Description

Maia D'Apliése and her five sisters gather together at their childhood home, 'Atlantis'-a fabulous, secluded castle situated on the shores of Lake Geneva-having been told that their beloved father, the elusive billionaire they call Pa Salt, has died. Maia and her sisters were all adopted by him as babies and, discovering he has already been buried at sea, each of them is handed a tantalizing clue to their true heritage-a clue which takes Maia across the world to a crumbling mansion in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Once there, she begins to put together the pieces of where her story began …Eighty years earlier, in the Belle Epoque of Rio, 1927, Izabela Bonifacio's father has aspirations for his daughter to marry into aristocracy. Meanwhile, architect Heitor da Silva Costa is working on a statue, to be called Christ the Redeemer, and will soon travel to Paris to find the right sculptor to complete his vision. Izabela-passionate and longing to see the world-convinces her father to allow her to accompany him and his family to Europe before she is married. There, at Paul Landowski's studio and in the heady, vibrant cafés 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 loss-the first in a unique, spellbinding series of seven books, based on the legends of the Seven Sisters star constellation-Lucinda Riley showcases her storytelling talent like never before.
