They’ll search the world to find her.

The six D’Aplièse sisters have each been on their own incredible journey to discover their heritage, but they still have one question left unanswered: who and where is the seventh sister?

They only have one clue - an image of a star-shaped emerald ring. The search to find the missing sister will take them across the globe - from New Zealand to Canada, England, France and Ireland - uniting them all in their mission to complete their family at last.

In doing so, they will slowly unearth a story of love, strength and sacrifice that began almost 100 years ago, as other brave young women risk everything to change the world around them.

What a brilliant story

This was reverting, unexpected, informative and wonderfully human.
I did not want it to come to an end.
There are so many open ends that there will be another book next year! Can’t wait for Pa Salt’s story!
Brilliant! The writer is a genius!

Really enjoyable 7th novel.

I really enjoyed the narrator. So many characters, so many voices. I read criticism re the accents. Someone even said that it wasn't a NZ accent but an Australian accent. absolutely incorrect! I'm Australian and that WAS NOT an Australian accent. I love how all the characters from all the other novels were brought in but it didn't try too hard. The historical story was really interesting. I felt like I'd been on a wonderful journey. Can't wait for the next one.

Oh that Kiwi accent 🤦‍♀️

Great story but the kiwi accent was horrific (perhaps I’m bias being Kiwi but it was an Australian hybrid accent at best....)

Loved it. Great story

My only struggle was the narrator's kiwi accent however her Irish accent was beautiful and most of the story was in the Irish accent. Another great historical fiction portraying Irish history. As a kiwi with Irish ancestry I really enjoyed this book.

Fantastic!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Missing Sister! I was worried that this buok had such high expectations to live up to - but it was brilliant, so much research has gone into it. Being a Kiwi myself the New Zealand accent in the audible version was quite hard to listen to, but maybe we really do sound like that 🤣 The only disappointment wasthat it’s not the end of the story and I will be in suspense for another year!

Enjoyable and frustrating

I have enjoyed the latest book as again I am taken back In time to discovery as history that I new little about. Though I did yell at the ending, at least there is a date.
My major frustration was with the narration.. The New Zealand and Australian accents were hard on the ear and did not ring true.
It would have been good if all the original narrators could have voiced their characters. To many completely different voices spoilt the image from the other books.
The use of old and out of date slang for modern Australians and New Zealanders is cringeworthy. It is like the author got a list and shoved them in.
There remains inconsistencies between books. Once again Aly’s age keep changing. There are several inconsistencies through the series and is very poor editing.

Mix of History & Fiction, but drags a bit

I love the Seven Sisters series & was so happy to see this one appear in Audible. I love the mix of History with the fictional characters life! I'm addicted & need to see this through to the end to finally know who PA Salt is, but this one dragged a bit for me... the character Mary (also known as Merry?) was not my favorite & I was so annoyed with her by the end of the book. It felt like this book dragged on a bit. I loved how the others were structured. Hope the next book isn't as annoying. But I will anxiously await the next book in the series!

I was very disapointed.

I have read many of this author's books and the complete "Sisters" series. Not only did this book just end with telling that another book would be out in 2022, I did not care for the story or the main character. She was very inmature. I do not expect I will waste my money on the next book.

No, I do not want to wait for another year!!

The story as always is will written with little lead ins that keep you reading, but the end says the next part will not come out till fall next year. We waited a long time for this part. It doesn't seem fair!!!!

Performance

I have loved this whole series but this performance has disappointed me as this is not read with a New Zealand accent, the narrator has an Australian accent. I'm fond of Australians of course but we do have quite different accents. This was hard to shake off but the performance was well done otherwise.

not worth waiting for

I have listened to all 7 Sisters books. Until the very end of the 7th I thought that was all there was. Several could have been combined together as they were dragged out and repeated over and over. This one was the worst. Could have easily been told in half the book and the other have devoted to Pa's story. What a crummy way to sell more books. I will not be purchasing the 8th book. I will never read or listen to another book by this author.

Amazing !

This great book is best when read after the other 6 sisters books. I had to wait for it to come out and enjoyed the coming back of all the sisters life's, this was wonderful!
I enjoyed every minute of reading it with a lot of smiles on my face!!
With thanks to the author of whom I've read all her books now, with most pleasure.

Simply the best!

I have read all the other missing sisters books on my Kindle this is the first one I have listened to on audible. It was so well narrated and being Irish myself and living in England for many years I fully understood the history. This story is certainly different to the others and was wonderful to see all the sisters united in their search for Mary who finally ended up in Ireland.
You do have to have read the previous novels as this ties up some threads for those books. I was disappointed that I now have to wait till 2022 to find out Pa Salt’s journey.
Having read all Lucinda Riley’s books now she has an amazing talent putting together a personal story linking to the facts of the time involved. Her attention to detail Is second to none!
I know I have a waiting game to hear about Pa Salt’s life and his involvement with each of the adopted sisters ….. I can’t wait!

Absolutely a dream of a book

There is nothing I can say which is negative apart from….it ended!!

This not a book I’d usually go to but I fancied something different.
I’m glad that I did.

I can’t wait the next book to arrive and follow the story.

There were times I cried and times I laughed. Thankfully I was alone or my family would have thought I was a crazy person

And incredible story, highly recommend it

Masterful as always - farewell Lucinda Riley

As I was listening to the last 35 minutes of this amazing book I heard of the very sad passing of Lucinda Riley. What a gifted writer of fiction. I’ve travelled the world with her. She will be missed by all who loved to read her work. May she Rest In Peace. May her family be granted all the courage and strength they need at this time. Thank you Lucinda.

Fabulous journey

Well what a fabulous journey this book takes the reader on. However, I wrongly assumed that this would be the last in the series of the Severn Sisters. By the same token, I can see why it is not. I have loved every one of the Seven Sisters books and this one is truly amazing. Have got nothing done because of being drawn to occupying myself with this audio book. It is well read to the point that I can see them all in my mind of imagination. Highly recommend this book

Answers and more questions

This book!
Two years ago we went on holiday to Ireland. lots of museums and guided tours. we learned so much about Irish history and now listening to The Missing Sister and having this story told makes the things we learn even more real.
This book is fiction, but the horrible things that happened years ago wasn't. But this book tells a story of how it was and how many lived and struggled during those years.

I love how Lucinda is able to take me on a journey time and time again. Her descriptions are so good, she make me feel like I am present when the story is told. Always keep me hanging on,wanting more. Very touching, emotional,sad,heartbreaking,raw, sweet,funny, exciting..the list goes on.
Another sister book made me cry. And the end -cliffhanger- both happy and sad tairs. I now know who the missing sister is.. and wow, I'm scared to spoil anything if I go in writing. all I can say is tat I can't wait for Atlas, PA Salt's story!!

Amazingly the saga keeps getting better

I have been engrossed in the mysterious and world-ranging saga of the Seven Sisters since the first book.
This, however, holds even more surprises right to the end. No spoilers here, I want everyone to enjoy the unfolding tale just as much as me!
