In Child's Play, the world's favourite storyteller, Danielle Steel movingly writes about the highs and lows of motherhood in this powerful family drama.

Kate Morgan is a senior partner at a prestigious New York law firm. She couldn’t be prouder of her three grown children, who have all excelled in their chosen careers. A single mother after the death of her husband, Kate keeps a tight rein on her family, her career and even her own emotions. But she’s never asked herself if she truly knows her children or their dreams in life. She is about to find out.

One by one, each of her children makes a sudden choice that turns Kate’s world upside down. When events begin to escalate, Kate can't keep up and heavily organized life is thrown into turmoil. Kate slowly discovers that happiness is living the life you can choose. But can she accept the paths her children have taken?
