NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Even the most perfect lives can be shattered in an instant. In this moving, emotionally charged novel, Danielle Steel introduces readers to an unforgettable cast of characters striving to overcome tragedy and discover the inner resources and resilience to win at life—once again.
 
WINNERS
 
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gripping? Not really. 13 Feb 2014
By jasmin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used to read Steel in high school and remember her books fondly, but I simply couldn't get into the characters or their stories and Steel's frequent use of 'and' at the beginning of sentences had me gritting my teeth by the end. As for the end - ridiculous tying up of loose ends with every main character finding love with another.

I got to the point where I was a bit awash with Danielle Steels novels and the story lines were just a bit too Hollywood type based for me . After a break however I tried this novel and really enjoyed it

3.0 out of 5 stars The usual format.... 21 July 2014
By jg
Format:Hardcover
Usual DS format;- high achieving female character suffers personal tragedy but but by the end of the book everything is resolved and it's happy ever after.
In this case it was a bit over the top and we had multiple characters being paired off in rather a hurried ending!
Easy reading that does not require concentration but I am increasingly wondering whether the author is trying to set a record for the number of books she writes each year?
I got the chance to borrow this copy and I think that this review could apply to most books by DS as she relies on the same formula consistently. However, I still end up reading some of her novels each year so I can't be too critical!
Ideal for comfy, easy reading and you know a happy ending is always guaranteed.
