The Painted Girls: A Novel

Inspired by the real hardscrabble lives of a set of Parisian sisters, this story begins in 1878 as the Van Goethem children are mourning the death of their father and the boozy antics of their absinthe-loving mother. Antoinette, the oldest, is a sharp-tongued but soft-hearted actress who is drawn into the City of Light’s seedy underworld by a dodgy fellow actor. Her talented younger sister, Marie, is making her way up the ranks of the famed Paris ballet, but finds herself distracted by a side job as the half-dressed muse of a crabby artist. Family bonds are tested—and nearly broken—by murder, romance, betrayal and desperation, but ultimately, the greatest survival instinct may be keeping the faith and sticking by your sister.
