The Storm Sister is the second in the series and Ally's story is as terrific as Maia's in book 1. This time we are taken to Norway where Ally learns of her musical ancestors and of the love and tragedies that they suffered. True to form, though, there's never one male character that I like; they are all psychologically disastrous cads. Even the good guy has no more sense that an rock.

An Olympic yachting hopeful traces her heritage to Norway, following an intriguing clue left by her deceased father, which leads her to uncover the story of a woman linked one hundred years ago to the composer of "Peer Gynt," Edvard Grieg.

All six D'Apliese sisters were adopted as babies from far-flung corners of the world and raised in luxury by a wealthy Austrian, Pa Salt. Named after the stars in the famous constellation, the sisters knew nothing of their ancestral backgrounds but lived happy, carefree childhoods. After learning of Pa Salt's sudden death, all six sisters return to Austria, where they each receive several clues that set them on a path of self-discovery. The second book in Riley's Seven Sisters series dives into the history of Ally D'Apliese, the headstrong and athletic second sister with a passion for the sea and a gift for music. Following Pa Salt's clues, Ally treks to Norway to discover an amazing link between her ancestors and Edvard Grieg, the famous composer of the Peer Gynt Suite. The second installment of Riley's sweeping series doesn't disappoint, jumping from present-day Europe to nineteenth-century Norway and back again. Riley's talent for blending current events with detailed backstories will intrigue historical-fiction readers, while fans of Kristin Hannah and Paulette Giles will appreciate the engrossing and introspective story of belonging, heartache, and acceptance.--Turza, Stephanie Copyright 2016 Booklist
