I find some of her books to be hit-or-miss, but I absolutely loved this one. A Russian Countess, a few wars, it was all very well done. ( )

I really loved the characters in this story, Zoya stole my heart. I read it twice, by accident. I read it years ago and then picked it up at the library again last year. I was nearly through it when I realized why the characters were so familiar.

I do that often. Bad memory? Maybe. ( )

This was my last Danielle Steel book, after being an avid fan and reader for years. With Zoya, however, I reached the "how-much-more-can-happen-to-one-person" level once and for all. Too much negative without the balance of positive throughout the book made it hard to swallow for me. Perhaps that's the point of her books. Maybe I just finally outgrew the Steel Formula. ( )

Tras la devastación de la Revolución rusa y la Primera Guerra Mundial, Zoya, la joven prima del zar, vuela de San Petersburgo a París en busca de refugio. Su mundo ha cambiado para siempre, y tras pasar por terribles momentos, logra unirse al ballet ruso en París, con cuyo salario mantiene a su indómita abuela y a si misma. El amor aparece de nuevo cuando conoce al capitán Clayton Andrews, quien, cautivado por la joven aristócrata, se la lleva a Manhattan como su prometida. Sin embargo, ninguno de los dos imagina las penurias que deberán soportar durante los años de depresión que asolan Norteamérica.

First words
Zoya closed her eyes again as the troika flew across the icy ground, the soft mist of snow leaving tiny damp kisses on her cheeks, and turning her eyelashes to lace as she listened to the horses' bells dancing in her ears like music.
