Hi everyone. *waves hello* Today, Treasured Tales for Young Adults is featuring a new young adult novel recently published by Pan Macmillan Australia – The Heiresses by Allison Rushby.
The Heiresses by Allison Rushby
Seventeen-year-olds Thalia, Erato and Clio are summoned to glittering 1926 London by Hestia, an aunt they never knew they had. They are shocked to discover they were separated at birth and are in fact triplets and the rightful heiresses to their deceased mother’s fortune. All they need to do is find a way to claim the inheritance from their greedy half brother, Charles.
The sisters move to Hestia’s house in Belgrave Square to begin their new lives. But amid the confusion of new romances and money, they each struggle to find their way. Thalia knows she can never return home to her dark past; Erato’s dreams threaten to slip from her grasp; and Clio must save the only mother she has ever known.
As the battle for their shared fortune grows more complex, the girls realize that they can’t trust anyone – least of all each other.
A thrillingly addictive saga of love, betrayal, money and intrigue.
Author bio (from Pan Macmillan Australia):
Having failed at becoming a ballerina with pierced ears (her childhood dream), Allison Rushby instead began a writing career as a journalism student at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Within a few months she slunk sideways into studying Russian, began writing her first novel and, most importantly, joined the Chocolate Appreciation Society.
Over the past ten years, she has published five books for young adult readers and five for adult readers in the women’s fiction genre. She is originally from Brisbane, Australia, but spent 2011 and most of 2012 living in Cambridge, UK, where she mainly spent her day’s whingeing constantly about the weather.
