Ally is a strong capable woman, a sailor who is used to living in a man’s world, but when he father dies and her world crumbles she embarks on a journey of love and loss and new beginnings as she searches for her birth parents and explores her family history. It turns out her love of music might be part of her genes along with the red hair she always wanted to dye as a child, and there are other things she learns about herself as she tries to figure out the next phase of her life and how to persevere in the face of love lost. The storm sister is the second book in the Seven Sisters series. While the books can be read on their own you may want to read the first in the series The Seven Sisters first. It tells the story of Maya the oldest sister. I loved Ally and the fact that she is such a strong capable woman.
