              Elaine Grey is a gentle young woman, full of generosity, kindness, and determination. Though her father died when she was young, the strong women in her life support her and inspire her: her mother, her governess, and her wealthy sponsor - Lady Jayne Vining. Elaine's hope is to s...tudy medicine, nearly an impossibility in Victorian England. Then, when she is orphaned, and loses Lady Jayne as well, her hope grinds to a halt. She has no choice than to serve as governess to Lady Jayne's granddaughters: Rose and Violet. Shortly after Elaine moves in with their family, Rose and Violet become ill with a mysterious disease. VICTORIAN SNOWFLAKES is another young adult fiction by Elaine DePrince, author of FUER ELISE: The Story of My Lives, and co-author of the memoir, TAKING FLIGHT: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina.

              Michaela DePrince was known as girl no. 27 at the orphanage, where she was abandoned at a young age and tormented as a devil child for a skin condition that makes her skin appear spotted.

At the age of four, Michaela was adopted by an American family, who encouraged her love of dancing and enrolled her in classes.

In this engaging, moving, and unforgettable memoir, Michaela shares her dramatic journey from an orphan in West Africa to becoming one of ballet's most exciting rising stars.
