This week’s letter is “Z.”

I was so sure I wouldn’t find anything beginning with this letter, but then it just came to me!   Funny how that works sometimes.

So I am spotlighting Zoya, by Danielle Steel.  I haven’t read this book in a long, long time, but I do recall that it was delightful.

Here’s what I found on Amazon about this book:

With the emotional panache that pleases her devotees, Steel (Kaleidoscope) portrays Zoya Ossupov, a courageous young woman of Imperial Russia who experiences both ecstasy and trauma. Daughter of a count who is a cousin of Tsar Nicholas, Zoya enjoys a privileged, cloistered existence. Zoya, whose name means “life,” is on intimate terms with the tsar’s family. All of them, of course, are endangered by the Revolution. The insurgents slaughter the tsar and his kin, and cause the deaths of Zoya’s parents and brother, forcing her to flee to Paris with her aged but indomitable grandmother. Suffering in unaccustomed poverty, they are sustained by Zoya’s wages as a dancer with the Ballet Russe. Romance brightens her life following a chance encounter with an affluent New Yorker, Capt. Clayton Andrews. Enchanted by Zoya, Andrews eventually brings her to Manhattan as his bride, never imagining the tragedies that will befall them both….

  1. I usually don’t read this genre, but I found this book many many years ago and read it. It is still in the top 3 of my all time favorites.
