Publisher's Summary

Following the death of her father, CeCe D'Aplièse finds herself at breaking point. In desperation, she decides to flee England and discover her past; the only clues she has are a photograph and the name of a woman pioneer who lived in Australia over 100 years ago. When CeCe finally reaches the Red Centre of Australia, she begins the search for her past. With help from those she meets on her journey, CeCe begins to believe that this wild, vast continent could offer her a sense of belonging.

    "Absolutely wonderful!"

    Lucinda smashed it as usual! Loved CeCe’s story more than I thought I would, as my impression of her in the Shadow Sister was not the best. I wish, as with the other books, that the story would continue. I never listen to the little preview of the next sister, as I want to start every audiobook with a clean slate, but I already cannot wait to meet Tiggy!

    "Best narrators of the series so far"

    It’s good that Audible decided against using the terrible French accents which detracted from the previous two books. The story contains some interesting aspects of Australian history and culture but was very long and rambling - it was hard to see the point of the whole episode in Thailand, apart from the laughable link to the cursed pearl toward the end, but maybe this will become clear in future books in the series. The character of Kitty, like that of Flora in the previous book, didn’t live up to expectations - she is hyped up as a great female pioneer but is often conventional or inconsistent in her actions and actions. I’m just about hanging in with this series as I’m curious about the mysterious seventh sister, the true identity of Pa Salt and whether or not he is actually dead!

    "Sisters of the Sky."

    Fantastic 4th bnook in the 7 sisters series. Also would be a excellent stand alone book as this is a story within a story. Takes us finally to the heat of Australia into a earlier world. Superb book. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Great story"

    Really enjoyed the historical background and the change in personality the main character underwent. My favorite of the "sisters" books thus far.

    "5 hours in and I'm still disinterested"

    OK. Sigh. The readers are better than 1 of the previous, I still liked #1 the best and of Lucinda's books I'll call The Light Behind the Window and The Girl on the Cliff my favorites.

    I'm nearly 5 hours in and I really don't care. At least tell us a little more about Pa Salt and Ma. I feel apathetic towards these young women. I waited 8 months for this and it's blah.

    I'm jumping off and asking for my credit back.

    "Another wonderful story of the 7 sisters (or 6) "

    First of all, Celino is aboriginal/asian etc etc. and talks about her dark unruly curls and her flat nose. So who is this woman on the cover? The "Pearl Sister" is C so it should look like her. Minor point but it bugged me. I loved this book but the layers of generations got a little trying to keep track of. I don't want to give anything away. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Tiggy's story.

    "Love this series!"

    I am absolutely enjoying this series and hate that we have to wait for the next book. The narrations have been excellent so far, but fell a little behind in this particular book. In the beginning it's a little hard to follow because all the characters sound quite a bit alike. I like that they change narrators when telling the story of the past, but it's difficult to keep up when narrators change between books for the storyline in present time. Even though the sisters all grew up in the same place with the same language, some have very different accents and some have the exact same voice even though none of them are related. So, while the narrators are pretty decent, I think the production could have taken time to flesh out who should sound like what. Overall, though, it isn't enough to keep me from enjoying the story and listening to it.

    "My favorite series ever."

    Just love this beautifully written series about adopted sisters all discovering where they came from. The stories are rich and full and the the narrator voices are lovely to listen to.

    "Slow start but got better"

    Almost stopped listening as the start was very slow and found it hard to get into . Didnt like the narraters voice for the male caracters and this took awhile to get used to. Not as good as the previous books Shame .But still worth a credit to follow the seven sisters .
