Description
Eleven years have passed since Alexa Hamilton left the South behind, fleeing the pain of her ex-husband's betrayal and the cruelty of his prominent Charleston family. Now an assistant D.A. in Manhattan, Alexa has made a name for herself as a top prosecutor while juggling her role as devoted single mom to a teenage daughter. But everything changes when Alexa is handed her latest case: the trial of accused serial killer Luke Quentin. Alexa prepares for a high-stakes trial . . . until threatening letters are addressed to her beautiful seventeen-year-old daughter, Savannah. Alexa is certain that Quentin is behind the letters -- and that they are too dangerous to ignore. Suddenly she must make the toughest choice of all -- and send her daughter back to the very place she swore she would never return to: the place where her marriage ended in heartbreak . . . her ex-husband's world of southern tradition, memories of betrayal, and the antebellum charm of Charleston. Now, 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 and a father she barely knows. As secrets are exposed and old wounds are healed, Alexa and Savannah, after a season in different worlds, will come together again -- strengthened by the challenges they have faced, and with Savannah now at home in the southern world her mother fled. A novel that will catch you off guard at every turn, Southern Lights is Danielle Steel at her electrifying best.
