Geschreven bij The Seven Sisters
First reviewed at M's Bookshelf:
Where to even begin. WOW. What a jewel.
Not rereading the blurb before I started reading, this story took me completely by surprise. I let Lucinda Riley and her wonderful characters take me on this breathtaking journey. After only a few pages I found myself completely immersed in these story lines and characters and I felt almost heartbroken when there were finally no more pages left for me to read.
I don't want to give away too much about the story - 'cause really, I can only recommend just diving in before (re)reading the blurb - but I can honestly say that the character's (family) history is incredibly interesting, surprising and oh so romantic. Even though the main characters are so far apart from what I know or who I am, I felt an instant connection. It's clear that Lucinda cares a lot about her characters and that care and love really translates into her stories. I couldn't be happier to know that the sisters' stories will continue in a 7(!) book series! Not only am I dying to know what each sister's story is, I'm so excited to - hopefully - find out more about their almost magical upbringing. I can't wait to travel the world (through time) in the next 6 installments.
The Seven Sisters really has anything. Family, sacrifice, love,... I feel overwhelmed, to be honest. And I know for sure that these characters and their amazing stories will stay with me for a long time.
The Seven Sisters is a magical book, and Lucinda Riley a truly gifted writer and storyteller. I cannot recommend this enough, but I must add that the risk of getting a book hangover is very real. ;-)
