    1. Wenn das B cherjahr 2018 mit einem so tollen Buch startet, kann es nur ein gutes Omen sein Lucinda Riley ist einfach eine Meisterin der Familiengeschichten


    2. 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 places while they re there So excited to continue these sist [...]


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


    4. 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 heartfelt The characters are complex, genuine, and end [...]


    5. Could this book be about Tiggy the spiritual sister in Scotland I hope it is I m a very spiritual person so I can relate to her a lot.Now that I m reading Star s story in The Shadow Sister, I know that The Pearl Sister is about the artistic, outspoken Ceecee, who at night is tormented by nightmares she doesn t talk about, who makes art but doesn t brag about it, who has dyslexia, and loves Star in a codependent way.


    6. 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, than likely, a large glass of ros 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 as a standalone novel This is the story of Cece who feels isola [...]

    8. Received in 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 plot really gets good As with most dual storylines it s the historica [...]


    9. Cuarta entrega de la serie de las siete hermanas Hab a le do alguna que otra rese a que dec an que era la parte m s floja de las cuatro y a mi en cambio, ha sido una de mis favoritas y eso que CeCe, la hermana en la que est centrada esta historia, es la que menos me convenc a de todas.En este caso, CeCe se pondr en b squeda de sus or genes, lo que le llevar a investigar sobre Kitty, una de las mujeres perleras m s importantes de Australia y con la que al parecer est emparentada Para ello, recorr [...]


    10. 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 st ndigen weiterlesen zwingt.


    11. 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 Pers nlichkeit der Protagonisten vor allem der Schwestern selbst so greifbar zu vermitteln, wie Lucinda Riley Wie man es aus den vorherigen B ndern bereits kennt, macht sich auch CeCe, mit Hilfe von Koordinaten und einem Hinweis von Pa Salt, auf die Suche nach ihrer leiblichen Familie Sie reist gerne, schl [...]


    12. 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.I hear there may be a tv series panmacmillan blogs fi [...]



    13. Pues como no pod a ser de otra manera, me ha encantado tambi n Como dije en la novela anterior no podr a decir cu l de las cuatro me ha gustado m s S alguna un poquito m s que otra, y aunque me decanto por el segundo que es la historia de Ally porque para m ha sido la m s 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 descubrir sus or genes Nos adentramos en la cultura e historia d [...]


    14. Al igual que las anteriores novelas de esta saga, me ha encantado Es verdad que cuesta entrar m s 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 cari o.Muy recomendable.


    15. 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 they are all connected by central characters and other plo [...]


    16. 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 intricate way the story played out was a delight and the 670 or so pa [...]


    17. 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 the way she has a stop in Thailand and meets Ace, an [...]


    18. I ve been reading and blogging about Lucinda Riley s books ever since I started Random Things I am a huge fan of her books and her Seven Sisters series absolutely wonderful I am completely in awe of her, she has produced one book per year for the past four years and each one is detailed, so well researched and totally gripping I ve been looking forward to reading CeCe s story, and I wasn t disappointed It s fabulous, it s a huge book, just like the others, but I tore through it and really could [...]


    19. I have previously reviewed the first three books in this series, The Seven Sisters, The Storm Sister and The Shadow Sister, so I have been eagerly waiting for the release of this fourth book in the series In my opinion The Pearl Sister is the best so far, I was immersed in CeCe s story, I really couldn t put this book down.CeCe s story takes the reader to the beautiful and exotic beaches of Thailand, and its antithesis the desolate outback of Australia As with the previous three books, Lucinda R [...]


    20. Lucinda Riley geh rt inzwischen zu meinen liebsten Autorinnen und bei ihr kann ich immer spannende Geschichten und interessante Charaktere erwarten Die Reihe um die sieben Schwestern hat mir von Anfang an sehr gut gefallen.In Die Perlenschwester geht es nun um die Geschichte von CeCe, die vierte Schwester Nach dem Tod von Pa Salt fl chtet CeCe nun erstmal nach Thailand, um herauszufinden wie es in ihrem Leben weitergehen soll, doch ihre Vergangenheit f hrt nach Australien.Die Geschichte wird wie [...]


    21. Ich finde, das ist der bisher st rkste Teil der Schwestern Reihe.Erst hatte ich Bedenken, denn CeCe wirkt in den anderen Teilen nicht gerade sympathisch, aber wie es so ist, ein zweiter Blick lohnt sich meistens Ich mochte es sehr, wie sich ihr Charakter entwickelt hat und das sie aus ihren Fehlern lernt Auch die erneute zweite Zeitebene war wieder sehr gut und hat mir richtig gefallen.




    22. 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.


    23. 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 to bring the story together but she did not succeed [...]


    24. You can also see this review and the rest of Seven Sisters reviews at my blog umutreviews.wordpress 201 I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I heard that my father had died, I thought to myself as I stared out of the window and saw the complete blackness of the night Intermittently below me, there were small clusters of twinkling lights indicating human habitation, each light containing a life, a family, a set of friends.None of which I felt I had any longer opens The Pearl S [...]


    25. Happy to get back to this series although, I have to admit, I started the book with some trepidation because I had such a difficult time with the way CeCe s character was portrayed in the last book The Shadow Sister She came off as controlling, angry and needy, traits I don t find appealing in the least Even tho she and Star had a co dependent relationship, CeCe was the one who appeared to make all the decisions on their behalf it felt like she held Star back So, long story short as far as provi [...]


    26. Dass Lucinda Riley klasse schreibt, ist kein Geheimnis Auch Teil vier der Schwestern Reihe hat sich wieder gut gelesen Dieses Mal begleiten wie CeCe auf ihrer Reise nach Thailand, da sie sich noch nicht sicher ist, ob sie berhaupt ihre leibliche Familie kennenlerne will Nach ihrem Aufenthalt in Thailand macht sie sich auf den Weg nach Australien Auch dieses Buch erz hlt zwei Geschichten Zum einen die von CeCe, zum anderen die von Kitty Mercer, einer Schottin, die Anfang des 20 Jahrhunderts nach [...]


    27. It is Cece s turn to unearth her heritage and travel across the world to Broome, Australia, where the magnificent pearl legacy entwines several cultures, including the Aboriginals One hundred years earlier, Kitty Mercer travels with her new husband, Andrew, who runs one of the largest pearl empires on the continent Traveling by ship, horse and cart and walkabout , there is no shortage of heat and dust in this tale As one tragedy after another takes place in this historical tale, Cece is thrown i [...]
