ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Bellissima eppure timida e solitaria, Maia è l'unica delle sue sorelle ad abitare ancora con il padre ad Atlantis, lo splendido castello sul lago di Ginevra. Ma proprio mentre si trova a Londra da un'amica, giunge improvvisa la telefonata della governante. Pa' Salt è morto. Quel padre generoso e carismatico, che le ha adottate da bambine raccogliendole da ogni angolo del mondo e dando a ciascuna il nome di una stella, era un uomo di cui nessuno, nemmeno il suo avvocato e amico di sempre, conosceva il passato. Rientrate precipitosamente nella villa, le sorelle scoprono il singolare testamento: una sfera armillare, i cui anelli recano incise alcune coordinate misteriose. Maia sarà la prima a volerle decifrare e a trovare il coraggio di partire alla ricerca delle sue origini. Un viaggio che la porterà nel cuore pulsante di Rio de Janeiro, dove un vecchio plico di lettere le farà rivivere l'emozionante storia della sua antenata Izabela, di cui ha ereditato l'incantevole bellezza. Con l'aiuto dell'affascinante scrittore Floriano, Maia riporterà alla luce il segreto di un amore sbocciato nella Parigi bohémienne degli anni '20, inestricabilmente legato alla costruzione della statua del Cristo che torreggia maestosa su Rio. Una vicenda destinata a stravolgere la vita di Maia. "Le Sette Sorelle" è il primo episodio della saga delle Sette Sorelle.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Their future is written in the stars... The beautiful recluse who must learn to love again – set in La Belle Epoque of 1920’s Rio and Paris, and present-day Lake Geneva. Maia D’Aplièse 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 tantalising clue to their true heritage – a clue which 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 again. "The Seven Sisters" is a 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.
