Silent Night (Pan MacMillan)
Emotionally gripping and richly involving, Silent Night explores how the heart has mysterious healing powers of its own, and that sometimes the best things happen when we think all is lost . . . Danielle Steel's latest novel is a deeply moving story of resilience, hope and the importance of family. Paige Watts is the ultimate stage mother. The daughter of Hollywood royalty, Paige channels her own acting dreams into making her daughter, Emma, a star. By the age of nine, Emma is playing a central role in a hit TV show. Then everything is shattered by unforeseeable tragedy. Now Emma is living with her Aunt Whitney, who had chosen a very different path from Paige. Whitney was always the career-driven older sister, loving a no-strings relationship and hating the cult of celebrity that enveloped their childhood. But at a moment's notice, Whitney must change her life in every way. Silent Night is a powerful family drama and an example of the world's favourite storyteller, Danielle Steel, at her most moving and compelling.
