"--Provided by publisher., "There is but one Paris." -Vincent Van Gogh. Maud Heighton came to Lafond's famous Academie to paint, and to flee the constraints of her small English town. It took all her courage to escape, but Paris, she quickly realizes, is no place for a light purse. While her fellow students enjoy the dazzling decadence of the Belle Epoque, Maud slips into poverty. Quietly starving, and dreading another cold Paris winter, she stumbles upon an opportunity when Christian Morel engages her as a live-in companion to his beautiful young sister, Sylvie. Maud is overjoyed by her good fortune. With a clean room, hot meals, and an umbrella to keep her dry, she is able to hold her head high as she strolls the streets of Montmartre. No longer hostage to poverty and hunger, Maud can at last devote herself to her art. But all is not as it seems. Christian and Sylvie, Maud soon discovers, are not quite the darlings they pretend to be. Sylvie has a secret addiction to opium and Christian has an ominous air of intrigue. As this dark and powerful tale progresses, Maud is drawn further into the Morels' world of elegant deception. Their secrets become hers, and soon she is caught in a scheme of betrayal and revenge that will plunge her into the darkness that waits beneath this glittering city of light., (OCoLC)896359333, 1 online resource (1 audio file (11hr., 20 min.)) :digital., 1016800, 1039010, 11810459Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 1250051835, 1410477630 (hardcover), 1427251967 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 1503, 2014026998, 2014044947, 33021025156560lpLP FIC HISTORY ROBERTSONwf1574552lp, 33021026810165afichisFIC HISTORY ROBERTSONwf1513926af, 360 pages ;25 cm, 823/.92, 9781250051837 (hardcover : acid-free paper), 9781410477637 (hardcover), 9781427251961 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), BYVA, British painter Maud Heighton, seduced by the elegance and luxury of Paris at the height of the Belle Époque, is unknowingly caught in a web of deception and revenge when Christian Morel hires her as a live-in companion to his sister, Sylvie., C0BYV, DLCengDLCrdaNjBwBT, DLCengrdaDLCOCLCOBYV, Digital content provided by hoopla., FIC HISTORY ROBERTSON, FIC014000FIC022060, FICTION / Historical, FICTION / Historical., FICTION / Mystery & Detective / Historical, FICTION / Mystery & Detective / Historical., First U.S. edition., Historical fiction., LP FIC HISTORY ROBERTSON, Large print edition., Large type books., MWT11810459, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :St. Martin's Press,2014., Night, Rebecca,narrator., PR6118.O2376P37 2014, PR6118.O2376P37 2015, Paris (France), Psychological fiction., Read by Rebecca Night., Robertson, Imogen, 1973-Paris winterLondon : Headline Review, 2013, Robertson, Imogen,1973-, Robertson, Imogen,1973-author., The Paris winter :a novel /Imogen Robertson., The Paris winter :a novelImogen Robertson., The Paris winterby Imogen Robertson., Thorndike Press large print core, Unabridged., Waterville, Maine :Thorndike Press,2015., Young women, [United States]:Macmillan Audio ,2014., computerc, data file, digital, e-fr---, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/mcm_9781427251961_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, pages ; cm., pcc, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume, ©2013
