The year was 1902. A new century was dawning as a motherless girl arrived at a ballet school in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the age of seven. By age seventeen, Danina Petroskova had become a great ballerina, a favorite of the Czar and Czarina, who welcomed her into the heart of the Imperial family. But events both near and far away shook the ground upon which she danced. A war, an extraordinary man, and a devastating illness altered the course of her life. And when revolution shattered Russia, Danina Petroskova was forced to make a heartbreaking choice - as the world around her was about to change forever.

enjoyed every word and the book was an inspiration to all ballet dancers. I would read this again.
It was a short novel and was very interesting. I enjoyed it as a contrast to Danielle Steel Romance.
