Probably one of Danielle Steel's best yet. I love, love, loved every minute of it.

The story was exceptional, but I was continuously distracted by the narrator's poor presentation. I could read that material more effectively without having ever seen it -- and I just turned eighty-eight!

I loved this book, the story and characters felt real, and spent the the few chapters in tears, a really good read didn't want it to end
Where does The Award rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would say The Award is in my top 10 of favourite audiobooks as we not only seen a brief glimpse into the life of the main character but the author took us on a journey throughout her life .. we were able to see her at her happiest but yet it was the hardest of times which made her the person she turned out to be..
What did you like best about this story?
Gaëlle de Barbet was a character who was so brave throughout the war.. rescuing the Jewish children from the death camps bringing them to safety while living under the Nazi rule yet her personal life after the war she let her daughter rule her life as she still held the shame of the accusations from the time of her youth.
Have you listened to any of Adam Verner’s other performances? How does this one compare?
This is the first I have listened by this narrrator as sometimes I find the American accent annoying yet I could have listened to his dulcet tones forever as he was able to bring emotion through his narration and simple defeatism by changing the tone of his voice..
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Gaëlle de Barbet was finally acknowledged for her bravery through the war.. not by those who give her the award but her family especially her oldest daughter.
Any additional comments?
This is a fascinating book which showed not only the poverty of the main character's early years but as she progressed through life and her riches grew in different ways.. the simple pleasures of life were the ones she took so much happiness from.
