The Painted GirlsAudiobook CD - 2013
Paris, 1878. After the death of their father, the three Van Goethem sisters find their lives upended. With few options available for income, bookish fourteen-year-old Marie and her younger sister Charlotte are dispatched to the Paris Opera, where they will be trained to enter its famous ballet, while insolent seventeen-year-old Antoinette finds herself launched into the orbit of Émile Zola--and into the arms of a young man who may be a murderer. Marie throws herself into dance, relying on her natural gift and hard work, but the competition is too fierce. She soon finds herself modeling in the studio of Edgar Degas, where her image will forever be immortalized in his controversial sculpture Little Dancer, Aged 14. Meanwhile, Antoinette descends lower and lower in society and must make the choice between honest labor and the more profitable avenues available to a young woman in the Paris demimonde--unless her love for the dangerous Émile Abadie derails her completely.
