Star - Danielle Steel
What is a star? What does stardom really mean?
In this, her twenty-fourth novel, Danielle Steel tells the unforgettable story of a woman and a man , each destined to illuminate the world.
For Crystal Wyatt, growing up on a ranch in northern California, Hollywood was a dream . . . a dream that seemed a million miles away. Yet her beauty singled her out even in the remote rural valley where she was born; her singing had the power to move those around her to tears and her longing to explore the world beyond the valley drove her on. From the time she was fourteen, events would conspire to lead her to stardom. Not rape, not murder, not the darkest scandals could keep her star from rising . . . even as it led her farther from the man she had met and fallen in love with when she was barely more than a child.
For Spencer Hill, a handsome young officer returning from World War II, Crystal was a vision, a fourteen-year-old girl whose beauty and radiance was a haunting presence he could never forget. In spite of doubts about what he really wanted, he would return to New York to become a lawyer and would find himself bound by professional, family and social ties that seemed unbreakable. But even as his star rose in Washington in Kennedy's brilliant circle that would become known as 'Camelot', his vision never faded. And although he had chosen again as he watched Crystal transformed from a glorious child into a beautiful, successful woman, he would be forced to make the final choice that could cost him everything he had worked so hard to attain.
In a time when men and women feel driven to pursue their most ambitious goals, Danielle Steel probes the lives of two compelling characters who will achieve the heights in spite of the most daunting obstacles. And as the panoramic events of two turbulent decades unfold in Hollywood, Washington and New York, she asks what it really means to follow . . . to become . . . a star.
