This historical novel follows Marie, the fourteen year old ballerina who modelled for Degas’ famous Little Dancer. Set in the Paris

during the Belle Epoque, Marie and her family are navigating life under less than ideal circumstances. The narrative is refreshing as it

bounces back and forth between Marie and her sister Antoinette. This is a quick paced read that marries art, ballet, historical facts,

fiction, mystery, and murder.
