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)
completely enjoyed the twists and turns. Nora Roberts again presents a multifaceted story that weaves thru three people focusing on one. I can't get enough of these trilogies. already downloaded the next set of three. superb!!
Fantastic! Awesome! Wonderful!
A fresh beginning
A very compelling story, bringing all facets of life together.
This certainly met my expectations. One of my favorite parts of was when Nell told Zach she would do whatever it took to become His wife.
Nora Robert has written another great story.
Have been in the good habit of downloading a Nora Roberts trilogy to my iPod before woodsy vacations, in the event of indoor weather, (with no TV or internet!) and I am not disappointed that I took this one along. Several cool rainy days with knitting needles clicking wiled away listening to this trilogy about strong women with special powers and the men they attract, set in what could be any remote coastal town.
I most remember the scene where Nell's estranged husband came to repossess her... you will have to listen to find out.
She is able to speak in so many styles - from formal to quite colloquial. She makes it easy to know which character is speaking at the moment.
Nora's stories always stir me, on several levels.
Looking forward to another period of unobligated and unconstructed time where I can turn on the narration, fairly uninterrupted, and live another of Nora's trilogies.
I am not a lover of romance novels but I am loving the Cousins O'dwyer series so I decided to try the three sister trilogy. Big mistake! I have no intentions of listening to parts two and three because part one was awful. The story was dull and cliche but worse than that was the reader. Listening to Sandra Burr read is like listening to a preschool teacher reading to a group of two year olds. I gave up on this series mainly because of her voice. I'm turning these back in for my credits. Too bad I can't get back the time I wasted listening to this awful book. I would probably still recommend Nora Roberts later novels for those who like romance but if Sandra Burr is the reader you might want to either skip that one or get the paperback.
yes i would recommend this book. i love the mix of magic, friends & love. great story with a happy ending yet open for another story.
nell who found her strength
