A New York Times Best Selling Author. "Stepping" refers to step-parenting - but in the larger sense, it also refers to "putting one foot in front of the other" during hard times. Here, the two are admirably combined as Nancy Thayer explores the trials - and rewards - of step-parenting. Zelda is married to a popular college professor with an angry ex-wife and two pre-teen daughters who seem hell bent on making her public enemy #1. How she resolves herself to loving her husband's children as much they will allow her to, and to creating her own unique place in their nuclear family is a testament to Thayer's incredible compassion and insight.
