She then suddenly sees the character Alexander real life and in the flesh, and also some other characters come into the real world including the vampire that killed his family. I am trying to find the book that I read years ago where the character's name was Rachel. Rachel had run away from home because her father was abusing her, later upon which she found out she was a twin and her mother gave her sister away.
In the meantime, she was picked up by this character named Annie who was using her by placing her in a brothel and taking her money while he went to school. In the end Rachel became pregnant, and Danny made her get rid of it, watching the abortion making Rachel sterile Rachel became angry move to Hollywood became a waitress at this restaurant changed her name to Beverly.
Because Rachel was homely she saved up her money and went and had plastic surgery done. Rachel van became wealthy because the owners of the restaurant left all of their belongings to her all the wild Rachel had been looking for both her mother and her adoptive sister whose name was later revealed to to be Christine Singleton. Beverly then set up Danny for all of the wrongdoing he had done oh, by the way being a religious fanatic that he was and misleading people, to what she was arrested and he later attempted to hang himself which he botched.
This was revealed in the second book which I believe was entitled Stars and it further in the second book explained Christine Singleton backstory. Can anyone tell me the title of these books? I'm trying to find a book. I believe the title was "Mother". I didn't get a chance to read it, but what I do remember reading from the back was that it was a story about a woman who had lost her mother, sometime after, like a year maybe or more, she walks into a cafe or coffee shop.
I could be wrong on the place but it was some type of shop. The surroundings brought her to tears thinking about her mom. Later, the young girl loses her mom in a car accident and the other lady becomes the shoulder to cry on. They handle it differently. One wants to reach her mother from the other side and one never even dreamt of doing something like that.
If anyone could help that would be great. Thank you so much! I read a book over 50 years ago about 2 stranded children - a boy and a girl - can't remember if they survived a plane crash?

Then her dad and her arrived at the beach house and a bunch of crazy stuff went on and she started to get suspious when a girl vanished and no one remembered. So she started to investigate and then she saw her killer again and the people with the bracelts explained everything. I believe it was a newly-published book at that time. A very moving, poignant, somewhat gritty story about an African-American woman, a male boy or teen who may have also been African-American, an adoption theme perhaps, with a back story that I believe linked the two of them.

Talking late 70's, early 80's.
It concerned a boy who goes to a Christian youth group. His parents are splitting up. I remember him staying off school, been able to have a bed on the sofa, watch tv and having ice cream because he had a sore throat. The youth leader spoke about our body been like glove, and when you take your hand out of the glove then it's empty, illustrating the soul. He gave another talk about prayer, holding up a telephone which wasn't connected, this made the kids laugh.
