Zoya by Danielle Steel

by Danielle Steel
Published in 1989

I read this book in early 90s. Last night, I watch the movie with Melisa Gilbert in it. My mother and I enjoyed watching it thoroughly.

In the Philippines, she's one of the most common authors that made it there. So, I made it a habbit to read her books whenver I see them. I especially like this book because it's both sad, and triumphant. I cried in many places. It touched my heart.

Zoya is a countess from Russia who had to move to France during the revolution. Her grandma kept her safe, and the rest of her family were slaughtered. From living in grand palaces to a tiny room in Paris, she kept her wonderful spirit. She has a happy love life, but they just don't last very long. Personally, I think it's Rasputin's curse.

Have you read this book? Wha did you think of it?


  1. That sounds interesting. I usually like Nora Roberts because of the fight those two had years ago about who was copying who, but I'll give this a try !

    Hope that you have a good weekend, Shosana !
