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.

"Once again, Roberts proves that she's a top-notch romance writer. This enchanting and empowering tale is...terrifically entertaining." (Booklist)
"A magnetic hero, a heroine who finds herself, and some memorable secondary characters weave a mesmerizing tale of witchcraft and magic." (Library Journal)
Absolutely loved it. Nora Roberts is an excellant writer. I love audible as I can download to my laptop and listen while I am roaming the internet.
this is the first book i have listened to that has a female for the reader and i was a little uncertain at first but WOW was i mistaken she is amazing
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.
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!
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.
The dialog between Nell and Zack seemed very juvenile and corny. The narration between the dialogue was quite as silly. I am not sure if Zack's lines being read by a woman made it seem mot awkward or if it really just was written that way. The over all story was good. The diversity of voices done by the narrator was limited and sometimes hard to follow just who she was speaking as.
