Publisher's Summary

Even the most perfect lives can be shattered in an instant. In this moving, emotionally charged novel, Danielle Steel introduces listeners to an unforgettable cast of characters striving to overcome tragedy and discover the inner resources and resilience to win at life - once again.
Lily Thomas is an aspiring ski champion training for the Olympics, a young woman with her heart set on winning the gold. But in one moment, Lily's future is changed forever, her hopes for the Olympics swept away in a tragic accident.
Dr. Jessie Matthews, the neurosurgeon who operates on her that night, endures a tragedy of her own, and instantly becomes the sole support of her four young children, while her own future hangs in the balance.
Bill, Lily's father, has pinned all his hopes on his only daughter, his dreams now shattered.
Other lives will entwine themselves with theirs: Joe, a financial manager, faces a ruined career at the hand of a dishonest partner. Carole, a psychologist at Mass General, is a breast cancer survivor, her body and heart scarred by what she's been through. Teddy, with a spinal cord injury worse than Lily's, dreams of college and becoming an artist.
From the ashes of their lives, six people fight to alter the course of destiny and refuse to be defeated. When Bill builds a remarkable rehab facility for his daughter, countless lives are forever altered, and each becomes a winner.
Winners is about refusing to be beaten, no matter how insurmountable the challenge. And when Lily gets on skis again and enters the Paralympics, the battle to brave life again is won. Winners is about more than surviving; it is about courage, victory, and triumph. When all appears to be lost, the battle has just begun.

Would only ever buy this on sale

This narrator was terrible! His attempt at a female voice was a joke. Entertaining story, but terrible writing. Story wasn't very realistic. A tragedy happens in the beginning but then afterwards literally everything is perfect? Also I think this authors favorite word is "pleased" said it at least 5 times a chapter. It was worth the cheap price I paid for since it was on sale, but I would never buy this full price.

One of my favorites from Danielle Steele

If you could sum up Winners in three words, what would they be?

Heartwarming, inspiring


Who was your favorite character and why?

Liked them all and how they each needed each other at the moment they came together.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Has to be Terry. I felt so sorry for him. Wouldn't it be great if parents like his were fiction? We all know better though.
