Seven Sisters From Lucinda Riley and Atlas The Story of Pa Salt

 "Seven Sisters" is a series of novels by Lucinda Riley based on a legend about the Pleiades. The seven stars of the same name, visible in the starry sky, inspired the author to create a series about the seven sisters. The first volume was published in 2014, as Maia embarks on an adventurous journey to Rio to uncover the mystery of her family roots. "The Storm Sister" and subsequent sequels are about Maia's half-sisters. Each book tells the story of a sister and her family history. The books can also be read independently of each other. But I'm sure you'll want to read all the books once you start the first one, as all books take you one step closer to uncovering the secrets in the last book. Why were the sisters chosen for adoption? What was the reason why each of them was chosen from around the world? Why did Pa Salt give them these names? There are many questions to be answered in the series, and the key to all of them is the final book.

The latest book in the series - The Sory of Pa Salt

There is an important reason why the last book in the series Atlas-The Story of Pa Salt  has been so eagerly awaited. Lucinda Riley fell ill while writing the books and died before she could finish the last book. But the plot of the book and the fiction notes were ready. Finaly the book  completed  by her son, Harry Whittaker. The book broke sales records as soon as it was published. I had to put my name on the wait list in order to be able to read the book published this summer from the library I am a member of. There was a long list :) But it was worth the long wait as it was a book where I could find all the answers.

  Of course, like all of Riley's novels, Seven Sisters is set partly in the past and partly in the present.

About Harry Whittaker

Lucinda Riley-Harry Whittaker

Harry Whittaker grew up in the 1990s and spent his early years on Ireland's very rural west coast, where television reception was poor and there was no internet. So Harry's mother kept him busy by telling him stories. Inspired by this, Harry has also become an award-winning BBC radio presenter and a storyteller as a leading member of one of Britain's best-known improv groups. Harry and his mother captivated everyone, big and small, from the very first moment with their first book publication and the lovingly narrated »Guardian Angel« series.

What is the Pleiades?

The Pleiades is an open star cluster visible to the naked eye.  It has the designation M45 in the Messier catalogue. They are part of our galaxy, the Milky Way. They got their name from the Pleiades in Greek mythology.

Pleiades (mythology)

Pleiades Painting by Elihu Vedder, 1885, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

The Pleiades were considered fairies in Greek mythology. They are the daughters of the titan Atlas and the Oceanid Pleione. They are also known as Atlanteans because of their Atlas origin.


They were said to be virgin companions of Artemis, whom Orion followed in the meadows of Boeotia until they were transformed into pigeons ( whichPleiades) and placed in the sky as a constellation.

According to another story, they took their own lives with their sister, Hyades, before they were elevated to heaven, saddened by the death of their sister Hyas.

The Pleiades flew like doves to bring ambrosia to Zeus. They had to fly through the rock gate, through which the Argo also had to pass - the Plegades or Symplegaden. One of these pigeons paid for this flight with their lives.

Merope, the only Pleiadian to marry a mortal, was instrumental in bringing Sisyphus back from Hades, but ultimately she was so embarrassed by the union that she shone dimmer in the sky than her sisters.

Her Names:

Alkyone, Halcyone

Asterope or Sterope
