Publisher's Summary

When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she's finally found refuge from her abusive husband - and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago.But even in this quiet, peaceful place, Nell never feels entirely at ease. Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café - and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd.But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him - for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she's so carefully created could shatter completely.Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.Now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women - and the nightmares of the past haunting her every step - she must find the power to save her home, her love...and herself.

Superb listen for those interested in pagan themes

This is the first in Nora Roberts Trilogy of the 'Three Sisters Island' series, and it a truly mesmerising story from book 1 right through to book 3. The storyline takes you through the main characters history up to the present time, from the darkest of their days to the best of them. It has a deeply pagan theme which followers of this lifestyle will recognise many of the spells written into the books and this must reflect the authors following or research into the old ways.

I would tend to lean towards the research side as most spells within the book end with the all too familiar line ' so mote it be ', which many followers of the wiccan path will know is never used in true spell casting. It is amazing how many people have picked this up from programmes like ' charmed ' and believe it is the right way to end a spell, but that is poetic licence for you.

The books must be heard as a series otherwise you will miss out on the continuing theme which ends in a superb climax at the end of book 3.

Very highly rated series, and if you enjoy this then you would enjoy many of the other 'trilogy' books from the same author.
