March Book Club: The Invitation by Belinda Alexandra

March Book Club: The Invitation by Belinda Alexandra

We’re super excited about this next Book Club, and we think you’re going to love it. This month we’ll be reading and talking about The Invitation by Belinda Alexandra.

The Invitation is a tale of two sisters, set against the backdrop of Paris and New York. Marking a slight change in direction for Belinda Alexandra, The Invitation, while having the exotic locations and rich historical details her readers enjoy, is more a story of intense relationships between sisters and mother and daughter, than a saga.

                      Synopsis

                      In Gilded Age New York, money buys everything. What is your price?Sometimes the ties that bind are the most dangerous of all ...Paris, 1899. Emma Lacasse has been estranged from her older sister for nearly twenty years, since Caroline married a wealthy American and left France. So when Emma receives a request from Caroline to meet her, she is intrigued. Caroline invites Emma to visit her in New York, on one condition: Emma must tutor her shy, young niece, Isadora, and help her prepare for her society debut.Caroline lives a life of unimaginable excess and opulence as one of New York's Gilded Age millionaires and Emma is soon immersed in a world of luxury beyond her wildest dreams - a far cry from her bohemian lifestyle as a harpist and writer with her lover, Claude, in Montmartre.Emma hopes for an emotional reunion with her only family, but instead she finds herself in the vice-like grip of her charismatic and manipulative sister, who revels in the machinations of the ultra rich. As Emma begins to question her sister's true motives, a disaster strikes, and New York society is stripped bare - beneath the glittering exterior lies a seething nest of deceit, betrayal, moral corruption ... and perhaps even murder.From the bestselling author of Tuscan Rose comes a mesmerising tale of two sisters and the dangers and seductions of excess.
