The Storm Sister
Ally's StoryBook - 2016
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 tantalizing clue to their true heritage.
But the timing couldn't be worse: Ally had only recently fallen into a new and deeply passionate love affair, but with her life now turned upside down, she 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 over a century 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?
Following the internationally bestselling novel The Seven Sisters , this novel, "full of drama and romance" ( Daily Mail ), continues Lucinda Riley's spellbinding series inspired by the mythology surrounding the famous star constellation.

SummaryAdd a Summary
An Olympic yachting hopeful traces her heritage to Norway, following an intriguing clue left by her deceased father, which leads her to uncover the story of a woman linked one hundred years ago to the composer of "Peer Gynt," Edvard Grieg.
All six D'Apliese sisters were adopted as babies from far-flung corners of the world and raised in luxury by a wealthy Austrian, Pa Salt. Named after the stars in the famous constellation, the sisters knew nothing of their ancestral backgrounds but lived happy, carefree childhoods. After learning of Pa Salt's sudden death, all six sisters return to Austria, where they each receive several clues that set them on a path of self-discovery. The second book in Riley's Seven Sisters series dives into the history of Ally D'Apliese, the headstrong and athletic second sister with a passion for the sea and a gift for music. Following Pa Salt's clues, Ally treks to Norway to discover an amazing link between her ancestors and Edvard Grieg, the famous composer of the Peer Gynt Suite. The second installment of Riley's sweeping series doesn't disappoint, jumping from present-day Europe to nineteenth-century Norway and back again. Riley's talent for blending current events with detailed backstories will intrigue historical-fiction readers, while fans of Kristin Hannah and Paulette Giles will appreciate the engrossing and introspective story of belonging, heartache, and acceptance.--Turza, Stephanie Copyright 2016 Booklist
