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.

    " Favorite of Nora's books"

    My introduction to Nora Roberts' books many years ago, found at a hospital book sale for less than a dollar. I have re-read the series so many times over the years. Unfortunately I did not enjoy the performance. I do listen to the audio version mulltiple times, but only because love the story, not for the performance.

    "Great, mystical, New England storyline."

    Love hearing the narration as it's a wonderful enhancement to the written word. Can't wait for the next chapter in the Three Sisters storyline.

    Any additional comments?

    This is another great trilogy from Nora Roberts... in fact I'd say it's my favourite. I loved the bit of mystery, magic, suspense and romance.
    I like the introduction and interactions with the main characters of the following books with out taking the spotlight away from the main character of this book.
    Once you listen to this one, it's impossible not to get the others.
    I highly recommend this trilogy!

    Story
    "Interesting, but hated male lead."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I loved the story and the premise. It was original and sucked me in. However, while it was an adorable and well written book, I struggled with some of the characters, especially the male lead, Zack.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    The male lead, Zack. *spoilers*
    He knows that she is a battered woman. That she went through some horrors by the hand of a man, even if she hasn't told him, however, he insists that "she will come to enjoy his touch" when she displays FEAR at being touched. He gets pushy with his insistence that they will sleep together. Then, later, when he finds out she faked her death and is still legally married, he gets angry that he slept with a married woman, yells at her for lying to him, calls her stupid, and treats her terribly. Even after hearing about the horrible things her husband did to her, how hard she had to work to escape, he won't touch or kiss her until she is legally divorced. I struggled with that, ALOT. Not only did I not like him as a male lead, I found him annoyingly pushy with her boundaries and I just kept thinking that she could do better. He knows that she is emotionally unstable and needs counseling and he is just piling on the crap for her to handle.


    What didn’t you like about Sandra Burr’s performance?

    I struggled with her voices for several characters. Mia sounded like a 60 year old woman when in fact she turns 30 in the book. Zack's voice was a bit annoying for me as well, but that is probably because I just didn't like him as a character.


    Was Dance Upon the Air worth the listening time?

    Yes. The tension built was delicious and had my tingling in anticipation of when it would happen.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I would suggest it to any Nora Robert's fans, and any fans of men-in-uniform romances, supernatural romances, and romances that include a woman getting her life back together and becoming a stronger woman. I will warn that the topic of spousal abuse is discussed and displayed pretty intensely in the book, and if you struggle with topics like that, it might be one to skip.

    "Excellent story"

    The story held my attention throughout. The characters were believable and personable. The narrator was excellent. The writer is brilliant and creative. She was able to create images in the mind, with the narrator brought them to life. Where is 3 Sisters again? I am ready to go!
