Product Details


“A captivating story of fate, tarnished ambition, and the ultimate triumph of sister-love.” —The Washington Post

“Deeply moving and inventive… Buchanan’s evocative portrait of nineteenth-century Paris brings to life its sights, sounds, and smells, along with the ballet hall where dancers hunger for a place in the corps… But nothing is more real or gripping than the emotions of Marie and her older sister Antoinette… Their tale is ultimately a tribute to the beauty of sisterly love.” —People

“The ethereal ballerina from Degas’s famed sculpture Little Dancer Aged Fourteen comes to life in this richly imagined novel. Amid the glamour of tutus and art emerges a surprisingly gritty story of survival in teh gutter of Belle Epoque Paris.” —Entertainment Weekly
