BOOK REVIEW: THE SEVEN SISTERS
If you are a regular reader of Love Niamh, you will know that Pan Macmillan sent me a book at the end of last year that I absolutely fell in love with – The Storm Sister (Click the link to read my review) which is the second book in the series by Lucinda Riley. I loved the book so much that I bought the first book in the series on Booktopia.
I started reading this on Australia Day on Redhead Beach. The first book in the series tells the story of Maia D’Apliese, the eldest of six sisters. The series will follow the six sisters who were all adopted and named for the stars of a constellation. After their father passes away, each of his adopted daughters receives a clue to their heritage – the co-ordinates on an Armillary Sphere. The Seven Sisters sees Maia travel to Brazil to discover her heritage and passions.
As with the second novel, The Storm Sister, Riley beautifully intertwines the stories of three different generations. Riley does an excellent job creating these characters and their story lines as I was thoroughly engrossed in the book. The story itself was complex and had beautifully constructed layers – Though it was long, I never felt like the story was too long or unnecessary.
The Seven Sisters has definitely left me with a lot of questions that I’m looking forward to finding the answers in the rest of the books. I can’t wait to find out more about Pa Salt and how he came to adopt 6 daughters and why, not to mention, the rest of the sisters individual stories.
I believe Lucinda Riley has a beautiful way with words and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
