    When I began reading The Seven Sisters I had no idea it was to be part of a serieswhich is goodd bad.This first book is not the story of seven sisters, but just one of six adopted female babies who grow up as privileged children (named for constellations) at an amazing island home in Switzerland called Atlantisd when Pa Salt dies, each of the six grown women are given a private letter with a secret clue to their past.Maia, an astoundingly beautiful interpreter, who translates books for authors i [...]

    Lo interesante de descubrir a un nuevo autor es que no sabes por dónde te va a sorprender. En este caso no puedo negar que me esperaba otro tipo de historia -ni yo misma sé cual-, y que no he logrado 'fundirme' con ella; no sé, es como si sólo fueran palabras sin alma Pero no descarto la posibilidad de volver a leer algo más de esta escritora :)

    Absolutely, loved this novel. Riley did a wonderful job of integrating past and present stories, making every character authentic and believable. I am really excited this is the first in a series and that this story is just beginning. LR is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. 5 stars.

    “Remember, even if we can’t see them, those we love are always with us”----Lucinda RileyLucinda Riley, an Irish international best-selling author, have spun a terrific and absolutely stunning saga of six sisters in an all new series of The Seven Sisters. The Seven Sisters is the first book and the story of first/eldest sister, Maia. This is her journey to search for her roots after her adoptive father's death.Synopsis: Maia D'Apliése and her five sisters gather together at their childhood [...]

    Ένα βιβλίο το οποίο αγαπιέται από πολλούς. Ένα βιβλίο που για τα κορίτσια φαίνεται λαχταριστό, μεγάλο, χορταστικό, με πανέμορφο εξώφυλλο και ενδιαφέρουσα υπόθεση στο εξώφυλλο. Εγώ το μόνο που μπορώ να πω είναι ότι… προσπάθησα. Ειλικρινά προσπάθησα, αλλά η αφήγηση είναι τόσ [...]

    Wellwellwell.what an enjoyable ride this was. Lucinda Riley managed to keep me fully engrossed in this tale of the oldest sister, Maia. I loved how the clues were managed and, most importantly, that this series will only rely on telling each sister's story separately. Therefore, you really get to know where each one came from, their past and present story. This one focused on Maia and great-grandmother, Bel. How I loved Bel and her destiny. Her story was a pleasure and, also, painful to hear but [...]

    Dual review with Swedish first and then English!SWEDISH REVIEWJag har verkligen sett fram emot att läsa denna serie. Jag har tidigare läst två böcker av Lucinda Riley varav en från denna serie (på engelska) och jag har verkligen längtat att få läsa den första boken. Att få följa den äldsta systern, Maia, på hennes färd att få reda på sitt förflutna. Jag älskar verkligen böcker med två olika parallella handlingar, en nutida och en dåtida och jag blev verkligen betagen i båd [...]

    4.5 - Now was the time to discover who I was. Where I came from. And where I belonged. Stars!The Seven Sisters is a book that you will struggle to put down once you start reading. The co-ordinates on an Armillary Sphere set off a chain of events, which send Maia D’aplise on an adventure of a life time.Set in the present (2007) the story is begins on Lake Geneva, in Switzerland where Maia and her sisters; Ally, Star, Cece, Tiggy and Electra all meet up at the family home for the reading off the [...]

    Dünyanın dört bir yanından altı kızın evlat edinilmesi ile başlıyor Yedi Kız Kardeş. Onları evlat edinen Salt Baba'nın ölümü üzerine bütün kardeşler bir araya geliyor. Ve Salt Baba'nın vasiyeti açıklanıyor. Onlara hepsini evlat edinildikleri topraklara götürecek ipuçları bırakıyor. Bu kitapta Maia'nın peşine düştüğü geçmişini ve acılarla dolu inanılmaz bir aşkı okuyoruz. Maia benim çok sevdiğim bir karakter oldu. Kitapta en çok Maia ve Ally olması g [...]

    I hate only being able to give this book a 5 star rating. It would rate it 10 moons if I could. Lucinda Riley's writing is beautiful. I simply don't know what other adjective to use. Pick one. Seamless, whimsical, witty, smart, lyrical, enthralling, enchanting. see? I simply cannot pick one. The Seven Sisters is the first installment in an exciting new series based 6 Sisters all adopted by their beloved Pa Salt. They grew up in Switzerland on their very own island. Their mysterious father has al [...]

    The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley is the first book in a new series. The rich "Pa Salt" who has six adopted adult daughters, mysteriously added to his single parent family under circumstances unique and never explained to each one, has died. Just as mysteriously, his body has been whisked away and dropped into the ocean in a lead-lined coffin, leaving the grief stricken women who gather at their opulent Swiss lakeside home with no real closure. They are left, however, with trust funds, the loca [...]

    Lo que he disfrutado está lectura, inicio de saga interesantísimo y prometedor!Reseña próximamente en mi canal :)

    Αν και η συγγραφέας είχε μια σχετικά ενδιαφέρουσα και πρωτότυπη ιδέα κατέληξε δυστυχώς να δημιουργήσει ένα ακόμη ογκώδες αισθηματικό μυθιστόρημα με κάποια κοινωνικά και ιστορικά στοιχεία, ένα από τα πολλά του είδους που κυκλοφορούν.Δεν καταλαβαίνω γιατί κάθισε και ασχολ [...]

    Mislim da se ova dobro zamišljena priča o otkrivanju tajne porijekla prve i najstarije sestre nakon smrti tajanstvenog i bogatog poočima mogla puno bolje ispričati. Previše predvidivosti koja se mogla izbjeći, kao i spor ritam radnje koji kao takav ne drži pažnju, a onda i previše zbrzan kraj, osnovne su mi zamjerke. Sama priča iz prošlosti je zanimljiva, smještena u vrijeme izgradnje čuvenog kipa Krista Iskupitelja, zaštitnog znaka Rio de Janeira, ljubavna priča koja se iz Pariza [...]

    Clear your calendar before you pick up this book, you won't want to interrupt your reading! Prepare for an engrossing story, interesting characters, engaging dialogue and a superbly timed narrative. The story is fresh and the potential for this new series is ASTRONOMICAL. If The Seven Sisters was a stock, I would say buy it NOW as the rest of the world will soon discovery and want this book.Sure there are negatives to every book.Could this novel be called deep literary fiction filled with tools [...]

    Ya entiendo porque MariCarmen habla tan bien de este libro y ha querido continuar con la serie😍Es un libro que está muy bien escrito,con varias tramas que se entremezclan, jugando con el pasado y el presente. Investigando sobre las raíces de Maia en este caso,trasladándonos a Brasil y viviendo la construcción del Cristo Redentor dentro de la historia.De las otras hermanas sólo se muestran pequeñas pinceladas de su personalidad, tengo curiosidad de leer que misterio esconde cada una en s [...]

    Mysterious, romantic and tragic. I loved this story and I really enjoyed learning about life in Brazil and facts about the Christ the redeemer statue. Can't wait to read the next two!

    The seven sisters of the title are the D'Apliese sisters; there are actually only six of them, so that's the first mystery of this story. These women were all adopted as babies and brought up by the incredibly wealthy Pa Salt, on a beautiful estate in Geneva, Switzerland. Pa Salt has always been something of a mystery, a wealthy single man bringing up six beautiful adopted daughters, with no partner, just his trusted housekeeping staff to assist him. None of the girls really know how Pa Salt mad [...]

    Reseña entera en el blogUn libro más que recomendado si te gustan las historias diferentes, con una historia de amor prohibida pero preciosa y con una ambientación tan bien narrada que te transporta a otro lugar y otra época. Un libro lleno de misterios que querrás desvelar y con unas protagonistas diferentes.

    Overally,this was a good read and definately a page turner,only i felt the book could be 200 pages shorter.There were pages that nothing happened as the story dwelled on the same things over and over again.I think that Belle's story could have covered less pages,all this uneccessary chatter did not add something essential to the main story.However,i enjoyed it despite all the cliches like the pretty rich girl who suffocates in her wealthy environment,the ugly husband and the gorgeous french love [...]

    4,5 SterneEine wundervolle Geschichte auf 2 Zeitebenen. Am Schluss wurde dann doch leider sehr schnell und hastig das Buch beendet.

    Puntuación: 4.5Una novela que recomiendo muchísimo, he disfrutado de su ambientación tan magnífica, de el misterio de unos secretos familiares que se desvelaban poco a poco, todo eso ambientado en una ciudad tan bella como es Río de Janeiro y París. Intercalado con los años 20, y con los secretos de la construcción de el Cristo Redentor.Reseña completa: rubiesliterarios.

    Mein erstes Buch der Autorin! Von den eher platten und einfachen Dialogen war ich etwas enttäuscht, aber alles in Allem war es eine schöne und leichte Lektüre :) Fortsetzungen werden in jedem Fall gelesen!

    4 estrellas y media.en realidad. me ha gustado mucho y me.ha dejado con ganas de leer el siguiente

    *enthält Spoiler*Eigentlich wollte ich dieses Buch nicht lesen. Das Cover (und übrigens auch die der übrigen Bücher) spricht mich null an - ich dachte immer, es verbirgt sich eine Schnulze alá Rosamunde Pilcher oder Hera Lind dahinter - und auch der Klappentext lud mich nicht ein. Da dieses Buch aber von vielen Seiten so gelobt wurde und meine Schwiegeromi mir kürzlich Band 2 als Hörbuch in die Hand drückte, hab ich mir nun doch ein Herz gefasst und mal hineingelesen.Und es war erstaunli [...]
