Seven Sisters: Book Three
The third book in the Seven Sisters series arrived and I read most of it at the beach.
You can read about the second book here.
Each book deals with one of the sisters, raised by a multimillionaire in Switzerland. When Pa died, each girl was given clues to her heritage.
The third sister, Star, is quiet and thin. She has spent her life enveloped in the life of her sister CeCe. They were always together. Star could write but not speak well. Her sister had dyslexia, but spoke loudly and clearly for both of them. And so, it was difficult for both of them, having been co-dependant for the first twenty years of their lives, when Star attempted to make some space between them in order to search for her heritage in London England, specifically in a book store. Star got a job there and, through the owner, Orlando, she learned the story of several generations of her biological family. It included the King of England and the writer Beatrix Potter, oh, and she also met her biological mother. And, of course, she fell in love.
Once again, there is great complexity to the long saga. It continues to peak your interest in the adopted father, Pa Salt. Who was he, and how and why did he adopt these girls?
I admire this writer for the huge task she has taken on. There are so many themes and storylines, that as soon as I finish, I want to start again. But... another whole year before the next book will be released!
