Description

The Sun Sister is the sixth epic story in the Seven Sisters series by the number one international bestseller Lucinda Riley.

To the outside world, Electra D'Apliese seems as though she is the woman with everything: as one of the world's top models, she is beautiful, rich and famous. Yet beneath the veneer, and fuelled by the pressure of the life she leads, Electra's already tenuous control over her state of mind has been rocked by the death of her father, Pa Salt, the elusive billionaire who adopted his six daughters as babies from across the globe. Struggling to cope, she turns to alcohol and drugs to ease the pain, and as those around her fear for her health, Electra receives a letter from a complete stranger who claims to be her grandmother . . .

In 1939, Cicily Huntley-Washington arrives in Kenya from New York to nurse a broken heart. Staying with her Godmother Kiki, a well-known member of the infamous Happy Valley set, on the shores of beautiful Lake Naivasha, Cicily meets Bill Forsythe, a notorious bachelor and cattle farmer with close connections to the proud Maasai Tribe. When disaster strikes and war is imminent, Cicily decides she has no choice but to accept Bill's proposal. Moving up into the Wanjohi Valley, and with Bill away, Cicily finds herself isolated and alone. Until she discovers a new-born baby abandoned in the forest next to her farmhouse . . .

Moving from the frenetic atmosphere of Manhattan to the magnificent wide-open plains of Africa, The Sun Sister is the sixth instalment in Lucinda Riley's multi-million selling epic series, The Seven Sisters.
