Hi Laura,
What an interesting question! All the books in the Seven Sisters series begin with the sisters finding out about the death of their adoptive father Pa Salt. In his will, he gives them clues to the truth of their heritage, and this galvanises them to find out more about where they come from.
I think that the death of a parent is something that is often explored in literature, because it is sadly a universal thing that brings up a depth of emotions. X(less)

Auch Band 2 hat mir gut gefallen, allerdings kam er für mich nicht ganz an Band 1 heran. Obwohl ich Ally genauso sympathisch fand wie Maia, hätte ich doch ein bisschen meine Probleme um mit Anna warm zu werden...
Die Geschichte an sich setzt wieder in der selben Zeit an wie Band 1, was vermutlich vor allem gut ist, wenn zwischen dem lesen der einzelnen Bücher etwas mehr Zeit liegt als bei mir dieses Mal 😇😅
Wieder sehr genial fand ich wie schmackhaft Lucinda Riley einem klassische Musik gemacht hat

The second novel in Riley's Seven Sisters series has taken me on another amazing journey. I love that each story explores a new historical figure... in this novel that person is Norwegian composer Grieg. Also, the mystery of Pa Salt and the overall part he plays in the girls pasts is again touched upon. I'm not sure that I enjoyed Ally's story as much as Maia's, but this is still very solid and entertaining. I am looking forward to continuing this series with the D’Apliese sisters and seeing wha ...more

Me gusto mucho esta segunda parte de la historia de Las 7 hermanas.
El escenario en el que se desarrolla, hermoso y ni que decir de la música en la que se basa gran parte de la trama, simplemente ¡espectacular!

The Storm Sister is the second book in the Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley and the book is amazing! All the books in the series are written in a way that does not matter if you read them in whatever order you want. However, I would say that it's a good idea to read them from the beginning, in order to follow the seven adopted sisters while each of them finds their roots. There are some things happening in their lives in the books that may be interesting to follow chronologically.

4.5 - The moment is all we have. Stars!

The Storm Sister is the second book in Lucinda Riley’s The Seven Sisters series. Having read and enjoyed the first book, I have to say I was eagerly awaiting Ally’s story. But be warned this isn’t a book you pick up and read in a couple of hours, it’s one of those stories that demands you pay attention but at the same time you get lost in its pages.

In moments of weakness you will find your greatest strength.

Wieder mal ein wundervolles Buch von Lucinda Riley, das einfach zum träumen und verweilen einlädt!

Meine Erwartungen bei diesem Teil der Sieben-Schwestern-Reihe war nicht ganz so hoch, da mir Ally, deren Vergangenheit und Geschichte in diesem Teil beleuchtet wird, im ersten Band so gar nicht sympathisch war. Auch die von mir erwartete Thematik rund ums Segeln fand ich vorher nicht wirklich spannend, aber es ist nicht das eigentliche Grundthema dieses Buches. Und deshalb muss ich sagen, dass sich

Story within a story,within a story.It could have been great but all this separate narratives comfused me.Five generations of Hallvorsen all mixed up in a huge book.Pip's story was absolutely useless.Anna's story was the one i mostly enjoyed.An interesting book which i would prefer much more had it been shorter and not so detailed.The first book of the series,the storm sisters,is much more interesting than this but ok i give it three stars since it wasn't that awful,in fact quite enjoying!!!!

Wieder eine wundervolle, spannende Reise, voller verschiedener Emotionen und Schicksale. Wieder wunderschön erzählt.

Dieses Mal reisen wir mit Ally, die mir überraschend gut gefallen hat, nach Norwegen.
Nach dem etwas stolpernden Start hatte ich nicht erwartet, dass sie mir so ans Herz wachsen würde. Sie ist stark und positiv und hat mich zum Ende hin immer mehr begeistert. Auch ihre Familiengeschichte ist besonders und fesselnd.

Si la historia de Maia me gustó, esta de Ally la ha superado con creces. Una historia preciosa, con muchos sentimientos y que a mí me ha conmovido muchísimo. La primera parte es un poco triste, pero está tan bien contada y te llena tanto que es imposible dejar de leer.

Con Ally nos vamos a Noruega para descubrir sus orígenes y nos encontramos sus raíces con la música. De compositores, cantantes, dramaturgos, ópera, etc, trata la documentación e investigación en esta segunda novel

Der zweite Band der "Sieben Schwestern"-Reihe von Lucinda Riley war für mich definitiv stärker als der erste. Ich hatte zwar echt Probleme mit den ersten 150 Seiten, die man fast 1:1 schon so im Band um Maia gelesen hat und war wirklich kurz davor, es wieder zur Seite zu legen. Mir ist schon klar, dass die Autorin dies schreibt, um die Alleinstellung der einzelnen Bände zu gewährleisten, aber mal ehrlich... entweder ich schreibe eine Reihe oder ich schreibe Einzelbände...

Without a doubt this series is going to be one that will go above and beyond a mere existence. The second sister, Ally (Alcyone), one of the 7 sisters of the Pleiades, is just as confused as she learns that each of her siblings as well as herself, have been left clues by their adopted father, Pa Salt, to learn where they come from. Ally's corner of the globe exists in the Norwegian area where music is the epitome of an artistic and orchestrated story. Ally's biological history lies here, and tho ...more

I’m sad to say that I didn’t enjoy this book nearly as much as the first in the series and there’s two main reasons for that. The first and most important being that I just didn’t connect with Ally like I did with Maia. And when I don’t connect with the characters, I really struggle to get into a book. The second reason is that I was really hoping the mythology of the Seven Sisters would be further explored in this book but there was big fat zilch about it. The story was still incredibly interes ...more

Vrlo lijepa priča o drugoj, olujnoj sestri, dopala mi se čak i malo više nego prva iz serijala o sedam sestara. Sa radnjom iz prošlosti smještenom u muzičke krugove Norveške krajem 19. i u 20. stoljeću, te savremenom pričom jednako dirljivom i zanimljivom, ali i misterijom u tragovima za koju treba nastaviti čitati serijal, Lucinda je napravila dobar posao. Nastavljam stoga odmah sa otkrivanjem tajne porijekla i treće sestre, sestre iz sjenke!

Wat lezen mooi maakt is dat een verhaal je kan vastgrijpen. Op de fiets, tijdens een autorit of elk ander moment dat je niet kan lezen betrap je jezelf erop dat je gedachten afdwalen naar het verhaal en de pagina waar je de personages achterliet. En net dat gevoel heb ik met deze serie. Ik kan wel een paar punten van kritiek formuleren op de schrijfstijl, maar feit is dat ik wil weten hoe het verder zal gaan met de verschillende zussen.

A massive book that kept me gripped. I can’t wait to read the other sisters’ stories. This is so cleverly written in that you can read them in any order. You get snippets about other sisters but not in a distracting way.

Absolutely amazing! I was bound to this book for days. I read a little each day trying to digest it before moving on.

First of all, this is second in "The Seven Sisters series." I highly recommend you read the first book in the series before moving on to "The Storm Sister" because you get so much background from the first book. "The Storm Sister" is a beautifully written novel about Ally, the second sister. She is an adventurer (at least to me). She crews on racing yachts all over the world and

The sheer size of this book caused me to set it aside for a couple months…this was a mistake. Once I started reading, the 683 pages flew! There is a story within the story in this well crafty dual-time novel and both are equally compelling. After reading much of the book twice, I am still unable to solve the Pa Salt mystery….Book Club and Goodread friends-where did Pa Salt get the frog?

Band 2 der Sieben Schwestern Reihe und es geht mit Ally weiter, startet aber am gleichen Zeitpunkt wie Band 1 mit Maia. Das ist besonders bei den Parallel-Szenen interessant und vor allem sehr gut von der Autorin umgesetzt.
Dieses mal dauert es eine Weile, bis wir von Ally in die Vergangenheit zurückspringen, aber Allys Geschichte im "Jetzt" ist auch sehr spannend und vor allem herzzerreißend.

Letztendlich fand ich die Geschichte von Ally doch ganz nett. Leider kommt dieser Teil bei weitem nicht an die Geschichte im ersten Teil ran. Die Geschichte hat an vielen Stellen einfach nur dahingeplätschert und die Charaktere waren mir zu oberflächlich gezeichnet. Lucindas Rileys Schreibstil hat mich aber das Buch zu Ende lesen lassen, den dieser ist wie immer toll. Ich werde bald mit dem dritten Teil weitermachen, hoffentlich spricht mich dort Setting und die Charaktere mehr an.

4,5 estrellas para la segunda entrega de la serie. Le he dado más puntuación de la que pensaba porque la autora ha conseguido que me emocionara un par de veces.
En la misma línea que la novela anterior y que la siguiente, tenemos una historia a varios tiempos y con personajes de épocas distintas pero cuya existencia está unida a través de la sangre.
Es fácil engancharse a esta serie

The second in her Seven Sisters series, the Storm Sister follows Ally, a strong and fiery character with a passion for sailing. The story once again starts off with Pa Salt's mysterious death and bequest to all his daughters, leaving them clues as to their true heritage. For Ally though, Pa Salt's death is just one event in what proves to be rather an emotional roller-coaster period in her life; as she finds herself thrown from incredible highs to devastating lows. Yet just when she is left at h ...more
