The Right Time: A Novel by Danielle Steel

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Filled with heartbreak and betrayal, triumph and fulfillment, The Right Time is an intimate, richly rewarding novel about pursuing one’s passion and succeeding beyond one’s wildest dreams.
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 and themes and characters that fill her mind. Midway through college, she has finished a novel—and manages to find a seasoned agent, then a publisher. But as she climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father’s admonition: Men read crime thrillers by men only—and so Alexandra Winslow publishes under the pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her, creating a double life that isolates her.
Her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green—and her own life as a talented young woman—expose her to the envious, the arrogant, and Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is. Always, the right time to open up 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.

I have been a follower of this great author for many many years, read every book and I am always anxiously waiting her next novel. I feel that with every book she just gets better and better. Keep them coming!!! This last book made me feel like the talent of Alex and how the stories came to her was what Danielle Steele lives. Thank you for your wonderful stories.

Danielle Steel is one of the best! 'The Right Time' touched the depth of my heart with many true-to-life challenges, especially, alzheimer disease. Alex is such a strong, wise character who shows strength through many trying life events. Danielle Steel lets her readers know that the right time is possible.

In “The Right Time,” Danielle Steele takes us through the life of a talented mystery writer, starting with her troubled childhood. It is the story of following your heart and your passion for your calling, and it the story of a deep love. But this is no fluff. Ms. Steele’s characters deal with such serious issues as Alzheimer’s, cancer and abortion. She is a very gifted writer, whose resesarch is obvious. Ms. Steele has a new fan in me, and I will share my excitement with family and friends.

During her childhood, a young girl listens to her parents argue, divorce, and eventually die. Alexandra Winslow writes crime stories to escape. Midway through college, she finishes a novel and publishes it under the pseudonym Alexander Green. This creates a double life that isolates her. I enjoyed the omniscient point of view writing style of Steel. The story moved smoothly like a steady stream. I like one particular line in the book, "Sex gets in the way of love." That statement spoke volumes about the personality of Alex. I long remember Alexandria Winslow, and will always wonder how she could live in the shadows of greatness. As a writer and author myself, I felt encouraged. What a great read and powerful ending.
