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!

The best sister so far

In my opinion this is the best so far. Really engaging and thoroughly researched storyline, believable characters and beautifully narrated. Am really quite sad I've finished the book although my dogs who have had to trek for many a mile while I'm glued to the audio book are pretty glad to rest their weary paws. Feel like I've lost my favourite teddy bear now am up-to-date with the sisters. Wonder how long before No. 5 surfaces?

An Amazing Series

Please I beg you if you haven't already started this series of books, to read them! I am entranced by the stories of all the sisters and having just read The Pearl Sister the thought of having to wait for the next book is very sad. If you start reading the enjoy!

excellent

I've enjoyed all of this series and loved this Star Sister. I would highly recommend this latest Sister. The narration was equally excellent. Only sadness was when it ended!! Can't wait for the next sister's. Wish he had adopted more!!

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.

Brilliant

What a marvellous story- I loved it and was disappointed when it ended, Maybe there will be a sequel - I do hope so. The narrators were both excellent- so many different accents. I found it very emotional at times and the way Lucinda Riley describes the scenery, especially in Australia, was wonderful.

Oh my what a fab book

I loved this book. Having said that before I purchased this, I deliberated as on previous The pearl sisters books I had judged that I didn't like CeCe. But I did buy & I'm so glad I did. I loved it just like all the others.

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 .

Beautiful!

I have read all of Lucinda Riley's books and all of this series and this was my very favorite. And to be honest, I was least excited about this one because of CeCe's personality in the other books. But I think it is because of that - her growth and transformation through this beautiful novel that I loved it that much more. Thank you, Lucinda, and the terrific narrators, for this treasure. Best I have read in a while!
My only criticism is the book's cover has a picture of someone who looks nothing like CeCe- which kind of misses the point of the whole book.

Wonderful series

I love this unusual series! I can’t wait to listen to the nextsister’s story or learn the mystery of why the sisters were brought together.

This is one of the better stories in the series. <br />

I feel I have heard the story before..

Its a really good story, I really enjoy the series. My only problem is I "knew" everything in advance of it happening, i.e. the Ace part, all of Kittys story. Only "surprise" was the Chrissy part.. Have read some stories with similar timeline about Australia before, immigration from Scotland/Ireland/England, aborigno/white mix-treatment, the pearling industry by i.e Tamara McKinley. Must search for the similar story/stories. Was kind of weird because it felt like I was rereading an old favorite book, not a brand new one..
I liked that they used different narrators on prese nt story and the past, liked the present narrator best.

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 &quot;Pearl Sister&quot; 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.

The Seven Sisters Series Continues To Impress!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I absolutely would recommend this audiobook and have done so many times. The Seven Sisters Series is by far my favorite series I've ever read. Each book is better than the last and I love how unique each sister's story is.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pearl Sister?

Cece's character development really made the story. Like many others, I initially didn't like her in the past books given her domineering personality. But I must insist, she's worth a try in this novel and Riley successfully redeemed her character.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to see what happens next in The Seven Sisters Series. I love how each story always includes a snippet of what might be Pa Salt so I really hope that mystery continues to develop with each new novel.

Another Great Sister Book

The Pearl Sister was wonderful to listen to. Each of the sisters have a distinctive voice and listening through audible really brings the story to life. I love audible books because I can knit while I listen.
