Danielle Steel is so successful, she has been called a "publishing phenomena" by the Los Angeles Times Book Review. Her best-selling romances sparkle with the glamorous characters and heady emotions that attract millions of readers to her books. In The Ranch, three women-inseparable friends during college-reunite for a vacation at Wyoming ranch. Although each woman is successful: one is a popular singer, one is a physician working with AIDS patients, and one is the wife of an international trial lawyer, each is also looking for the strength to cope with personal tragedy. As they share stories of their lives and spend scenic days together, they help each other discover ways to make their dreams come true. Moving from the streets of New York to the breathtaking grandeur of the Grand Tetons, The Ranch paints a dramatic story that will sweep you into the marvellous world of Danielle Steel. Ron McLarty's dramatic narration smoothly captures each emotion and mood. If this is your first visit, you'll soon join the legions of her fans who wait eagerly for the next book.

Professional reviews

"The Ranch is the first of Danielle Steel's many novels to be tackled by Recorded Books. Unfortunately, the results are not up to this company's usual excellent standards. Much of the fault lies with the material--the writing is banal and repetitive; the plot about three college friends who meet later in life at a dude ranch in Wyoming seems destined for a TV miniseries. If ever an audiobook cried out for abridging, this is it. As this is primarily a woman's story, the choice of a male narrator seems odd. Ron McLarty does a decent job of reading but makes no attempt to change voices for the various characters. Sometimes it's unclear whose trite thoughts he's expressing. A four-cassette abridgment is also read by McLarty. In this case, less text can only be an improvement. J.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
