Ten-year-old French singer Nicolas de Beaulieu seems to have it all in the rigours and depression of the 1930s: money, social status, fame. But as he grows up, he becomes no stranger to grief and loss.

About the Author
This passion was ignited from her own heritage, combined with a lifelong love of historical fiction writing, particularly those of a similar ilk to Georgette Heyer.
This is where inspiration for the Master of Illusion series was born.
Anne Rouen is the alter ego of Lynn Newberry: a country woman from the New South Wales New England region, who breeds Brangus cattle by day and is a dedicated, passionate horsewoman.
The lady behind Anne Rouen has completed a specialist teaching degree in the Rural Sciences department of the University of New England, and has spent most of her years involved in the agricultural industry-twenty of them as an educator.
Throughout her career, Lynn has escaped the everyday demands of work through the hand of Anne Rouen. Master of Illusion-Book One was her first published novel, and it, along with its sequels, Master of Illusion-Book Two and Angel of Song have been nominated in several award programs, most notably, the Global Ebook Awards where Anne won the Silver Medal for Modern Historical Literature Fiction in 2014 and the Bronze Medal for Modern Historical Literature Fiction in 2016.
Lynn has also seen success with her short story writing, achieving a Highly Commended in the Rolf Boldrewood Literary Awards (2011) for The Scent of a Criminal.
With a broad range of interests, Anne Rouen writes a regular blog where she chats about her firsthand experience beating breast cancer, her love of horses and other current issues that are close to her heart.
