As a journalist, Paxton Andrews would experience Vietnam first-hand. For seven years she would write an acclaimed newspaper column for Americans, from the front line. For her and for the men who fought there, life would never be the same again.
Assistant D.A. Alexa Hamilton has just been handed the kind of case that makes careers: the trial of accused serial killer Luke Quentin. Sifting through mountains of forensic evidence, Alexa relentlessly builds her case and prepares for a high-stakes trial . . . until threatening letters throw her private life into turmoil.
The letters are addressed to Alexa`s beautiful 17-year-old daughter, Savannah, who Alexa has raised alone since her painful divorce years before. Alexa is certain that Quentin is behind the letters – and that they are too dangerous to ignore. Suddenly Alexa must make the toughest choice of all – and send her daughter back to the very place that Alexa swore she would never return: to her ex-husband`s world of southern tradition, long memories, and the antebellum charm of Charleston.
While Alexa`s trial builds to a climax in New York, her daughter is settling into southern life, discovering a part of her family history she`s never known. As a family`s wounds are exposed and the healing begins, Alexa and Savannah, after a season in different worlds, will come together again – strengthened by the trials they have faced, changed by the mysteries they have unraveled, armed with miracles that are uniquely their own.
To look at one was to see the other. For family, even the girls' own father, it was a constant guessing game. For strangers, the surprise was overwhelming. And for the twins Olivia and Victoria Henderson, two remarkable young women coming of age at the turn of the century, their bond was mysterious, marvelous, and often playful--a secret realm only they inhabited.
Olivia and Victoria were the beloved daughters of a man who never fully recovered from his wife's death bearing them in 1893. Shy, serious Olivia, born eleven minutes before her sister, had taken over the role of mother in their lush New York estate, managing not only a household but her rebellious twin's flights of fancy. Free-spirited Victoria wanted to change the world. She embraced the women's suffrage movement and dreamed of sailing to war-torn Europe. Then, in the girls' twenty-first year, as the First World War escalated overseas, a fateful choice changed their lives forever.
Danielle Steel's fifty-first bestselling novel tells the story of an extraordinary man, the woman who loved him, and a bond so powerful it could never be broken. It is about finding the courage to let someone you love fly free....
The phone call came on a snowy December afternoon. Kate was certain it was Joe, the brilliant, visionary man who had been her soul mate, her driving force since the night they met, almost thirty-four years before. What she got was the one call she had never wanted, and didn't expect.
As the snow continued to fall, Kate's mind drifted back, to the moment when she and Joe first met. She had been just seventeen and he was young, powerful, dazzling, and different from any man she'd ever known.
It was just days before Christmas, 1940. The war is raging in Europe when Kate Jamison makes her debut in New York City. In a room filled with the scions of East Coast society and the leading political figures of the day, it is Joe Allbright who catches Kate's eye.
At twenty-nine, Joe is the brilliant protégé of Charles Lindbergh, and already a legend in flying circles for his record-breaking speed and state-of-the-art airplane designs. All Kate sees is a tall, strikingly handsome man who seems at once awkward and larger-than-life, like a shining star -- just out of reach. Joe, too, is caught off balance by his response to Kate, seeing in this beautiful young woman vitality and youth, the lifelong soul mate he never expected to find.
