La incomparable Danielle Steel nos ofrece una historia diferente y actual en la que una serie de dramáticos acontecimientos cambiará para siempre la vida de sus protagonistas. Saint Ambrose es la exclusiva escuela donde han estudiado los varones adinerados del lugar desde hace más de un siglo. Y este curso admitirá por primera vez alumnado femenino en un entorno que parece idílico, pero que en realidad oculta problemas familiares, inseguridades y soledad. Una faceta oscura de la vida en el internado sale a la luz cuando, tras una fiesta, una estudiante acaba en el hospital inconsciente. Quienes saben lo que pasó han decidido guardar silencio, pero a medida que la investigación avanza y la policía intenta desenmascarar al culpable, los involucrados se enfrentan a una encrucijada y deben elegir entre la salida más fácil y hacer lo correcto, entre decir la verdad o mentir. Nadie en Saint Ambrose escapará a las consecuencias.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • At an elite private school in Massachusetts, a wide circle of lives will be forever changed by a devastating series of events in Danielle Steel’s riveting new novel.Saint Ambrose Prep is a place where the wealthy send their children for the best possible education, with teachers and administrators from the Ivy League, and graduates who become future lawyers, politicians, filmmakers, and CEOs. Traditionally a boys-only school, Saint Ambrose has just enrolled one hundred and forty female students for the first time. Even though most of the kids on the campus have all the privilege in the world, some are struggling, wounded by their parents’ bitter divorces, dealing with insecurity and loneliness. In such a heightened environment, even the smallest spark can become a raging fire.One day after the school’s annual Halloween event, a student lies in the hospital, her system poisoned by dangerous levels of alcohol. Everyone in this sheltered community—parents, teachers, students, police, and the media—are left trying to figure out what actually happened. Only the handful of students who were there when she was attacked truly know the answers and they have vowed to keep one another’s secrets. As details from the evening emerge, powerful families are forced to hire attorneys and less powerful families watch helplessly. Parents’ marriages are jeopardized, and students’ futures are impacted. No one at Saint Ambrose can escape the fallout of a life-altering event.In this compelling novel, Danielle Steel illuminates the dark side of one drunken night, with its tragic consequences, from every possible point of view. As the drama unfolds, the characters will reach a crossroads where they must choose between truth and lies, between what is easy and what is right, and find the moral compass they will need for the rest of their lives.
