A mystery set in Norway

The Storm Sister: A Novel (The Seven Sisters series) Stormens søster
by Lucinda Riley (Author)

My wife is a member of a book club. Some days ago this book arrived in our mailbox.


This is part of a series about six (??) sisters where they each are the main caracter in one of the books. The reason this book caught my eye is that it plays out in Norway. It also seems to have a genealogical twist to it. Here is the information from the publisher:

“Gathered at their childhood home to mourn their father’s death, Ally D’Aplièse and her five adoptive sisters receive tantalizing clues to their distinct heritages. Ally soon finds herself in Norway where she begins to make sense of her elusive past in the second part of an epic new series by #1 internationally bestselling author Lucinda Riley.

Olympic hopeful Ally is in the midst of preparations for one of the world’s most challenging yacht races when news of her beloved father’s death shocks the accomplished sailor. Saying goodbye to the love of her life, a man her family knows nothing about, she rushes back to her family home, an enchanting chateau where she and her five sisters—each adopted as infants—were raised on the shores of Lake Geneva.

When new tragedy strikes on the high seas, pummeling Ally yet again with a terrible and unexpected loss, she turns her back on the water and instead follows her own North Star—an intriguing clue left by her father which leads her to Norway and the promise of unmasking her origins. Surrounded by the majestic beauty of an unfamiliar homeland, Ally begins to unpack the century-old story of a remarkable young woman named Anna Landvik, a talented singer with an astonishing link to composer Edvard Grieg and his celebrated musical accompaniment to Henrik Ibsen’s iconic play “Peer Gynt.”

Lucinda Riley’s captivating story brings together two resilient women—decades apart—weaving their stories into a moving examination of family, love, and identity. Learn more at thesevensistersseries.com.

    Sounds like a great story! Some years ago I saw a very powerful and emotional story of a young Norwegian girl orphaned by the plague, her mother is forced to lock her out in the weather, because the mother has contracted the plague… so the child is told to find her own way over the mountains to a relative, the movie had some story line about a ‘victory cap’… I can still hear this poor child calling “Mor! Mor”
