I do n't expect but I find som of her novels so realistic and believable ... In his case, our main character a young countess Zoya lives a pleasant life with her family in St. Petersburg.

She turns up in Paris but as a countess she does n't know hard work.

You certainl know what 's oing to happen next and … Well, it kept me on the edge of my seat.

At any rate, if you do n't normally like Danielle Steel, this one would be different for you.
