Na de dood van haar vader vertrekt Tiggy D'Aplièse naar de afgelegen bossen van Schotland om daar te doen wat ze het liefste doet: werken met dieren. Ze komt terecht op het landgoed van de intrigerende maar moeilijk te doorgronden Charlie Kinnaird. Op het landgoed leert Tiggy de oude Chilly kennen, die haar vertelt dat ze een speciale gave heeft en dat het lot bepaald heeft dat hij haar op het pad van haar verleden zal brengen. Hij stuurt haar naar het Spaanse Granada om daar het spoor van de zigeunergemeenschap van Sacromonte te volgen. Wat is haar connectie met de fenomenale flamencodanseres La Candela? Langzaamaan ontrafelt Tiggy haar exotische maar gecompliceerde verleden. Tegelijkertijd krijgt ze kans haar eigen bijzondere gave steeds verder te ontwikkelen. Maar wanneer het lot een onverwachte wending neemt, zal ze moeten beslissen of ze in Granada blijft, of teruggaat naar Kinnaird, en Charlie… De zeven zussen – Maan is het vijfde deel uit de zevendelige serie over liefde, verlies en de zoektocht naar wie je werkelijk bent.

Fifth in the Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley, ‘The Moon Sister’ is the story of Tiggy, wildlife conservationist and warm-hearted introvert. Each of the D’Apliese sisters is different with diverse skills, interests and hugely varying birth stories. Tiggy’s story alternates between a Highland estate where she is managing the rewilding of Scottish wildcats, and the flamenco world in Spain during the 1930s.
The Kinnaird Estate is a beautiful, isolated, wild place. The four wild cats move into their custom-built enclosure and Tiggy moves into a shared estate cottage with fellow worker Cal. Riley builds the Kinnaird community quickly and skilfully from new Laird Charlie to housekeeper Beryl and old retainer Chilly. It is Chilly – speaking in a muddled mixture of English, Spanish and Romani – who introduces the first hints of premonition, seeing and herbal remedies. He tells Tiggy she has healing hands. Caught up in the twists and turns of the Kinnaird family, the frictions in Charlie and Ulrika’s marriage and their tempestuous daughter Zara, Tiggy grieves for Pa Salt and is curious about her own birth family. In his farewell letter, Pa Salt tells her she comes from a gifted line of seers. She must go to Granada in Spain, to the gypsy area called Sacromonte, where she must knock on a blue door and ask for Angelina. Tiggy delays, unsure of the truth, attracted to Charlie. But when she is injured in a poaching incident on the estate, Tiggy feels upset, confused and wronged. She flies to Granada. This is a quick reminder that Tiggy, who lives the most normal, ordinary life of the sisters so far, is far from a normal girl and when times get tough, the D’Apliese wealth is ever-present.
The second storyline is that of Lucia, Tiggy’s grandmother, who rises from a tiny girl living in deepest poverty in Sacromonte to a world-famous flamenco dancer. Though Tiggy’s character and situation is appealing, I found Lucia a more difficult character. By nature energetic and stubborn, Lucia turns into a selfish, spoiled woman who rides roughshod over others. Exploited by her feckless father who keeps control of her money and career, Lucia’s few moments of caring for others were not enough for me to warm to her. But the world in which she lives, the Sacromonte community, the gypsy brujas, and the violence and depravities of the Spanish Civil War were fascinating to read. As with the stories of the other sisters, Riley concentrates most of the birth family story on a generation further back than the birth parents and there were times when I longed for less flamenco and more bruja. I also wanted to know Chilly’s story and how he came to work on a Scottish estate.
There are more teasers in this book about the truth of Pa Salt’s identity and death, but nothing concrete. There is also the reappearance of Zed Eszu, who can only be described as a sleazy millionaire cad, who first appeared in Maia’s story. What lies behind his fascination with the six D’Apliese sisters. And is Pa Salt really dead?

Weer een heerlijk boek in deze serie over de zeven zussen D'Apliese. Tiggy gaat op zoek naar haar roots en dat voert haar naar Granada in Spanje. Deze keer komt de lezer veel te weten over de zigeuners die de grotten van Sacromonte bevolkent. En over de flamenco, die door een van de voorouders van Tiggy op weergaloze wijze wordt uitgevoerd en waar zij wereldberoemd mee is geworden. Nu wacht op het boek over Electra. ( )
