From the author of A Northern Light and The Tea Rose comes another sweeping work of historical fiction. Andi, a senior at a prestigious Brooklyn high school, is suffering in the aftermath of her brother’s death, her mother’s breakdown, and her father’s absence; music is the only thing that matters to her. When her father checks her mother into an institution and drags Andi to Paris with him over winter break, she is furious – but then she discovers the journal of Alexandrine, who lived during the French Revolution, and becomes caught up in her story. This entangling of past and present is common enough in historical novels, but Donnelly creates a wholly original, unpredictable work – a page-turner for teens and adults alike.
