A USA TODAY BESTSELLER From New York Times bestselling author Lucinda Riley, this sweeping and majestic tale transports you to the grandeur of the remote Scottish Highlands and Madrid torn apart by civil war as two women bound across time and distance search for the truth of their place in the world. Tiggy D’Aplièse spends her days reveling in the raw beauty of the Scottish Highlands, where she works at a deer sanctuary. But when the sanctuary is forced to close, she must take a job as a wildlife consultant on the vast and isolated estate of the elusive and troubled Charlie Kinnaird. She has no idea that the move will not only irrevocably alter her future, but also bring her face-to-face with her past. At the estate, she meets Chilly, an elderly Romani man who fled from Spain seventy years before. He tells her that not only does she possess a sixth sense passed down from her ancestors, but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send her back home. Back in 1912, in the poor Romani community outside the city walls of Granada, Lucía Amaya-Albaycin is born. Her mother is devastated when Lucía is whisked away by her ambitious father at the tender age of ten to dance in the flamenco bars of Barcelona. And while Lucía perfects her passionate performances—eventually becoming the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation—tensions in Spain boil over into civil war, forcing Lucía and her troupe of dancers to flee for their lives. As they travel in search of a safe haven, Lucía’s long-held dream of going to New York may be in grasp. But to pursue it, she must choose between her love for her career and the man she adores. Featuring Lucinda Riley’s “addictive storytelling with a moving, emotional heart” (Dinah Jefferies), The Moon Sister follows these two women on their journey to discover their true futures—but at the risk of potentially losing the men they had hoped to build futures with.

Another good installment in the series. I loved the backstory but felt the modern love story didn't quite have enough teeth.

This was the BEST so far in the series and I think I am down to my last one. Highly reccommend!

What's so intriguing about this book is that the setting of a Scottish animal sanctuary and estate can be intertwined with a flamenco dancer in Spain and the results were a very beautiful, incredible story.

I really liked Tiggy. I adored Charlie and fell in love with sweet Zara. Lucia was an unlikable, selfish character but she was very talented.

One of my favorite things here was how we're gently teased about Pa Salt. I need, need to learn more about him and why so much of his life is shrouded in secrecy. I'm so looking forward to more from this series. If you're a devout reader of these books you'll be dying to read Electra's story next!

Silly plot. Dumb dialogue. Kept waiting for it to get better; it didn't.

The next book in the Seven Sisters Series. Another wonderful story from Lucinda Riley which follows Tiggy's story from Scotland to Spain... and it was well worth waiting for! If you want to see where the inspiration for the Kinnaird Estate was taken, have a look at the Alladale Wildlife Reserve in Scotland! https://alladale.com/

Outstanding!
another win by Ms Riley. This book was extra special for me as Tiggy has always been my favorite of the Sisters. One more book to go - I can hardly wait
