After four years as a Wall Street attorney, Julian returned to Alabama in 1975 as an Assistant Attorney General.

He has won numerous awards from the SCLC, NAACP, and other civil rights groups.

Author: Danielle Steel
Description: Danielle Steel tells the story of a family reinventing itself in America, while the country they left behind is engulfed in flames and madness, and men like Alex von Hemmerle are forced to make unbearable choices. Alex’s daughter will find sanctuary in England. In America, Nick will find love, his sons will find a future, and their left-behind world will eventually find them. A novel of hope and sacrifice, of tragedy, challenge, and rebirth, Pegasus is a brilliant family chronicle that unfolds across half a century—a masterwork from one of our most beloved writers. ~Dust Jacket
