Description

Maia D'Apliése and her five sisters were all adopted as babies. When their father dies each of them are given a clue to their true heritage - a clue which takes Maia across the world…

Rio de Janeiro, 1927, Izabela Bonifacio convinces her father to allow her to accompany him to Europe. There, in the heady, vibrant cafés of Montparnasse, she meets ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly, and knows at once that her life will never be the same again…

Exceptional performance, great story

I really enjoyed this book, it’s story, the historical context...
The reader was excellent, clearly fluent in French which made the rendering of the French names and few sentences sound natural (which does not happen often!)
I am already sorry to see that the next books won’t be read by the same person

Simply charming and exciting

Would you listen to The Seven Sisters again? Why?

Yes. I find there will probably be more clues to pick up as the story will obviously progress. I can't wait for the sequels. Surely there are more to come. The story ended with a clue to the beginning of the next saga. There is still so much to see were the author is going with this. 5 more sisters, Pa-salts past and connection with the girls, SPOILER ALERT- 7th sister.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't think I had a favorite, they were all intriguing in their own way.

What about Emily Lucienne’s performance did you like?

Very well done. Love the way she is able to speak in the accents and languages that make the stories come alive.

If you could take any character from The Seven Sisters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Pa-salt. What was he up to?

Any additional comments?

Please don't disappoint. Must know when the sequels can be expected. More, more, more.

Who Are You?

It had a slow start, but once it got going, I couldn't put it down. I'm hoping to find the stories about the remainder of the sisters, as this book only delved into the complete story of the eldest. Though fictional, it makes you question who you are and who do you want to be.

Wonderful story.

The first book in the series was fascinating. It was hard to put it down every night. I can't wait for the second book to be released.

Great story!

If you could sum up The Seven Sisters in three words, what would they be?

Couldn't put down

What did you like best about this story?

The writers brought the characters to Life.

Which scene was your favorite?

Grandmother speaking to Maya.

If you could take any character from The Seven Sisters out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Isabella. Her story was faded after her husband discovered the truth.

Any additional comments?

I am now a fan of Lucinda Riley and can't wait to read the next book in this series. In the meantime I will be listening to another on of Lucinda's books.

creative and captivating

I did enjoy the story very much. There was interesting historical fiction and good character development. I look forward to the rest in the series… with the exception of the narrator. While she did well with the accents, many times she seemed to ne thinking of something other than what she was reading and her low monotone was distracting. That said, overall I enjoyed this book.

wonderful story

This was a wonderful story, well written and I hope from the ending that it is only the beginning and there will be the other six sisters stories. Loved the narrator, her voice, and accents were great.

There MUST be more to follow....

I enjoyed this book, but it left so many loose ends. I didn't understand why so many characters were introduced in detail, and then never mentioned again. I will look for more!

Phantasy to dwell in

Interesting Love Story in two generations; at times too much Drama and a just too Perfect World and Family but all in all just what everybody would Dream of

nice story but narrator could be better

It's a pity the narrator didn't even take the care to find out how some of the recurrent words in Portuguese are pronounced before recording

Eine Liebesgeschichten eingebettet in der Geschichte mehrerer interessanter Orte

Der Anfang war mir etwas zu langsam, doch schon bald konnte ich gar nicht mehr aufhören.

Auch die Stimme der Sprecherin fand ich angenehm und gefiel mir im Verlauf der Geschichte immer besser.

Schöne romantische Geschichte

Ich habe das Hörbuch am Stand gehört, und es genossen. Interessant fand ich den Wechsel zwischen der Geschichte in der Vergangenheit und der aktuellen Geschichte. Die Sprecherin fand ich sehr angenehm.
Für meine Rückreise habe ich mir schon den nächsten Band runtergeladen.

Zum Gähnen langweilig!

Interessante Idee, aber Umsetzung nicht gelungen. Hätte ganz erheblich gekürzt werden müssen, um spannend zu sein. Andere Titel der Serie sind deutlich spannender. Für dieses Hörbuch hätte ich eigentlich 0 Sterne vergeben, nur leider ist das ja nicht möglich.

Würden Sie The Seven Sisters noch mal anhören? Warum?

I loved this story and couldn't stop hearing it. I particularly loved the voice of the narrator. I cant'wait to hear the next story, however I regret that it won't be the same narrator

Very nice story but also very long-winded...

...and repetitive. Could do with less I said, he said, I thought, she thought.... But all in all definitely worth listening to.
