Filled with heartbreak, betrayal and triumph, The Right Time is an uplifting novel about pursuing one's ambition 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, with a talent far beyond her years. After her father's untimely death, Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, who encourage her to follow her dream.
Alex writes in every spare moment and completes her first novel in college. It's quickly snapped up by a publisher, but Alex, remembering her late father's advice, insists on writing under a male pseudonym, with her true identity known only to a few.
Success comes easily to Alex, but its toll is heavy. Her secret life as the mysterious Alexander Green 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. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high.
Danielle Steel has been hailed as one of the world's most popular authors, with nearly a billion copies of her novels sold. Her recent many international bestsellers include The Duchess, The Right Time and Fairytale. She is also the author of His Bright Light, the story of her son Nick Traina's life and death; A Gift of Hope, a memoir of her work with the homeless; and the children's books Pretty Minnie in Paris and Pretty Minnie in Hollywood.
