Von den verborgenen Geheimnissen eines englischen Herrenhauses zu der Pracht indischer Paläste

Innerlich aufgelöst kommt die junge amerikanische Schauspielerin Rebecca Bradley im englischen Dartmoor an, wo ein altes Herrenhaus als Kulisse für einen Film dient, der in den 1920er Jahren spielt. Vor ihrer Abreise hat die Nachricht von Rebeccas angeblicher Verlobung eine Hetzjagd der Medien auf die junge Frau ausgelöst, doch in der Abgeschiedenheit von Astbury Hall kommt Rebecca allmählich zur Ruhe. Als sie jedoch erkennt, dass sie Lady Violet, der Großmutter des Hausherrn Lord Astbury, frappierend ähnlich sieht, ist ihre Neugier geweckt.
Dann taucht Ari Malik auf: ein junger Inder, den das Vermächtnis seiner Urgroßmutter Anahita nach Astbury Hall geführt hat. Je mehr Rebecca aber in die Vergangenheit und in ihre Rolle eintaucht, beginnen Realität und Fiktion zu verwischen – und schließlich kommt sie nicht nur Anahitas Geschichte auf die Spur, sondern auch dem dunklen Geheimnis, das wie ein Fluch über der Dynastie der Astburys zu liegen scheint...

The first book in a series from #1 internationally bestselling author Lucinda Riley, author of The Midnight Rose—hailed as “an extraordinary story [and] a complex, deeply engaging tale filled with fascinating characters” (Library Journal).

Maia D’Apliese 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, who adopted them all as babies, has died. Each sister is handed a tantalizing clue to her true heritage—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 Bonifacio’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. 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 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—Lucinda Riley showcases her storytelling talents like never before.
