Publisher's Summary

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 15-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.

Very disappointed

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less repetitive story telling. Too many repeated phrases, story lines, etc. More dialogue and action from the characters. It was like reading someone's diary that they kept repeating because of loss of memory.

Would you ever listen to anything by Danielle Steel again?

Perhaps, I used to enjoy her books.

Did Kyf Brewer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He didn't have an opportunity because of the style of writing.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I got so bored and didn't even finish it. The first part was interesting until the bombing and then it just died!

Awesome

I just wish you knew what happened in the future. It was a cliff hanger. Maybe a sequel will come out.

Wanted more

Enjoyed the story , but needed more .
A little disappointed in that. I wonder if the will ever be a sequel. I guess I have to go back and see the date when this book was written.

Nicely Done

Honor Thyself is an intriguing story, nicely done in the typical happily ever after DS tradition.

A little too predictable

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would have made the story line more complicated. It was very predictable.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A good spy mystery.

What about Kyf Brewer’s performance did you like?

He did a good job, but would have preferred a female's voice for the female parts.

Honor Thyself

Any additional comments?

Honor Thyself is 9.5 hours of listening, read by Kyf Brewer.

Repeating myself a bit with other Danielle Steel book reviews …. but if you’re a fan, you’ll understand from where I speak :-). Danielle Steel is one of the most prolific writers in America today. As a reader, you either love her or hate her, there really is no in-between, and she has legions of fans. If you are ever in the mood for sweet romance, meaning a teenaged girl can read the book, pick up a Danielle Steel novel. It’s easy to become absorbed, the stories are not gray-matter growth material; they aren’t intended to be. Danielle Steel is a die-hard romantic, and directs her talents to that end, pretty much exclusively.

Most stories involve a strong female lead, as does Honor Thyself. The lead surrounds herself with unique, and sometimes quirky, characters and the trials and tribulations of each traverse the pages. A typical, Danielle Steelesque, satisfying conclusion. The books often speak to personal familial relationships and issues, as does Honor Thyself.

I’m pretty simple when it comes to critique of a narrator. If I don’t have to re-wind to determine who-is-talking-to-who, I’m good. Ergo, Brewer does a nice reading, a decent production.

Did I say ‘boy gets girl’? Pretty much! Beach reading paradise? Sorry if my review is redundant, similar to other Danielle Steel books. But, hey … the books are a bit redundant, too. Enjoy … if you like Danielle Steel beach reads.
