I. Love. This. Book. As a member of the Russian royalty before the murder of the Tzar in the arly 1900's, Zoya is absolutely lovable, right down to her scandalous wish to become a professional dancer -- akin to a whore in her families eyes :o And she does it, too, when times become so desperate after the revolution that food is scarce and rubies sell as if they were rocks found on the side of the street. I really felt like I was there, that I knew her, and her pain seemed so real! And the ending .. the ending was fabulous, tieing everything togeather so wonderfully. Spanning three generations through three husdbands and countless childeren, homes, hardships, trials and tribulations, this book really is a masterpiece.

This book is full of rich descriptions, and really drew me in to the story. It is one of Danielle Steel's earlier novels, and has the quality writing that made her famous. It is a fairly long book, with several plot twists.

I loved this book. I am not much of a Danielle Steel book person, but this was good, story of a family over generations.

From running from the danger of the Russian revolution to the poverty of American life, Zoya proves anything can be overcome. Fantastic movie also.
