Southern Lights

Southern Lights
by Danielle Steel

Alexa Hamilton is divorced and lives a comfortable life in New York with her daughter, Savannah. Alexa is also the Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan and recently was assigned a murder case. That is when their lives turned upside down. Savannah started receiving anonymous notes and Alexa believes they are from the serial killer she is trying to convict. In order to keep her daughter safe, Alexa asks her ex-husband if Savannah can stay with him in Charleston. Savannah is uprooted to another place and culture during her senior year, she must deal with a nasty stepmother, and reacquaint herself with a grandmother who she has not heard from in years. Alexa visits Savannah in Charleston, and during these visits, has to deal with the hurt and anger she has carried all these years. Both mother and daughter must learn to cope with their separation, southern hospitality, and cultural differences.

Excellent novel!
