Carole Barber has come to Paris, with its rain-slicked slate roofs and winding streets, to work on her novel - and to find herself after a lifetime in the spotlight. A legend of film and stage, Carole has set a standard of beauty and grace, devoting herself to her family and causes around the world. But on this cool November evening, as her taxi speeds into a tunnel just past the Louvre, a fiery instant of terror shatters hundreds of lives - and leaves Carole alone, unconscious and unidentified in a Paris emergency room. At the Ritz, they wonder where their famous, incognito guest has gone. From California to London, Carole’s friends and family begin to make inquiries. Then comes a moment of shock as they realize that Carole is far from home and fighting for her life. In the days that follow, the paparazzi swarm. A mysterious stranger, a man famous in his own realm, quietly visits the hospital to see the woman he once loved and never forgot. Carole’s two grown children rush to her bedside, waiting and praying - until the miraculous begins to happen…But as a woman whom the whole world knows slowly awakens, she knows nothing of herself. Every detail must be pieced back together - from a childhood in rural Mississippi to the early days of her career, from the unintentional hurt inflicted on her daughter to a fifteen-year-old secret love affair that went tragically wrong. But for Carole, an extraordinary opportunity has arisen in a life-threatening crisis: a second chance to count her blessings, heal wounded hearts, recapture lost love…and to live a life that will truly honor others - beginning with herself. A tale of survival and dignity, of small miracles and big surprises, Honor Thyself creates an unforgettable portrait of a public figure whose hopes, fears, and heartbreaks are as real as our own. Her courageous journey inspires us all. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa | 2/10/2014

    " I found the story to be extremely redundant!! I'm not sure if Danielle Steel has changed her writing over the last 10 - 15 years, (it's been a long time since I've read one of her books) or if I'm just more accustomed to a different writing style. Either way, I was pretty disappointed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/25/2014

    " This was pretty good as Danielle Steele books go. It kept my interest and it was a large print book from the large print book club that I just joined, again! I will be passing this on to my sister Barbara, because she and I are the only ones in our family that still read Steele books. I must say that her writing has improved in the last few books that she has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 angeline | 1/21/2014

    " Over all an okay book... Wasn't exactly a satisfying read but it wasn't terrible either. There were alot of facts that the author kind of just blindly gave away without really giving much substance to it. And also there was alot of information that the narrator would share that really didn't help in building the story at all and really could have been left out as it wasn't of any importance. The ending wasn't satisfying and I found the story to be quite anti - climatic. The first 2 chapters could have been summed up in maybe 10 pages but the author kept repeating herself. She would state the same fact over and over again, by the 4th time you're like "ok I get it, she has writers block. Let's move on already.." The ending was pretty bland. And the most exciting part happens pretty early on in the book. The rest of it is alot of fillers and then the end. Not very exciting. But still a good time killer none the less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica | 1/11/2014

    " I'm not usually a Danielle Steel fan, but I liked this book. Enough intrigue, romance, self discovery, etc. to make it a good listen. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy Anderson | 1/8/2014

    " Ugghhh...awful! No meat, no point! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackye | 1/7/2014

    " I always like Danielle Steel. This book is about an aging actress who is caught is a terrorist bombing in Paris, loses her memory and regains it plus a romance that ended 15 years ago in Paris. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Seidina Conley | 1/7/2014

    " One of the worst books I've ever read. It was long and repetitive. Danielle Steele repeated herself over and over again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 1/7/2014

    " Typical Danielle Steel, which means repetitive to the nth degree, but I was in the mood for some brain candy and this fit the bill. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 12/19/2013

    " This story was about a Hollywood star who gets into an accident and loses her memory for a short time. Everyone who comes to visit her is an integral part of her past and explains it to her and eventually she comes back to her memory. and falls in love with a man from her past. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brice | 11/13/2013

    " I really haven't read this book yet so I can't tell you what it's about. :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen Southall | 9/6/2013

    " Pretty good book - emphasized the importance of honoring your own ethics and directions. Especially important for women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 8/20/2013

    " This was ultimately a great book! Loved it lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 just | 7/19/2013

    " This was fantastic. Everything that I have come to love about Danielle Steele writing. She is so creative with her words, you can picture the settings the surroundings almost as if you were there watching. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 7/12/2013

    " I really think this is closer to a three and a half star rating, just not quite a four. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda Ann | 4/15/2013

    " Entertaining to listen to on long drives. Not a book I'd waste my precious reading time on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M. J. | 2/1/2013

    " This was wonderful, but...(spoiler!!!) I wish she didn't end up with the french guy that treated her like an asshole, but whatever. Her book, her story. :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 1/5/2013

    " Better than her usual stuff in that the happy ending wasn't a guarantee and wasn't the "Love Conquers All" so when I was encouraged to read it by our librarian I thought I'd try it and did enjoy it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise Gianelli | 11/11/2012

    " Skimmed read most of it. Typically Danielle Steel! Beautiful, rich boring people. Do not know why I borrowed I borrowed it from the library. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 10/27/2012

    " Stranded with only this book-on-cd...awful but I have to know how it ends. I'll wait for the next roadtrip. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giana | 10/11/2012

    " First time reading a Danielle Steel novel and it was great "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Belinda | 10/3/2012

    " Not one of my favorites. Steel's latest books seem to follow the formula of explaining how "perfect" everything is. A quick read as I ended up just paging through much of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miriam | 9/23/2012

    " Very disappointed with this book. It left me empty; wanting more of Carole. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystal | 1/14/2012

    " This author is pretty predictible, however her writing catches me instantly. A good quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrula | 12/22/2011

    " I felt like it didn't have a plot, or anything else interesting after the accident... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee | 12/9/2011

    " Not one of her better books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 10/30/2011

    " I liked this a lot. It was a quick and easy read but a nice story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Milly Dunaway | 10/15/2011

    " A pleasant read even if a bit predictable. "

    " Been reading her books for years. Still enjoy them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph | 4/14/2011

    " A good story, very introspective of the relationships. I am glad I picked it up as a audio book since it is not a genre that I would read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/11/2011

    " It was a good book. The book explored the concept of forgiveness. Forgiveness of a woman towards her ex-husband, daughter towards her mother, etc. It started to drag a little at the end, but all in all a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 11/14/2010

    " It was a good book, although I wish it didn't end when it did! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marnie | 10/18/2010

    " Not quite what I expected after the last book I just read, but still enjoyable none the least. Similarities of hotels and travel areas. Of course they do say Paris is full of love. Good easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 8/15/2010

    " I really like this book, it was one of her once that I couldn't put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cool | 7/26/2010

    " JOAN read - Takes place in Paris. Famous actress survives a terrorist attack, but without any memory. Easy read and very good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrula | 6/22/2010

    " I felt like it didn't have a plot, or anything else interesting after the accident... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 6/8/2010

    " Nevermind. I have read another Danielle Steel book, but this is no where near comparison with Special Delivery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 5/8/2010

    " Pretty good book - emphasized the importance of honoring your own ethics and directions. Especially important for women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 3/29/2010

    " Typical Danielle Steel, which means repetitive to the nth degree, but I was in the mood for some brain candy and this fit the bill. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yunisa | 2/23/2010

    " My 2nd DS. Better than "Second Chance", although it is still about "old" people - love story for people aged 50 and above. The way DS wrote it - there are times we can feel the characters' emotion, but most of the time, we can't - just like watching a bad movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 2/20/2010

    " Loved, loved this book. What an amazing story and an amazing women to overcome such a tragedy. Danielle Steele has such a way with words. Highly recommend this story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/3/2010

    " A fun easy vacation book, but not worth bringing home. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 12/26/2009

    " Grabbed off Mom-in-law's shelf - knew it would be a "quick" read for the holidays. Good story - seems like Steel has the same storyline in EVERY book - not sure if I'll read anymore by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacquie | 12/12/2009

    " Ok -- not a great story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 11/22/2009

    " A white-bread story of a famous movie star who loses her memory in a tunnel explosion in Paris and struggles to remember her life. Nothing spectacular, nothing horrible, just a book that goes along without highs or lows and then ends. A good read at the beach or on a plane. "
