Description

Maia D'Apliese and her five sisters gather together at their childhood home, "Atlantis"-a fabulous, secluded castle that their beloved father, the elusive billionaire they call Pa Salt, has died. Maia and her sister 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 Eqopue 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 cafes of Montparnasse, she meet ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly, and knows to one 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.

        September 15, 2015

        After learning her larger-than-life adoptive father has died, Maia D'Apliese, the oldest of six adopted sisters, departs for Rio de Janeiro, following subtle clues her father has left for her about how she came to be adopted and why her mother gave her up. In Brazil, Maia finds her formal and dismissive biological grandmother and, through letters, discovers how her great-grandmother and the woman's French lover became involved through the construction of Cristo Redentor, the statue of Christ atop Rio's Corcovado mountain. Narrator Emily Lucienne has a pleasant British accent, and when she's voicing the sisters, slight distinctions keep each voice separate. However, she misses some Portuguese pronunciations and mistakenly throws in a Spanish translation for a few terms. Some listeners might notice this and be thrown out of the story. Still, if the author is able to carry on this level of historical expertise throughout, for each sister's book, this will be an enjoyable series indeed. VERDICT Recommended for historical fiction listeners, especially those with a soft spot for South American settings. ["The poignant love story is the meat of this charming tale, so the book will please fans of romance as well as historical fiction lovers": LJ 4/1/15 review of the Atria hc.]--Laura Brosie, Wentzville, MO
