A spellbinding story about two gifted orphans –  in love with each other since they can remember – whose childhood talents allow them to rewrite their future.

The Lonely Hearts Hotel is a love story with the power of legend. An unparalleled tale of charismatic pianos, invisible dance partners, radicalized chorus girls, drug-addicted musicians, brooding clowns, and an underworld whose economy hinges on the price of a kiss. In a landscape like this, it takes great creative gifts to thwart one’s origins. It might also take true love.
Two babies are abandoned in a Montreal orphanage in the winter of 1914. Before long, their talents emerge: Pierrot is a piano prodigy; Rose lights up even the dreariest room with her dancing and comedy. As they travel around the city performing clown routines, the children fall in love with each other and dream up a plan for the most extraordinary and seductive circus show the world has ever seen.
Separated as teenagers, sent off to work as servants during the Great Depression, both descend into the city’s underworld, dabbling in sex, drugs and theft in order to survive. But when Rose and Pierrot finally reunite beneath the snowflakes – after years of searching and desperate poverty – the possibilities of their childhood dreams are renewed, and they’ll go to extreme lengths to make them come true. Soon, Rose, Pierrot and their troupe of clowns and chorus girls have hit New York, commanding the stage as well as the alleys, and neither the theater nor the underworld will ever look the same.

Mir hat das Cover einfach extrem gut gefallen, als ich vor ein paar Wochen durch Zufall drübergestolpert bin - das ist schon der ganze Grund

Für welches Cover hast du dich heute entschieden?


  1. Liebe Franzy, da bin ich aber sehr gespannt. Ich lese viele Bücher auf englisch. Dieser Klappentext spricht mich ebenfalls an, nicht nur das Cover. Ich warte auf Deine Rezension ...

  2. Huhu! :)

    Dieses Cover ist wirklich ein Hingucker! Total schön, wie die Schrift gestaltet und die Farben gewählt wurden. Der Klappentext hat mich allerdings nicht so recht packen können.
