Charles Vincent appeared to have it all - a beautiful wife, successful children, and a high-paying job. But beneath the surface, he was trapped in a loveless marriage and his job was nothing more than a means to an end. Everything changed one fateful night as he drove along the Normandy coast on his way to their luxurious château for the weekend. In a moment of terror, Charles fell asleep at the wheel and veered off the road, plummeting thirty feet down a rocky cliff.
Despite all odds, Charles survived the accident. Gaining the strength to climb to safety, he set out on foot, bruised, bloodied, and desperate for help. In the dead of night, he stumbled upon a cabin, where he met the kind and beautiful Aude Saint-Martin. They instantly connected and as she nursed him back to health, Charles began to experience the passion he had been missing for so many years.
As he recovered, Charles had a startling revelation- he didn't have to return to his old life. He could choose to disappear, to walk away from everything. When his car was discovered, he would be presumed dead, lost at sea. If he stayed with Aude, he had a chance at a happier life he never knew existed. It all seemed too good to resist. But Aude had secrets of her own, and soon their pasts caught up with them, putting everything they had built at risk.
In Without a Trace, Danielle Steel tells a captivating story of two people's journey as they take the ultimate risk for the chance at the life they've always wanted. It poses a question, what would you do if given the opportunity to walk away from everything and start anew with a clean slate?
