Description

Filled with heartbreak and betrayal, triumph and fulfillment, The Right Time is an intimate, richly rewarding novel about pursuing one's passion, from the world's favourite storyteller, Danielle Steel.Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination and talent far beyond her years. After her father's untimely death, at fourteen Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds twenty-six mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift. Alex writes in every spare moment, gripped by the plots, themes and characters that fill her mind. Midway through college, she has finished a novel - and manages to find an agent, then a publisher. But as Alexandra Winslow climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father's caution: men only read crime thrillers written by men. Consequently she publishes under the pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her, creating an isolating double life. Her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green - and her own life as a talented young woman - exposes her to the envious, the arrogant, and the Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is. The right time to open up always seems just out of reach, and would cost her dearly. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high.
