Goodreads:  Ally D'Aplièse is about to compete in one of the world's most perilous yacht races, when she hears the news of her adoptive father's sudden, mysterious death. Rushing back to meet her five sisters at their family home, she discovers that her father - an elusive billionaire affectionately known to his daughters as Pa Salt - has left each of them a tantalising clue to their true heritage.

Ally has also recently embarked on a deeply passionate love affair that will change her destiny forever. But with her life now turned upside down, Ally decides to leave the open seas and follow the trail that her father left her, which leads her to the icy beauty of Norway...

There, Ally begins to discover her roots - and how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived there over 100 years before, and sang in the first performance of Grieg's iconic music set to Ibsen's play 'Peer Gynt'. As Ally learns more about Anna, she also begins to question who her father, Pa Salt, really was. And why is the seventh sister missing?

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and I would completely recommend starting at book one so you can get the full enjoyment of these books.  

The series is about Seven Sisters and they are all adopted from different places, their adoptive father has passed away suddenly, but he has left clues for each daughter to find out where they came from and their heritage.  I believe the books are going in order from oldest to youngest.  This second book is the second daughter.

I found out the big reveal probably very early in the book, I was a little disappointed that I did, but the book was still really good!  I like these epic books where the character has to go on a big journey to find out something about themselves. 

The one thing that made this book really shine was how she intertwined the historical storyline into the journey to the past.  By literally putting a book within a book, the reader is easily swept up into the past and it doesn't feel forced, it was nice and easy.

I will be reading the next two books in this series and reviewing them over the next two days, the fourth book was just released, but I will repeat for this series I would completely suggest starting at the beginning and enjoying each epic story in order.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
