The Flames by Sophie Haydock

Synopsis

This is the story of four muses...

Women whose bodies were shown in intimate detail, depicted by the charming yet controversial artist Egon Schiele. But who were they?

ADELE: his passionate and fierce admirer.

GERTRUDE: his spirited and possessive sister.

VALLY: his independent and proud model.

EDITH: Adele's quiet and conventional sister. Or was she?

The Flames reimagines the intertwining lives of these women: four wild, blazing hearts, longing to be known. In an elegant bohemian city like 1900s Vienna, everything seems possible. But just as a flame has the power to mesmerize, it can also destroy everything in its path ...

Reviews

'Thought provoking and illuminating - I so enjoyed discovering the world and the women behind works of art I adore.' Kate Sawyer, author of The Stranding

'The four women who loved Schiele come back to life, combining an exquisite sense of place and era with a passion and sensuality that transcend time altogether.' Isabel Costello, author of Scent

'I knew nothing of Egon Schiele. I'm now obsessed, and heartbroken for all four women. An unforgettable book about wanting more for ourselves than we are told we are allowed.' Ericka Waller, author of Dog Days

'MAGNIFICENT. Feels destined to be a classic...I loved it and refuse to accept it is a debut. It's simply too good.' Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

'Completely convincing and utterly compelling, The Flames gives vivid voice to four muses who refuse to be remembered as just that.' Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies
