Simultaneously a story of initiation, a thriller, and a love story, Sophie’s Playlist – The Gramble Chronicles I takes the reader with a beating drum on a voyage through time and space from the 70s to the 90s and the present, between Paris and Miami with stops in Tokyo, Singapore, and even in Purgatory as described by Dante.
The book is set against the background of crossed destinies of a pair of identical twins, Sophie and Adele, and those of three cousins Gramble, Samuel, and Stephen. It deals with the quest for self-identity while also looking at love in all its forms (romantic, sensual, filial, and platonic) and is full of both suspense and sensuality.
Soundtracks are available on Spotify and Deezer so that the reader can listen to the music and feel a stronger connection to the narrative.
