This topic is open for discussion for Zoya by Danielle Steel.




Book Synopsis:
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.

Margaret (everlastinggrace) the more the merrier! :)


Hilary (bookboss) I am in the middle of chapter 4 right now. I am finding it a little hard to follow. I am not familiar with that particular period in Russian history, and I am finding all of the details and names overwhelming. I am hoping that I get more into the story, but right now I feel like I am just reading what happened to this person and that person, etc. Another book of hers that I read also started out sort of slow, and then picked right up and was great. I hope this one is the same way!


Hilary (bookboss) Finished the book
(view spoiler)
