She was the cherished grandmother who sang songs in Russian, loved to roller-skate, and spoke little of her past. But when Granny Dan died, all that remained was a box wrapped in brown paper, tied with string. Inside, an old pair of satin toe shoes, a gold locket, and a stack of letters tied with ribbon. It was her legacy, her secret past, waiting to be discovered by the granddaughter who loved her but never really knew her. It was a story waiting to be told... 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.

Nicht so toll...

Dies ist ein eher schwaches Buch. Die Charaktere sind dünn und die Geschichte wirkt daher nicht richtig. Das Russland der späten Zarenzeit und der Revolution, die Welt des klassischen Balletts werden nicht lebendig. DS sollte bleiben wo sie sich auskennt: in Amerika.
