Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov were celebrated Russian skating partners who teamed up as kids and then fell in love and married. At the peak of their career in 1995, Sergei suddenly died of a heart attack. In this (probably ghost written)book, Katia tells of a storybook romance, then how she has struggled to build a life for herself and thier daughter while mustering the courage to skate alone.

Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov were gold medal pairs figure skaters from Russia. This story goes through the initial pairing up at age 11 for Katia until more recent times.

The training and rigorous regimen required by their coaches for their amateur careers was impressive. Beside the talent and obvious attachment this must of helped them win their medals. Katia also describes the slow growing of their love and eventually marriage and the birth of their daughter.

Their move to the United States and their move to the 'professionals' and the life of the ice shows are all described.

In 1995, Sergei died of a heart attack and Katia is devastated. How she copes both on and off the ice and how she builds a life for herself and her daughter as a single parent shows her courage.

This book has some pictures which are great to look at. Ekaterina is not the best of writers but is very frank almost to the point of making the reader think she is without emotion at times.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer on September 17, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books. She had marked this book as available to be passed along to someone else.

I will be releasing this in my mom's memory.
