In the aftermath of the harrowing events that follow, Ally pursues the clues her father left her to the icy beauty of Norway. There, she begins to discover how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived there over 100 years before.

Terrible pronunciation of Norwegian words

I really liked the storyline, but I did not enjoy the narration. I'm not found of entire books read in faux accents, and I cringed every time the narrator pronunced a Norwegian word! (And there are a lot of them, and not even hard ones). I guess that a non-Norwegian listener won't find this as bothering as me, but this ruined a lot of the listening experience for me, at least in the first part of the book. Aside from this, it was interesting to listen to a book set in Norway.

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE NARRATION! IT RUINS THE STORY

I read the first book in this series "The Seven Sisters" and wanted to continue with the story of the next sister.... BUT I haven't even finished the book yet, and I CANNOT STAND the narrator!!! I've been trying to figure out which one is the main narrator, and went online to each of their websites and listened to their voices, so I'm pretty sure the narrator who does the girls' voices is Noreen Leighton, but not positive. Anyway, she is simply awful! She tries to do the sisters' French accents, but narrates with a clipped, German-like cadence. It's like hearing fingernails on a blackboard! I know the story will be good as the first book had a very good story, but WHY did either Audible or the author pick this completely terrible narrator??? It's so difficult to listen to her on Audible! I'm not sure what voice(s) the other narrator is doing - I haven't heard yet, I don't think. Unless, Rachel Lincoln is the girls' voices and Noreen Leighton is the boys. Not sure, but whoever is doing what, I cannot STAND listening to the voices! Please don't have them do ANY other books, especially from this series. I won't be able to download them from Audible, but will have to buy the book and read it for myself - which I don't want to do as I do like to listen as I'm driving. Just don't use these narrators anymore!! UGH!

Bad accents

I have listened to several of Lucinda Riley's books and enjoyed them very much. While I enjoyed the story in The Storm Sister, I do question the artistic licence the author gives herself with regards to the main character's implied blood ties to a famous historic character.
I was not really impressed with the narration. I thought that the French accent was unnecessary and didn't really add to the story, rather the opposite in fact. And the Norwegian part was a disaster! I am a native Norwegian, and the pronunciation of the Norwegian words like Mor (mother), Far (father), Kjære (dear) and location names made me cringe every time. The Norwegian language has 3 letters that don't exist in English - æ, ø, å. The narrator got them frequently confused, and repeatedly used the sounds in words that don't even have those sounds. I realise that Norwegian isn't a widely spoken language, but this doesn't justify not doing your research and making sure that words are pronounced correctly.

Silly story about lightweight glossy people

What would have made The Storm Sister better?

Narration more in keeping with the character; the poor french accent is unnecessary and makes the character sound vacuous and pathetic

What could Lucinda Riley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Created people with depth and character

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Noreen Leighton and Rachel Lincoln ?

Juliet Stevenson

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Irritation and disappointment

Totally entertaining

I think this is the best overall audio I have listened to. It is wonderful story line. I felt I knew each character and their stories touched me. I was able to be completely absorbed in the richness of their personalities because of the superb narration. I am so pleased that I still have the rest of the sisters lives to delve into. I nearly did not persevere with book one as the narration was terrible in parts but am so glad that I did

A fantastic story within a story

I enjoyed this story immensely,the second sisters quest to find her ancestry is as full of surprises as the first novel in the seven sisters series. This series is a historical story within a story ,with a third layer emerging within which all is contained,hinting of the mystery of the father figure, a very postmodernist approach.I look forward to reading about the other sisters as the fabric , of old and new ,of past lives and present lives is joined together to create a whole .
