Inhaltsangabe

After the death of her father - Pa Salt, an elusive billionaire who adopted his six daughters from around the globe - Tiggy D’Aplièse, trusting her instincts, moves to the remote wilds of Scotland. There she takes a job doing what she loves: caring for animals on the vast and isolated Kinnaird estate, employed by the enigmatic and troubled Laird, Charlie Kinnaird. 

Her decision alters her future irrevocably when Chilly, an ancient gypsy who has lived for years on the estate, 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 to Granada in Spain. 

In the shadow of the magnificent Alhambra, Tiggy discovers her connection to the fabled gypsy community of Sacromonte, who were forced to flee their homes during the civil war, and to ‘La Candela’, the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation. From the Scottish Highlands and Spain to South America and New York, Tiggy follows the trail back to her own exotic but complex past. And under the watchful eye of a gifted gypsy bruja, she begins to embrace her own talent for healing. 

But when fate takes a hand, Tiggy must decide whether to stay with her newfound family or return to Kinnaird and Charlie....

Familiengeschichte

wie immer in ihrem Stil eine Familiengeschichte als Zeitgeschichte gepaart mit einer Liebesgeschichte. Sehr spannend erzählt.

Achtung! Suchtgefahr

Ein wunderbares Buch, fesselnd, dicht und mit einer tollen mehrschienigen Geschichte. Schade dass es zu Ende ist.

Very enjoyable but...

I am halfway through listening to the book and am enjoying it, as I've enjoyed all of the other Seven Sisters books. It is, in fact, very long (as they all are), but for me, as a listener, the longer the better. As always, we are taken back and forth from the present day (with the 5th sister, Tiggy), to the past (with her gypsy ancestors in Andalucía). I wish, however, that they had used two different speakers for this book, as has been done for 2 of the others. I.Wilde reads very well, generally, and differentiates between characters nicely, so that the story is easy to understand. Her English and Scottish accents are good (as far as I can tell), for the sections on the present, BUT I can hardly stand her pronunciation of the Spanish words so common in the sections about the past. It would have been much better to have a speaker who actually knew how (and was able to) pronounce even simple Spanish words (bruja, Dios mío, olé, hijo, Angelina... ) not to mention more complicated words and phrases. Oddly enough her voice for Spaniards speaking English (for example, the "r" sound) is more accurate than for Spaniards speaking Spanish...
