Der Wind und das Wasser, das sind die großen Leidenschaften in Allys Leben, die sie zu ihrem Beruf gemacht hat: Sie ist Seglerin und hat bei manch riskanter Regatta auf den Meeren der Welt ihren Mut unter Beweis gestellt. Eines Tages aber stirbt völlig überraschend ihr geliebter Vater Pa Salt, und Ally reist zu dem Familiensitz am Genfer See. Wie auch ihre fünf Schwestern wurde sie als kleines Mädchen von Pa Salt adoptiert und kennt ihre wahren Wurzeln nicht. Ihr Vater hinterlässt ihr aber einen rätselhaften Hinweis auf ihre Vorgeschichte – die Biographie eines norwegischen Komponisten aus dem 19. Jahrhundert, in dessen Leben die junge Sängerin Anna Landvik eine schicksalhafte Rolle spielte. Allys Neugier ist geweckt, und sie begibt sich auf Spurensuche in das raue Land im Norden. Sofort ist sie zutiefst fasziniert von der wilden Schönheit der Landschaft, aber auch von der betörenden Welt der Musik, die sich ihr dort eröffnet. Und als sie schließlich dem Violonisten Thom begegnet, der ihr auf unerklärliche Weise vertraut ist, fängt sie an zu ahnen, dass ihre jugendliche Liebe zur Musik kein Zufall war...

The first book in a major new 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 new series—Lucinda Riley showcases her storytelling talents like never before.
