A celebration of the cabaret era and the magical

The orphaned daughter of a
cabaret performer, Lilly Aphrodite finds refuge at a Catholic orphanage—and a

star, and enters into a sweeping romance that, crossing decades and continents,
becomes inextricable from the astonishing historical events unfolding around it. Download and start listening now!
