NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Capturing historical events, terrifying moments of danger, tragedy, the price of war, and the invincible spirit of a woman of honor, The Award is a monumental tale from one of our most gifted storytellers—Danielle Steel’s finest, most emotionally resonant novel yet.Gaëlle de Barbet is sixteen years old in 1940 when the German army occupies France and frightening changes begin to occur. She is shocked and powerless when French gendarmes take away her closest friend, Rebekah Feldmann, and her family for deportation to an unknown, ominous fate. The local German military commandant makes Gaëlle’s family estate outside Lyon into his headquarters. Her father and brother are killed by the Germans; her mother fades away into madness. Trusted friends and employees become traitors. And Gaëlle begins a perilous journey with the French Resistance, hoping to save lives to make up for the beloved friend she could do nothing to help. Taking terrifying risks, Gaëlle becomes a valuable member of the Resistance, fearlessly delivering Jewish children to safety under the eyes of the Gestapo and their French collaborators. Then she is suddenly approached by the German commandant with an astonishing, dangerous plan to save part of France’s artistic heritage. Conducted in secret, flawlessly carried out, her missions will mark her for years, when she is falsely accused of collaboration at the end of the war. Orphaned and alone, she begins a new life in Paris, with the ghosts of the past always close at hand. Gaëlle’s life will take her from Paris to New York, from a career as a Dior model to marriage and motherhood, unbearable loss, and mature, lasting love. She returns to Paris to run a small museum, honoring victims of the Holocaust. But her label as a collaborator remains, until her granddaughter, a respected political journalist, ensures that her grandmother’s brave acts are recognized. Now a grateful nation will finally absolve this remarkable woman and honor her as the war hero she was.

I have read every book Danielle Steel has written - some better than others, some too typically Steele, but The Award is different. It brings World War II and the post-war time period to life. As another reviewer said, few books have touched me this deeply. The personalized history is fascinating, the humanizing of a time period most of us only know from history books. Highly recommend this excellent read!

This is a story that captures the history of the Jews persecution, the resistance movement in France, culminating many years later in "The Award" ceremony to heroic figures. It is also the story of survival after war, career, marriage, family.... and the usual problems and loss within a marriage, and finding a life again after loss.
It is the usual Danielle Steel novel formula. I debated about giving it a 3 or a 4 rating, because I felt it could have dealt with more depth about the war, the death camps, the efforts of the resistance to save children. I've read other novels that were deeper and more effective in writing about such issues. I also felt that the novel wrapped up the later part of Gaelle's life rather quickly and neatly, when family issues could have been deeper written about conflict with the first child. Gaelle has an invincible spirit, a forgiving spirit, one who loves deeply and doesn't brag about her heroic measures in the past. It is her granddaughter who goes to great efforts to tell her courageous story.
I think I would enjoy her novels more if Danielle Steel wasn't in such a rush to publish so many per year. I prefer a little more substance to the plot, and a slower resolution to the ending. I used to enjoy her novels more in the past.

I found this to be one of Danielle Steel's best. It is the story of Gaelle de Barbet during World War II.
Gaelle is sixteen years old at this time and is witness to some of the atrocities inflicted upon others when the Germans overtook France. She is heartbroken when her best friend and her family are taken away because they happen to be Jewish. Eventually she becomes part of the Resistance and becomes an unsung hero. But there is alot of misinformation about her and she becomes ostracized.

You will have to read the book to find out what happens next. If you enjoyed Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale, you will love this book. There is much heartbreak but also much love. A book that leaves you thinking about it long after you have finished it.

The book touched on the evils of the Hitler years of the war and his hatred of people that didn't match his idea of perfect. The courage of a young girl to do right. The judgment of people that had no idea of what a good person she was. The granddaugher that brought attention to the good she did.

Another great read By Danielle Steel; it was hard to put the book down once I started reading it. Gave me probable insight into the atrocities surrounding the effort to save people during the war, and the bravery of all those involved was commendable.

I am a voracious reader and few books have touched me deeply like
The Award” by Danielle Steel. While it is somewhat a typical Steele fictional novel, there are parts or parcel of a dark time in world history. Lest we forget or a younger generation that is without knowledge of these events, we can gleam a simple and enduring message. Where there is darkness, there is light. Where there is cruelty there is still compassion. The message from this story is that love, compassion and hope will conquer all. Excellent read.

Another great book that I read from steel. She always takes you in an adventure in her life I feel or order people. I also like that her books have a happy ending. Life is hard enough so at times you sit down and read a book from her and you say. My life is simple glad I did not have to go thru that what she wrote. Makes you appreciate your own life what we have. Many thanks again steel and keep on writing.
I liked the idea of this book. As I have never ready anything by Danielle Steele before my expectations were high. Unfortunately, I found her writing to be inconsistent and sometimes elementary.
At times the book seemed to be written two different people. I found the repetition irritating, as if the author was just trying to make the book longer. I also got tired of the sentences starting with "and", "but" and "yet". One sentence had five "and"s in it! Not what I expected from such a popular author.
Again, I enjoyed the story line but perhaps a little more editing would have made it a more enjoyable read overall.
