To Capture What We Cannot Keep

To Capture What We Cannot Keep

Author: Beatrice Colin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/08/2017

In February 1887, Caitriona Wallace and Emile Nouguier meet in a hot air balloon, floating high above Paris - a moment of pure possibility. But back on firm ground, their vastly different social strata become clear. Cait is a widow who because of her precarious financial situation is forced to chaperone two wealthy Scottish charges. Emile is expected to take on the bourgeois stability of his family's business and choose a suitable wife. As the Eiffel Tower rises, a marvel of steel and air and light, the subject of extreme controversy and a symbol of the future, Cait and Emile must decide what their love is worth. Seamlessly weaving historical detail and vivid invention, Beatrice Colin evokes the revolutionary time in which Cait and Emile live - one of corsets and secret trysts, duels and Bohemian independence, strict tradition and Impressionist experimentation. To Capture What We Cannot Keep, stylish, provocative and shimmering, raises probing questions about a woman's place in that world, the overarching reach of class distinctions and the sacrifices love requires of us all.

Glimmer Palace

Glimmer Palace

Author: Beatrice Colin Format: eBook Release Date: 05/08/2008

The debauched celebration of the cabaret era. The magical ascent of cinema. The deprivations of World War I and the buildup to World War II. Set against the rise and fall of Berlin and the innovations in art that accompanied it, The Glimmer Palace brilliantly weaves together the story of one orphan girl's remarkable journey, from poverty to film stardom, with an illuminating account of an astonishing history. As the clock chimes the turn of the twentieth century, Lilly Nelly Aphrodite takes her first breath. The illegitimate, soon orphaned daughter of a cabaret performer, she lands at a Catholic orphanage where she finds refuge and the first in a string of friendships that will change the direction of her life. When fellow orphan Hanne takes Lilly beyond their stone-walled confines, introducing her to the seedy glamour of Berlin's notorious nightlife, Lilly's trajectory of reinvention begins. From urchin to maid, teenage war bride, tingle-tangle bar girl, model, and script typist, Lilly is eventually transformed into one of Germany's leading film stars and a partner in a remarkable love story that will span decades and continentsand be inextricable from the history unfolding around it. The tale of an extraordinary heroine living in an extraordinary time, THE GLIMMER PALACE is vivid in its telling, and intelligent and ambitious in its scope.
