Iris Cooper has been singing for as long as she can remember, hitting the high notes like no one else. When she is twelve years old, her father convinces a bar owner in Lake City, Texas to let her perform and she stuns the audience. In the years that follow, staying nowhere for long, father and daughter move from one dusty town to the next, her passion for music growing each time she grabs the microphone at another roadside bar.
But it’s not an easy life for Iris with her father taking care of her and using her income to pay for gambling, women and alcohol. When she starts touring at eighteen, she hires a real manager. However, he also exploits her, and the singers and musicians she travels with are really the only family she has from her. It is they who really give Iris the courage to finally fly free, leave the tour and also follow her dreams.
After years of enduring the hardships of the road, exploitation and abuse to do what she loves, Iris’s big break comes when her talent skyrockets. But at last on top, Iris still has to fight every step of the way. In The High Notes, Danielle Steel tells an inspiring story about finding the strength to stand up for yourself and your dreams, no matter what it takes.

Iris Cooper began singing as a child in the bars her father took her to. After she finished singing, her father made her wait in the truck, whether it was very hot or very cold, while inside it he drank with the money she had earned.
Her father signed her to a five-year contract in which they did not treat her well. After ending that contract, she told her father that she took all the money she had earned and she ended it. He wouldn’t get any more money from her.
She signed a five year contract and this one was even worse than the first one and she only spent four years. She fled. She knew what would happen if her manager found her, so she tried to keep a low profile.
After she ran away, things changed for Iris. She seemed like she met certain people that she was destined to meet. They had a difficult childhood, little to no family, and never gave up or backed down. Iris and Boy loved to sing. While she was singing under her last contract, she got a name for someone in New York, so she was there when she ran away from her. Before arriving there, she met Boy and they sang together in a bar, when they decided it was time to move on, she invited Boy to go to New York with her. She had a name and a phone number.
When they got to New York, Iris called the number and met Clay, a manager who helped singers who had paid dues to abusive managers. Iris asked if she could bring her duet partner when she came in so she could hear her sing. He said yes and when she came in she sang, then she and Boy sang a duet and Clay let Boy sing. He gave them both contracts, and he and her attorneys got her out of the last year of her contract with the abusive manager.
She learned that Clay also had a rough childhood, so they bonded on many levels. Clay was her mentor, boss, manager, and Boy’s, and he took care of them. When they started the tour, she went back to the bar where she started singing and Clay asked if he could join her. When she got to her bar they remembered her and heard her sing and were very happy that she was okay. She told them that they were the only family she had ever had and that if they hadn’t fed her while she was waiting for her father, things would have been different.
This is Iris’s journey, from a rocky start, to getting worse, to meeting the right people who changed everything. In bad times, she focused on just wanting to sing. She did not care where she went, church, bar, wherever she could sing, and that helped her get ahead and led her to meet people who were like her and who only wanted the best for her. She changed her life, and some bad things still happened. The difference was that they had to go through, they were no longer alone.
