Against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution  and World War I Europe, Zoya, young cousin to  the Tsar, flees St. Petersburg to Paris to find safety. Her entire  world forever changed, she faces hard times and joins the   Ballet Russe in Paris. And then, when life is kind to her,  Zoya moves on to a new and glittering life in New York. The  days of ease are all too brief as the Depression strikes, and  she loses everything yet again. It is her career, and the man she  meets in the course of it, which ultimately save her, as she  rebuilds her life through the war years and beyond. And it is  her family that comes to mean everything to her. From the roaring twenties to  the 1980's, Zoya remains a rare and spirited  woman whose legacy will live on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Great book :) also gives a lot of historical info... I would recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly Tolstoy Well. 'Sizzling drama and intricate plotting' might be pushing it JUST a little. But at least in this case Steel has taken the trouble to create a fairly intriguing set of characters (albeit just one -- instead of eight -- mentions of Zoya's red hair on any given page would have been more than enough, thank you). She's also given them potentially nifty things to do (I was especially hopeful of the part where she dances with the Ballet Russe). But...a genuinely dramatic, involving tale of a Russian ballerina's odyssey from the Revolution to the mean streets of New York to falling in love in Paris would require literary imagination and flair...and that's the one thing that ain't gonna happen in a Danielle Steel novel anytime soon.
