  • Anne Goldschrift
    Wenn das Bücherjahr 2018 mit einem so tollen Buch startet, kann es nur ein gutes Omen sein!Lucinda Riley ist einfach eine Meisterin der Familiengeschichten 😍
  • Lori
    Fantastic addition to the Seven Sisters series! I think I say this after each one I read, but I think this has been my favorite. It seems to take me a bit to get into each new story only because I’m trying to put all the sisters stories into order. However, once I got to know Kitty I was hooked. I love that Riley is able through this series to take her readers to different remote places across the globe and teach them something about these plac...

    Die sieben Schwestern haben mich den ganzen Februar über begleitet und ich habe keine Ahnung wie ich es aushalten soll bis band 5 erscheint 😭

    Well, this book is nothing short of spectacular! I cannot begin to explain the joy and fulfillment I get from reading the books in this series. In addition to the first book, The Seven Sisters, The Pearl Sister is my favorite. I absolutely fell in love with Kitty and her story. Set in Australia, I truly felt as if I was taken into another world. It takes me quite some time to get through these books - mainly because I don’t want to miss a singl...

    Poignant, enthralling, and exceptionally moving!The Pearl Sister, the fourth instalment in the The Seven Sisters series, is predominantly set in the dusty Australian heat during both the early 1900s and twenty-first century as it delves into the life, ancestors, and heritage of CeCe, the struggling, awkward artist who seems adrift and in desperate need of some inspiration, companionship, and contentment.The prose is expressive, eloquent, and hear...

    5 - "So far, it's been an utter... Adventure." Stars!There aren’t many authors I’d willingly sign up to read a 700+ page book by, but Lucinda Riley’s work is definitely one of the illustrious few that I have absolutely no problem saying yes to in that regard. The Pearl Sister perfectly highlighted why, because it never felt like I was reading a book of that length. The past is who I am… The story the author told, took me to present day T...

    I have so far read all the books published in this series except the second one and it's such a wonderful series. I really love how reach book takes one of the sisters through a journey, not only to a faraway country, like Australia in this book, but also a journey into the past.The best dual storyline books are the ones where both tales are equally interesting and Lucinda Riley has managed to achieve that with this book. I loved how the contempo...
  • Teresa
    There are times when I want to immerse myself in a novel and capture that feeling of sinking into a favourite armchair with my cosiest blanket with, more than likely, a large glass of rosé on the side. Lucinda Riley's novels have always given me that "hygge" feeling and The Pearl Sister is exactly the kind of comfort reading I need on darkening Autumnal evenings. I haven't read all of the previous "sisters" series but this works perfectly well a...
  • Lesincele Viaja gracias a los libros
    Cuarta entrega de la serie de las siete hermanas. Había leído alguna que otra reseña que decían que era la parte más floja de las cuatro y a mi en cambio, ha sido una de mis favoritas y eso que CeCe, la hermana en la que está centrada esta historia, es la que menos me convencía de todas.En este caso, CeCe se pondrá en búsqueda de sus orígenes, lo que le llevará a investigar sobre Kitty, una de las mujeres perleras más importantes de A...

  • Helen White
    Received in Goodreads giveaways - thank you very much. I wasn't really looking forward to CeCe's story after she came across as controlling and brattish in Star's previous novel. However as always a different perspective changes everything. CeCe does a bit of a runner and decides to head to Australia to find her family, stopping over in Thailand. Thailand brings her the rest and romance she might need but it's when she gets to Australia the s plo...

    Die Geschichte von CeCe hat mir noch besser gefallen als die von Maia im ersten Teil. Tolle menschliche Charaktere und eine emotionale Story, die einen zum ständigen weiterlesen zwingt.
  • Jenks
    After the the first two books - I had formed an opinion of Cece and I couldn’t of been more wrong ! This was amazing , I love the way the author details the journey of each daughter and how they finally find themselves home. I’d recommend this book and cannot wait to read the next one ( I read this slightly out of sync )
  • Nathalie
    WOW! Lucinda Rileys Schreibstil hat mich, wie immer, sofort begeistert. Trotz des sehr detailreichen Stils ist das Buch an keiner einzigen Stelle langweilig und kaum eine Autorin schafft es, die Persönlichkeit der Protagonisten (vor allem der Schwestern selbst) so greifbar zu vermitteln, wie Lucinda Riley. Wie man es aus den vorherigen Bändern bereits kennt, macht sich auch CeCe, mit Hilfe von Koordinaten und einem Hinweis von Pa Salt, auf die ...

    The Pearl Sister is the fourth installment of the planned Seven Sisters series, each book focusing on one sister. Pa Salt was a wealthy man who adopted six baby girls (yes six, not seven - why?) from all over the world and brought them up with love, luxury and opportunity at his lakeside castle in Geneva. Now he's dead and has bequeathed an envelope of clues for each daughter should they wish to trace their roots. The fourth sister is Cece....I'v...
  • Judy
    This is Cece's story - I always look forward to the next book in this series to find out where that sister came from and how she came to be adopted by Pa Salt. The stories are always intriguing as, after Pa Salt's death, each sister searches for her heritage. Cece's search takes her far away indeed and she finds a rich history with surprising characters. The historical backstory was fascinating and I loved reading about Kitty, Andrew and Drummond...
  • María josé
    Amo las novelas de Lucinda Riley y especialmente amo esta saga. Este cuarto libro no decepciona para nada. Los personajes son interesantes, los aspectos históricos y culturales son educativos y el misterio subyacente de Pa Salt es siempre intrigante.

    Einfach wunderschön 😊
  • Aleksandra
    Volim Australiju, a ovaj nastavak ima elemente meni dragih romana, Matildin posljednji valcer i Ptice umiru pjevajući, a podsjeća jako i na odličnu novozelandsku trilogiju koja počinje sa U zemlji bijelog oblaka. Odličan roman kao i ostali iz ovog serijala, samo sada treba dočekati i priču o petoj sestri a nije još ni izašla...
  • Alexandra Fuller
    I had enjoyed the first three of this series by Lucinda Riley and had eagerly awaited the issue of this one. I was a bit disappointed as I felt she did not convey the relationship of the main character with her Australian roots as well as she had with the back stories three earlier sisters. I felt the main character was lacking in things to illuminate her personality, she came over as very weak. I felt also that the author was searching for ideas...
  • Aylavella
    Al igual que las anteriores novelas de esta saga, me ha encantado. Es verdad que cuesta entrar más que en las otras, pero luego la historia se vuelve muy interesante y entretenida y entendemos mejor a Cece, y eso que no era una hermana que me cayera especialmente bien, por su actitud hacia Star en los anteriores libros, al final se le toma cariño.Muy recomendable.
  • The Lit Bitch
    4.5 stars I have been a huge fan of Lucina Riley’s novels for quite some time, although I think I missed one back in 2016, THE SHADOW SISTER, which makes me sad because I love her books. I simply must go back and read that one before the year is out and the next book comes out!That said, I don’t feel like I missed a whole lot by skipping around within the series. Every story is unique and independent of the series as a whole, but that said th...

    Pues como no podía ser de otra manera, me ha encantado también. Como dije en la novela anterior no podría decir cuál de las cuatro me ha gustado más. Sí alguna un poquito más que otra, y aunque me decanto por el segundo que es la historia de Ally -porque para mí ha sido la más emotiva- todas en su justa medida son maravillosas.Esta es la historia CeCe, la cuarta de las siete hermanas y en esta entrega la autora nos lleva a Australia para...

    Visit the locations in the novellink: The Pearl SisterI’m a huge fan of the Seven Sisters series and this is no exception. I spent a delicious day reading this and nothing else. What a treat it was. Intertwining stories, another mystery of a sister finding out who her real parents are, travelling to Australia, to Alice Springs no less to find out. I loved the going back in time to meet Kitty – a woman whose life is linked to Star. The intrica...

    This novel in the Seven Sisters series follows CeCe on her journey to discover where she came from and who she is. CeCe has never felt like she fits in anywhere, and until recently, always had Star to depend on. However, since Star discovered her own path in the Shadow Sister, and started to live her own life, CeCe find herself utterly alone.CeCe decides to follow the clues left to her and heads off to Australia to find out about her heritage. On...

    This was absolutely beautiful. Pearl sister is my favourite of the seven sisters series so far. I have smiled, cried, laughed, gasped a few times and thought about the storyline when I was not reading it. The characters were just brilliant I could relate to the storylines and characters in so many different ways I felt like my own life was projected in some ways. The historical aspect of Australia and the pearling industry was amazing to read abo...
  • Amy
    As usual a fast and easy read. I had some issues with the writing and character portrayal... For example CeCe didn't know what genocide is??? And who Darwin was?? Being dyslexic doesn't mean you are lacking general knowledge! I always love the tales Lucinda Riley spins so was really fun to read. I don't get what Ace had to do with anything. I feel like the end of that storyline was a let down.

    Finishing the book this morning, tears streaming down my face in the last few pages. I adored this!Someone asked me last week, if its a standalone, or does one have to read the first four. Yes you do. while I am sure that anything could be read as a standalone, this is meant to be part of a series, one that has completely and exquisitely wrapped me up. So I am writing my review pretty much exclusively for Jolene - who introduced me to Book One (T...
