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.

Listen to the other books in this trilogy, including Book 2, Heaven and Earth; and Book 3, Face the Fire.

    "Brilliant!"

    I've read and listened to this trilogy many times over and this is my favourite of the three books. The story line and character development is brilliant and the voices are true to their characters. This is where the village milieu and interrelationships that are the true basis for the whole trilogy are set out. Beautiful writing and clear understanding of small communities!

    "One of my all time favorite trilogies"

    Nora Roberts is my favorite author and Three Sisters Island is my favorite trilogy. The reader does a great job with the narrative and with Nell but she ruins the romance with Zachary with her creepy voice.

    "First in the Sisters trilogy!"

    I loved this book. The reader kept my attention and was believable enough that the characters came to life. I found myself picturing it like a movie in my head, probably not a good idea while driving!ha! I look forward to the next book in the trilogy!

    "Good"

    I enjoyed the use of the magical & mystical, I found the narrator handled the characters very well. Liked the twist of drama. Very entertaining, enough so that I have bought the trilogy. Looking forward to the other 2 books.

    "What was she thinking?"

    The book is about an abused woman who ran for her life. So when she picks up with another guy, guess what? Yep, the author crafted another guy who is as controlling as the one her heroine left. Granted, he doesn't hit her, but the whole control thing is, well, creepy. The concept was interesting, and the plot had its good points but the characterization was lacking. Good narration.

    "Great story, but..."

    I really disliked the narrator. She makes the three quite young lead female characters sound incredibly old. Mia, Nell and Ripley are in their late twenties, and yet the narrator makes them sound like they're in their sixties at least.

    Nora Roberts does it again. I could not quit lustening, took my fire everywhere in the hoses and car with me so I could hear it .
