Publisher's Summary

Filled with heartbreak and betrayal, triumph and fulfillment, The Right Time is an intimate, richly rewarding novel about pursuing one's passion and succeeding beyond one's wildest dreams.

Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father - and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years. After her father's untimely death, at 14 Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds 26 mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift. Alex writes in every spare moment, gripped by the plots and themes and characters that fill her mind.

Midway through college, she has finished a novel - and manages to find a seasoned agent and then a publisher. But as she climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father's admonition: men read crime thrillers by men only - and so Alexandra Winslow publishes under the pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her and creating a double life that isolates her. Her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green - and her own life as a talented young woman - expose her to the envious, the arrogant, and Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is. Always, the right time to open up seems just out of reach and would cost her dearly. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high.

    "Average"

    Great performance, but plot was average. Interesting enough to keep listening, but not overly engaging. Not one of Steel's best.

    "I guess I'm not a fan."

    I found this book to be very boring. The characters were boring. There was nothing to make you want to keep turning the page.

    "Awesome"

    Miss Steel at her finest.
    Unpredictable.
    Every character is strong and has an important part of the storyline.
    Pulls out every emotion. Very well done, worth a second listen.

    "Fabulous story"
    Would you listen to The Right Time again? Why?

    Yes. It is one of the best stories by Danielle Steel in a long time. It kept me interest straight thru the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alex. She was young in many ways but had an old soul. I am glad that she had such great people looking out for her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she had to meet the publishers.


    If you could rename The Right Time, what would you call it?

    I would not change it.

    "Disappointed"

    I'm an avid recording books reader. I've also been a fan of Danielle Steel for many many years. Unfortunately while the narrator did a good job, the content felt like it was phoned in. The text repeated things over and over again. I would say that the plot was reiterated in every single chapter. While I liked the story, I felt that it treated the reader like they weren't paying attention to previous content or that the content was to difficult to understand. Relationships didn't build, just explained in past tense. Very disappointed.
