Maia D’Apliese is one of six girls adopted by a wealthy bachelor, raised in a mansion on the shores of Lake Geneva. When “Pa Salt” mysteriously dies, each daughter is given a clue to their ancestry. The Seven Sisters is the story of the eldest, Maia, and the search for her birth family in Rio de Janero. Involved is a tragic love story, an old aristocratic family, and the creation of the famed Christ the Redeemer statue.
At the beginning of this novel, The Seven Sisters definitely had a chick lit feel, and irked me as being a little sappy. But the more I delved into the narrative, I found myself appreciating the backdrop of the statue and the mystery of Maia’s background. By the end, I was hooked. The author leaves you hanging at the end – making way for additional novels about the other sisters. I guess I’m going to have to read those, too!
