About this title

Synopsis:

One woman's odyssey through a century of turmoil ...St Petersburg: one famous night of violence in the October Revolution ends the lavish life of the Romanov court forever ? shattering the dreams of young Countess Zoya Ossupov. Paris: under the shadow of the Great War, emigres struggle for survival as taxi drivers, seamstresses and ballet dancers. Zoya flees there in poverty ? and leaves in glory. America: a glittering world of flappers, fast cars and furs in the Roaring Twenties; a world of comfort and cafe society that would come crashing down without warning. Zoya, living through it all, faces challenges and triumphs with an indomitable spirit. In Zoya, Danielle Steel has created a true heroine through masterful storytelling.

From the Publisher:

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.

"Genuinely touching... It is the misguided reader who skips a single page." --People.
