LEGACY At the age of thirty-eight, Brigitte Nicholson has a safe job she likes, a man she loves, and a book on the women’s suffrage movement that she will finish — someday. Someday is Brigitte’s watchword. Someday she and Tedwill clarify their relationship. Someday she will have children. Someday she will stop playing it so safe. Then, on a snowy day in Boston, Brigitte’s life is jolted when she loses both her man and her job.
As she struggles to regain her balance, Brigitte agrees to help her mother on a family genealogy project. In Salt Lake City at the Family History Library, she makes a stunning discovery. How did Brigitte’s mysterious ancestor Wachiwi, a Dakota Sioux, travel from the Great Plains to the French court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette? How did she come to marry into Brigitte’s family?
Following the threads of Wachiwi’s life, Brigitte travels to South Dakota, then on to Paris, irresistibly drawn to this brave young woman who lived so long ago. And as she comes closer to solving the puzzle of Wachiwi’s journey, her previously safe, quiet life becomes an adventure of its own. With a complex and powerful family legacy coming to life around her, someday is no longer in the future. Instead, in Danielle Steel’s mesmerizing novel, someday is now.
ROGUE Being married to Blake had been an amazing adventure for Maxine. Brilliant, charismatic, and wholly unpredictable, Blake Williams made millions and grabbed headlines as a dot-com entrepreneur. His only shortcoming was as a husband—first his work, and then his never-ending quest for fun kept him constantly on the move. For five years, Blake and Maxine have worked out an odd but amicable divorce. Blake enjoys his globe-trotting lifestyle, while Maxine raises their kids in Manhattan and pursues her passion, working as a psychiatrist. Then everything changes….
For Maxine, it starts when she falls in love with Dr. Charles West, a man who is everything Blake is not. For Blake, it begins when a devastating earthquake strikes near one of his palatial foreign homes, and he sees hundreds of orphaned children in need of shelter. Now, Blake wants Maxine in his life again—as a partner in a humanitarian project. For Maxine, the choice is clear. But Blake’s sudden transformation raises questions she’s never managed to answer…and some she’s afraid to ask.
An unforgettable story of two people pursuing happiness from opposite directions, Rogue is a journey of choices and the amazing opportunities that come together—just when life seems to have been successfully rearranged at last.
