‘The Sun Sister’ by Lucinda Riley (The Seven Sisters # 6)

Finally got to the latest instalment in the addictive The Seven Sisters series about the youngest sister Electra. She is a super model and in the fast lane to destruction because of drink and drugs. Unlike the five sisters whose birth stories and histories are discovered in earlier books, Electra really has no interest in her past. She has lost the precious letter left to her by her adoptive father Pa Salt and doesn’t want anything to do with her family. She is too famous, too busy, too angry, and too preoccupied with chasing a happiness she can’t seem to find.

Alternating between New York City and colonial Kenya, the backstory gets underway after the sudden appearance of Electra’s maternal grandmother. As usual, Riley offers a page turning historical fiction that captures the imagination. Now there is only one book left in the series which Lucinda Riley is still writing. It has a title…The Story of the Missing Sister. The constellation after which the girls were named has seven stars but there are only 6 adopted sisters. What happened to the seventh? Who actually is Pa Salt and is he really gone? All mysteries, cultivated in little glimpses throughout the series, will be revealed in the final book. It’s going to be hard to wait.

If you are unfamiliar with this series it is good to read them in order, starting with the title The Seven Sisters. On her website, the author outlines the real histories and characters she writes about in the books and includes pictures of her research visits as well as interesting Q & A interviews. Definitely worth a visit. Lucinda Riley’s website: click here.

  1. Great… my next read. Sounds v good. Loved all the others. Addictive is right!

    • Haha, that’s great Karen! Down the rabbit hole again, this is another really long one but I breezed through it. That’s the way her books are! Enjoy! And then we wait for the last one. 🙂

  2. I think I must start this series!

    • Yes I think you must. 🙂 At least try it. I haven’t heard from anyone who hasn’t liked it and hasn’t gotten hooked on the series. The public library has them. Do you get e-books on Libby? That’s the easiest these days. The Seven Sisters is first. Let me know what you think!
