From San Francisco to Paris, the lives of four talented trauma doctors are changed forever in Turning Point, a heart-pounding and gripping medical drama by the world's favourite storyteller Danielle Steel.

Four very different doctors battle disaster on the frontline every day.

Bill Browning heads the trauma unit at San Francisco’s busiest emergency room. With his ex-wife and daughters in London, he immerses himself in his work and lives for the little time he can spend with his children.

A rising star at her teaching hospital, Stephanie Lawrence is left with no time for her young family.

Harvard-educated Wendy Jones is a dedicated trauma doctor, trapped in an affair with a married cardiac surgeon.

And Tom Wylie’s popularity with women rivals his superb medical skills, but he refuses to let anyone get too close.

This talented group of doctors is chosen for an unusual project: to work with their counterparts in Paris in a mass-casualty training programme. But after an unspeakable act of mass violence brings them closer together, it marks a stark turning point and they are forced to question the way they live their lives.

Will they be able to recover from their shared trauma and make real changes for the better?
