Carole Barber has come to
Paris, with its rain-slick slate roofs and winding streets,
to work on her novelâ€”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
livesâ€”and leaves Carole alone, unconscious and unidentified
in a Paris emergency room.

make inquiries. Then comes a moment of shock as they all
realize that Carole is far from home and fighting for her
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. Caroleâ€™s two grown children rush to her
bedside, waiting and prayingâ€”until the miraculous begins to
happen.â€¦But as a woman who the whole world knows slowly
awakens, she knows nothing of herself. Every detail must be
pieced back togetherâ€”from a childhood in rural Mississippi
to the early days of her career, from the unintentional hurt
inflicted on her daughter to a fifteen 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 loveâ€¦ and to live a life that will
truly honor othersâ€”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.
