#bookreview – The Storm Sister – by Lucinda Riley

Another winner in The Seven Sisters series. Awarded four stars on Goodreads.

stormsister#2 in Lucinda Riley’s planned 7 volume series about six adopted sisters, where each novel is the story of one sister’s search for her biological origins.

In this one, flute-playing professional sailor Ally finds love, loses love, explores roots, and uncovers some of her own musical family connections. Most of the story takes place in Norway, with ties to a play written by Henrik Ibsen, for which Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg composed music — Peer Gynt. In addition to Ally’s story, Riley also tells a related love story from Germany in the late 1930s — so you can imagine that story doesn’t end well.

Part historical fiction, part mystery, and part the pure creation of Riley’s fertile imagination — it’s a fun read, though the prose is a little hit-you-over-the-head obvious in a few places. I definitely plan to continue with the series.
