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...

A sweeping and spellbinding love story spanning the warm waters of the Mediterranean to the cold, clear skies of Norway—the second in an epic new series of novels by #1 internationally bestselling author Lucinda Riley.

Ally D’Aplièse is about to compete in one of the world’s most perilous yacht races when she hears the news of her adoptive father’s sudden, mysterious death. Rushing back to meet her five sisters at their family home, she discovers that her father—an elusive billionaire affectionately known to his daughters as Pa Salt—has left each of them a tantalizing clue to their true heritage.

But the timing couldn’t be worse: Ally had only recently fallen into a new and deeply passionate love affair, but with her life now turned upside down, she decides to leave the open seas and follow the trail that her father left her, which leads her to the icy beauty of Norway…

There, Ally begins to discover her roots and how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived over a century before and sang in the first performance of Grieg’s iconic music set to Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt. As Ally learns more about Anna, she also begins to question who her father, Pa Salt, really was—and why is the seventh sister missing?

Following the internationally bestselling novel The Seven Sisters, this novel, “full of drama and romance” (Daily Mail), continues Lucinda Riley’s spellbinding series inspired by the mythology surrounding the famous star constellation.
