Amazon Review

For more than a decade, young Danina Petroskova has known no life but that of the ballet and her mentor Madame Markova. When a deathly illness steals her from the stage, the young dancer is inconsolable, and, desperate to speed her recovery, Madame Markova agrees to hand Danina over to the talented Dr. Nikolai Obrajensky for treatment. Convalescing with the Romanovs at the Tsarskoe Selo palace, Danina learns to live in and love the world beyond the ballet. And while grateful for Nikolai's companionship, she is startled by the intense emotions growing inside her for the married doctor. Drawn to Danina, Nikolai cannot ignore the passion between them either, and the strength of their love quickly overpowers their resistance. Soon Madame Markova and Nikolai's wife remind them of their previous obligations, and as the Revolution hovers on the horizon, the two must make a decision that will change their lives forever.

As if a romance set in the twilight years of Czarist Russia doesn't have enough intrinsic pathos, Danielle Steel takes great care to give her hero and heroine the bittersweet combination of incomparable virtue and external duties. When the young prima ballerina and the married doctor meet, they are drawn to the corresponding sense of integrity and duty in each other. However, when love and duty conflict, the struggle is never easy.

Maestro Steel knows where the heartstrings are, and she plays them with her reliable talents. While students of history may cringe at the simplified approach to the historical period, readers just looking for a good time have found it. With the tough-but-loving mother figure, the ill-but- lovable Prince Alexander, the borrowed ball gowns and the emotional grand jeté, this book has everything a TV movie needs except a small, cuddly pet. Put your feet up, set aside your spoilsport logic and enjoy this novel for what it is: a classic romance. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien --This text refers to the Digital Download edition.

Danielle Steel has written a fairly short novel concerning five children, Gabrielle (Gabby),Izzie,Billy,Andy and Sean. They obtain places at the high profile Atwood school in San Francisco. They start kindergarten on the same day and immediately find there is a chemistry between them that lasts throughout this school, high school and beyond. They call themselves the Big Five. All ambitious and bright. All with parenteral pressure and care. This is a story of a binding genuine friendship and relationship even when changes occur as they become older and diversify their interests. This is, however, also a story involving their parents and siblings as their circumstances affect the five friends. These throw up unexpected or inevitable developments. No spoilers other than to say it is an excellently written novel with sharply observant, witty dialogue, rapidly changing situations with a knock-on effect on the protagonists. These are profound. Real world situations compounded in a family and friendly scenario. Sometimes funny, many times sad. Beautifully constructed. Wonderful.
