When their father dies, Star D'Aplièse and her six sisters, all adopted by him from the four corners of the world, are left with few clues to their heritage. But Star - the most enigmatic of the sisters - is hesitant to step out of the safety of the close relationship she shares with her sister CeCe. In desperation, she decides to follow her first clue, which leads her to an antiquarian bookshop in London, and the start of a whole new world....



Praise for the author: "What an absolutely fantastic storyteller - I was immediately immersed in the story, and absolutely compelled." (Katherine Webb)

Great book, underwhelming narrator

Having read the first two instalments of this series in the German translation, I was really looking forward to listening to this sequel in the original.
I loved the content. It kept me glued to my earphones despite the really underwhelming narration. It's a great story, transporting us back to Edwardian times. Most of the characters were positively lovable, but of course there were some 'bad' ones among them. The story was interesting, the characters fascinating, the connection between then and now really well made, as was the denouement. So, I'd absolutely recommend READING this book, but I can't recommend to LISTEN to it.

The narrator didn't have any range of voice, so males and females all sounded alike. She tried to make up for this lack by giving terrible fake accents to the sisters. For heaven's sake, it is even spelled out that the sisters were raised bilingual -- English and French -- from the cradle, AND they had lived in England for several years by now. Maybe it would have helped if the accent would at least have sounded French -- alas, it sounded Russian at times, and undefinable at other times. And as if this wasn't bad enough, the narrator had the deaf boy shout his sign language, which hurt my ears.

Of all the many books I've listened to, this is the first time I'm writing a negative review about the narration, but I feel that I should warn potential listeners.

Immer wieder eine gute Geschichte von Riley

Wie immer hat mir diese Geschichte von Lucinda Riley gut gefallen. Anfangs dauerte es mir jedoch ein bisschen zu lang bis die Geschichte in Gang kam, also die Geschichte des Teils, der in der Vergangenheit spielt, erzählt wurde. Wie in den beiden Vorgängern der Serie hat mir der französische Akzent der Sprecherin nicht gefallen, wurde doch in allen Büchern berichtet, dass die Schwestern alle zweisprachig aufwuchsen.
