Wikipedia in English None. No library descriptions found. I loved the way it started with Ganny Dan's grandaughter talking at the beginning, then the story was told, with the grandaughter talking again about Granny Dan at the end. The story was both sweet and sad, yet ending well. It made me think of my own grandmother who also came to America from Russia about the same, and the stories my mother told me that her mother told her. I will listen to it over and over again.

Great for the commuters! This book is shorter than most DS books, but it is an excellent read. It is very interesting and hard to put down after the first 5 pages. I highly recommend it. When you are reading this book, you forget what time it is so beware.

It's hard to put down. From Amazon I absolutely loved this book.
See a Problem?
I have read most of Danielle Steel's books and I always enjoy them but this is by far one of the best she has written so far. It is a story of love found and fought for during a very difficult historical period in Russia. I laughed with Danina, smiled with each character, felt the excitement, and cried through each tragedy as if I was there.
It brought to my mind so many thoughts of my own grandparents and others that have come before. It was riveting! Written by Danielle Steele at age 12? From Amazon Surely this book wasn't written by an adult??? Horrible waste of time, waste of money, and waste of a supposedly talented writer!
