MARINA ENDICOTT PRESENTS

THE THREE GRACEFUL AVERY GIRLS

THE SISTER ACT TO TAKE VAUDEVILLE BY STORM

STARRING: AURORA, CLOVER and BELLA

As they set off on the road to fame and fortune, the Avery sisters join a cast of extraordinary and unforgettable characters - charming charlatans, unpredictable eccentrics, and some who seem ordinary but have magical gifts. Taking us behind the curtain and into their lives, THE LITTLE SHADOWS reveals how the art of vaudeville - in all its variety, madness, melodrama, hilarity and sorrow - echoes the art of life itself.

Review:

"A vivid coming of age tale about the beautiful Avery sisters, thrust on the vaudeville stage after their father's death. Set in early 20th-century Canada, it catapults the reader into the beating heart of the travelling theatrical world - the smell of the greasepaint, heat of the spotlights, and high-wire adrenaline are near-tangible. Thrilling and moving this is a glittering jewel of a novel." ( Easy Living)

"There are comforting echoes of both Little Women and Ballet Shoes in this gently absorbing novel about three middle-class sisters forced to support themselves on the American vaudeville circuit after the death of their father ... It's so atmospheric you'll want to throw flowers at the end." ( Daily Mail)

"The three Avery sisters ("The Belle Auroras," as they become known on the stage) begin with little in their favour besides youth and hope but each one slowly and steadily evolves into a unique and accomplished artist while navigating her way to adulthood among a cast of extraordinary charmers, charlatans, eccentrics and impresarios. Lauded by Margaret Atwood as "very high quality writing," Marina Endicott's novel delves into the world of Vaudeville theatre, in all its eccentricity." ( Stylist Magazine)

" The Little Shadows is a novel about art and women, and personal fulfilment and the thrill of performing... She has written an entertaining, moving and original work." ( The National Post)

" The Little Shadows has Endicott's wry sensibility, her pithy lyricism and her skill at pulling the rug out from under the reader's feet. Like the previous novel, this one also concerns itself with big ideas: the point of art, sisterly and familial love and, as the war's shadow extends and darkens, the meaning of life itself." ( The Globe and Mail)

Book Description:

A rich and moving novel about three sisters starting out in a vaudeville as the Great War looms
