“Buchanan has created an entire world for Marie and her elder sister Antoinette, sketched in rich detail and teeming with suspense. . . . [a] cinematic read that is hard to put down, destined to be hotly debated book-club fodder across the country.” —The Globe and Mail
"Deeply moving and inventive . . . Buchanan's evocative portrait of 19th-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 the gutters of Belle Epoque Paris.” —Entertainment Weekly--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
