Series Saturday – April

Hello bookworms!

I have decided to start a new monthly feature on my blog called Series Saturday. I was amazed at how many book series I had on my shelf and thought it was about time I shared them with you all. Each month I will choose one series to feature. This may be a series I have read and loved or am yet to read. This month I have decided to share a series for all the historical fiction lovers…..

This was a series I discovered when the first book was released and I instantly fell in love with the sisters and the mystery behind how the all came to be in Pa Salt’s care. I initially read each story as it was released but with a year in between each one I found I kept forgetting parts of the story. It turns out that waiting until t hey were all released was for the best as I am currently buddy reading the series with one of my book club friends. The books are quite big but the stories are beautifully told. I am currently half way through the series and I can’t wait to read the last book and find out all about the missing sister.

For anyone not familiar with this series here is the synopsis of the first book The Seven Sisters….

Maia D’Apliese and her five sisters gather together at their childhood home, “Atlantis”—a fabulous, secluded castle situated on the shores of Lake Geneva—having been told that their beloved father, who adopted them all as babies, has died. Each of them is handed a tantalizing clue to her true heritage—a clue which takes Maia across the world to a crumbling mansion in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Once there, she begins to put together the pieces of her story and its beginnings.

Eighty years earlier in Rio’s Belle Epoque of the 1920s, Izabela Bonifacio’s father has aspirations for his daughter to marry into the aristocracy. Meanwhile, architect Heitor da Silva Costa is devising plans for an enormous statue, to be called Christ the Redeemer, and will soon travel to Paris to find the right sculptor to complete his vision. Izabela—passionate and longing to see the world—convinces her father to allow her to accompany him and his family to Europe before she is married. There, at Paul Landowski’s studio and in the heady, vibrant cafes of Montparnasse, she meets ambitious young sculptor Laurent Brouilly, and knows at once that her life will never be the same again.

What do I love about this series?

Lucinda Riley has created a fantastic series and I love that we have so much to discover about the sister’s from the beginning. There’s the added mystery of where the final sister is and why she was never brought to the family home. Each story takes us to a different part of the globe and the historical stories are always fascinating. This is historical fiction written at it’s best so if you haven’t read it then add it to your list!

  1. Someone posted about this series a little while ago and it sounded interesting. I just checked and the audiobooks are on Scribd, so I will be adding them to my watch list.
