Danielle Steel


In Circulation
Bestselling novelist Danielle Steel takes us on a harrowing journey into the heart of America's hidden shame in a novel that explores the power of forgiveness, the dark side of childhood, and one woman's unbreakable spirit. From her secret perch at the top of the stairs, seven-year-old Gabriella Harriman watches the guests arrive at her parents' lavish Manhattan townhouse. Later, she waits for the click, click, click of her mother's high heels, the angry words, and the pain that will follow. Even as a child, her only escape is through the stories she writes. When her parents' marriage collapses, Gabriella is given her first reprieve, as her father disappears, and her mother sends her to a convent. There, Gabriella's battered body and soul begin to mend, and she finds love in the arms of a young priest. But the relationship leads to tragedy when Father Joe must choose between the priesthood and Gabriella. Exiled and disgraced, Gabriella struggles to survive on her own in New York. Again, she seeks healing and escape through her writing. On a pilgrimage destined to bring her face-to-face with those who sought to destroy her in her early life, she finds forgiveness, freedom from guilt, and healing from abuse. When Gabriella faces what was done to her, and why, she herself is free at last.
