Star D'Aplièse is at a crossroads in her life after the sudden death of her beloved father--the elusive billionaire, affectionately called Pa Salt by his six daughters, all adopted from across the four corners of the world. He has left each of them a clue to her true heritage, and Star nervously decides to follow hers, which leads her to an antiquarian bookshop in London, and the start of a whole new world. A hundred years earlier, headstrong and independent Flora MacNichol vows she will never marry. She is happy and secure in her home in England's picturesque Lake District--just a stone's throw away from the residence of her childhood idol, Beatrix Potter--when machinations lead her to London, and the home of one of Edwardian society's most notorious society hostesses, Alice Keppel. Flora is torn between passionate love and her duty to her family, but finds herself a pawn in a larger game. That is, until a meeting with a mysterious gentleman unveils the answers that Flora has been searching for her whole life ... As Star learns more of Flora's incredible journey, she too goes on a voyage of discovery, finally stepping out of the shadow of her sister and opening herself up to the possibility of love.

The third book in the Seven Sisters series... a very good read, and again with real life characters intertwined with the fictional ones. This one is set in England... very good indeed!!

I am really enjoying the complexities of The Seven Sisters series as each sister finds out about her birth heritage. This one had particular appeal because of its associations with the Lake district and the part played by Beatrix Potter
