Ally D'Aplièse is about to compete in one of the world's most perilous yacht races, when she learns of her adoptive father's sudden, mysterious death. Rushing back to meet her five sisters at their family home on Lake Geneva, she discovers that her father - an elusive billionaire known to his daughters as Pa Salt - has left each of them a tantalising clue to their true heritage.
Ally has also recently embarked on a deeply passionate love affair that will irrevocably change her destiny. But with her life now turned upside down, she decides to follow the trail that her father left her, leading her to the icy beauty of Norway.
There, Ally discovers her connection to a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who sang in the premiere of Peer Gynt, over a hundred years before. As Ally learns more about Anna, she also begins to question who her father really was. And she starts to wonder why the seventh sister is missing . . .
The Storm Sister is the second book in Lucinda Riley's spellbinding the Seven Sisters series.
