The first book in a major new series from #1 internationally
bestselling author Lucinda Riley, author of The Midnight
Roseâ€”hailed as â€śan extraordinary story [and] a complex,
deeply engaging tale filled with fascinating charactersâ€ť
Maia Dâ€™Apliese and her five sisters gather together at their
childhood home, â€śAtlantisâ€ťâ€”a fabulous, secluded castle
situated on the shores of Lake Genevaâ€”having been told that
their beloved father, who adopted them all as babies, has
died. Each sister is handed a tantalizing clue to her true
heritageâ€”a clue that takes Maia across the world to a
crumbling mansion in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Once there, she
begins to put together the pieces of her story.
Eighty years earlier in the Rio of the 1920s, Izabela
Bonifacioâ€™s father has aspirations for his daughter to marry
into the aristocracy. Meanwhile, architect Heitor da Silva
Costa is devising plans for an enormous statue, to be called
Christ the Redeemer, and will soon travel to Paris to
find the right sculptor to complete his vision.
Izabelaâ€”passionate and longing to see the worldâ€”convinces
her father to allow her to accompany him and his family to
Europe before she is married. There, at Paul Landowskiâ€™s
studio and in the heady, vibrant cafes of Montparnasse, she
meets ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly, and knows
at once that her life will never be the same again.
In this sweeping, epic tale of love and lossâ€”the first in a
unique, spellbinding new seriesâ€”Lucinda Riley showcases her
storytelling talents like never before.
