The Pearl Sister: The Seven Sisters Book 4

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): CeCe D’Apli├Ęse has always felt like an outcast. But following the death of her father—the reclusive billionaire affectionately called Pa Salt by the six daughters he adopted from around the globe—she finds herself more alone than ever. With nothing left to lose, CeCe delves into the mystery of her familial origins. The only clues she holds are a black and white photograph and the name of a female pioneer who once traversed the globe from Scotland to Australia.

One hundred years earlier, Kitty McBride, a clergyman's daughter, abandoned her conservative upbringing to serve as the companion to a wealthy woman traveling from Edinburgh to Adelaide. Her ticket to a new land brings the adventure she dreamed of…and a love that she had never imagined.

When CeCe reaches the searing heat and dusty plains of the Red Centre of Australia, something deep within her responds to the energy of the area and the ancient culture of the Aboriginal people, and her soul reawakens. As she comes closer to finding the truth of her ancestry, CeCe begins to believe that this untamed, vast continent could offer her what she’s always yearned for: a sense of belonging.

Just as The Shadow Sister was an “engaging and mesmerizing story of self-discovery and love” (Library Journal, starred review), The Pearl Sister is your next “perfect curl-up-in-an-armchair read” (Daily Mail, UK) from Lucinda Riley.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: My favorite Seven Sisters series book so far!    I didn't care for CeCe in The Shadow Sister, but I loved her in The Pearl Sister.  We see such a different side of CeCe in this book.  Once again, we are taken on a journey of one of the 6 seven sisters and their discovery of their past.  Upon Pa Salt's death, each adoptive sister is presented with clues to their families history.  We are able to read "current" day along side the past.  

I loved how the two stories blended into one book.  Each story had me wanting more every time I turned a page.  I didn't want to leave one story, even though I couldn't wait to get back to the first story.  Another reoccurring theme is how strong the women are in both stories.  My kind of book!  

The story of Kitty and the twin bothers still has my mind twirling.  We are tossed some really big twists in both stories.  I wasn't expecting it and it is so good (no spoiler here!).  Of all my "historical" characters, Kitty is by far my favorite.  The Pearl Sister is a must read in The Seven Sisters series!  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I have read all the books in the series and can't wait for Book 5!
