We are incredibly excited to share the cover of Alli Sinclair’s upcoming release, Beneath the Parisian Skies, with our AusRom Today readers!
Alli’s debut novel, Luna Tango, was awarded the AusRom Today Reader’s Choice BOOK OF THE YEAR in 2014 (quite a feat for a debut novelist!) and we’ve been waiting ever-so-patiently (not really!) for Alli’s next novel so we cannot wait until this is released in July. In the meantime, enjoy this first look at the cover and blurb for Beneath the Parisian Skies.
Beneath the Parisian Skies
A sweeping saga about love, truth, grief and passion–and what it takes to fulfil a dream.
Ballerina Viktoriya Budian narrowly escapes Russia with her life. She arrives in Paris, determined to start fresh with the famed Ballets Russes but her newfound success is threatened when her past returns to haunt her. Forced to choose between love and fame, Viktoriya’s life spirals out of control and the decision she makes seriously affects the lives of many for years to come.
Paris, present day
Australian dancer Lily Johansson returns to Paris, the city that broke her heart and destroyed her ballet career, hoping to ease the guilt over her fiancé’s death and to make amends with her estranged sister Natalie, a ballerina with the Bohème Ballet.
Terrified of loving again, Lily nevertheless finds herself becoming entangled with talented composer Yves Rousseau. Lily has many reasons for keeping Yves at arm’s length but as he recounts the drama of the Ballets Russes in Paris, the magic of this Bohemian era ignites a spark within her.
Meanwhile, vying for the role honouring Ballets Russes dancer Viktoriya Budian, Lily’s sister Natalie develops an unhealthy obsession. Natalie’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, Lily fears for her sister’s safety and sanity. So when Natalie goes missing, she and Yves set out on a desperate quest across France to find her and, along the way, battle their own demons.
Could the search for her sister, lead Lily to realise that ballet—like love and life—should not be abandoned so easily?
