Honour Thyself by Danielle Steel
Carole Barber, a legend of film and stage, after a lifetime in the spotlight, has come to Paris to work on a novel, and, she hopes, to find herself. But one 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 trauma unit.
At the Ritz, they wonder where their incognito guest has gone. From California to London, Carole’s friends and family begin to make enquiries. It is a terrible shock when they realise that Carole is in a hospital far from home, fighting for her life. In the days that follow, the paparazzi swarm. A mysterious stranger 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 begin to happen.
For Carole, an extraordinary opportunity has arisen: a second chance to count her blessings, heal wounded hearts, recapture lost love …. and to live a life that will truly honour others – beginning with herself.
