On the eve of Sarah Whitfield's 75th birthday, she stands at the window of her chateau in France, waiting for her family to join her. Her memories take her back to the 1930s in New York, to her early marriage and subsequent shameful divorce. She is persuaded by her parents to join them on a trip abroad in the growing turmoil of pre-war Europe. There she meets Wiliam, Duke of Whitfield. Older than Sarah, and fourteenth in line to the British throne, he sparks her intellectual curiosity and makes her laugh. They make their home in a beautiful crumbling French chateau until they are parted by the war. Afterwards they are able to return to the chateau and establish the jewel collection which leads to the House of Whitfield, jewellers to the crowned heads of all Europe. Together they produce a family of four, each of whom is drawn into the family business. JEWELS is the story of a great house of gems, a rare family, and an extraordinary marriage. Once again, Danielle Steel explores the lives of people facing challenges we recognise as our own, against the backdrop of war, passion and international intrigue. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey Cook | 2/6/2014

    " My favorite Danielle Steel novel, and the only one I own. As good as the TV Movie. Filled with romance, family, royalty, war, and history. The best book she ever wrote. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 2/4/2014

    " This is a great story about romance and jewels. A compelling read with intrigue and drama. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachael | 1/19/2014

    " Very intriguing, however I cheated and watched the movie. Bad idea "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/18/2014

    " I was never a Danielle Steel fan. I carried the perception that her books were trashy and that I had no use for that crap. And this remains the only book of hers that I have read. But I don't regret it. I was first turned on to the story when I saw the movie version on TV one day. It's a 6-hour miniseries that I could not get enough of. I was totally engaged and adored the love story between the two main characters. It was the kind of love I wanted. The story is full of romance, royalty, war, lots and lots of children, money, sex, scandal, and like the title suggests, a lot of jewelry. When I found out the movie was based off a book, I knew I had to read it. And like it's film version, the book was quite long and took a while for me to read but I absolutely loved it and could almost say that the book was better than the movie. Almost. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 10/8/2013

    " I liked the story, however I am learning that I don't think I like the stories from the early 1900's and before then. I am a more of a modern story reader. "
