Publisher's Summary

Maia D'Apliése 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, the elusive billionaire they call Pa Salt, has died. Maia and her sisters 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 that 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 Epoque 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 cafés of Montparnasse, she meets ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly and knows at once that her life will never be the same.
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.

4 Generations of Mystery and Love

This is the first book in a series that is about 6 sisters that were all adopted by an influential and mysterious man. This book focuses on the oldest daughter, Maia, who travels on a journey to find her heritage and ultimately finds unexpected clues to her family's past. It is a story that spans 4 generations and is a complex, deeply moving tale of love lost and found.

This is a wonderful story and is worth a credit if you want a nice change of pace from other historical romances.

Predictable, stereotypes characters, banal main character

My subject heading says it all. It wasn't even a good enough story to get lost in the ease of a predictable tale. I never could figure out why the main love interests ever really liked each other. Especially Isabelle. Why did dude man like her? She was so not interesting. She did nothing, she never said anything interesting, she was just pretty. Blah.
