About this deal

In June 1951, while Isadora and Angelina are at the Sacremonte Cathedral, a “man, who was very tall and sunburnt, with a pair of deep brown eyes” who looked kind, but a bit sad, bought Isadora an ice cream, who then introduced him to Angelina. Kodėl buvo didelė paslaptis nuo seserų, kad Advokatas, namų tvarkytoja ir Kristijanas susiją? Ar čia jau toks gyvenimo būdas, slepiam, gyvenam mele? Peršasi mintis, kad žmogus turėjo mental problemų. Tiesiog šių žmonių praeities gyvenimas ir jų paslaptys, neturėjo jokio tiesioginio ryšio su Atlantu. Tai kodėl buvo slepiama? Ignoring the Pearl Sister, these people all fit in very well together - the timing all works out, and they show the development of Pa Salt as a person. In every instance he is caring and kind, particularly towards orphans and those who are disadvantaged. It also fits into the narrative in most cases for why he might have adopted each daughter, having met and respected their great/great-great grandmothers. Svetimų žmonių gerumas - tam tikrais momentais jau tapo juokingas. Kur tik eini, ten visi lenkiasi ir mėto galimybes, darbus, namus, raktus nuo pastatų, pinigų. Kitur siūlo opalo kasyklų akcijų, vien dėl to kad tu neliūdėtum. Viskas krenta be didelių problemų. Žvaigdžių pagalba?

The book is filled to the brim with awkward situations. Like when at the end the old guy is presented with Bear. A non-biological peepsqueek in diapers, but the son of one of his starry girls. While his grown-up biological grandson is competely ignored. But, hey, it’s all about the sisters right? Qué ganas tenía de leer esta novela ¡por Dios! Que conste que iba con algo de recelo por varios motivos: Maia: “I just had the most incredible dream! Speaking of which, do you know why Pa Salt decided to adopt us all?” If nothing else, the seventh book has set some very high expectations in terms of answers that readers will be expecting in the next book. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that the eighth book will make or break the whole series. If it can’t answer key questions, it takes so much away from the intrigue and suspense created earlier in the series. Or worse still, Lucinda realises that she’s left so many questions to answer that her only solution is to go down the Lost path: Antes de que nadie lo pregunte, este libro NO se debe leer (porque poder, obviamente se puede) sin haber leído los anteriores porque perderían toda su gracia y las muchas sorpresas que esta octava novela va revelando a quienes llegan a ella después de conocer el origen de Maia, Ally, Star, Cece, Tiggy, Electra y Merry.

Now that most people have had at least a week (or 5, depending on your language) to read the seventh book, it seems like a great time to start to theorise a bit more on what comes next. Ir jei Atlantas taip ieškojo Elės, kodėl nesugalvojo ieškoti jos brolio? Gal ji su juo susisiekus buvo? Čia suprasit ką turiu omeny. Oho, visai kaip rašytojas, įnešu intriga, kur nereikia. Before I close, I must also reveal to you that if it hadn’t been for one sentence offered by a relation of yours many years ago, I would not have been given the gift of all my beloved daughters. She saved me from despair and I can never repay my debt to her. As an expected and hoped, Atlas: The Story of Pa Salt is big, dramatic and astounding. We travel through times of loss, tragedy, war, turmoil and uncertainty. Many people are touched by Pa Salt and we learn who made an impact on this larger-than-life character. From continent to continent and different oceans, we bear witness to the keynote events that shape the unforgettable man known as Pa Salt. Whittaker and Riley takes us through moments of despair, loss, charity, connection, friendship, opportunity, love, survival, fate, chance, adventure, tragedy and triumph. Sometimes you need to surrender to the magic of it all as Whittaker and Riley capture the essence of the real Pa Salt via his eventful journal entries filtered through this incredible narrative. Readers of The Seven Sisters series will know that Lucinda has supported Mary's Meals for many years through www.thesevensistersshop.com, and the money raised so far has sponsored the Assembly of God Mission School in Liberia, ensuring that its 500 children are fed each day.

This is a very very special series, one I will never forget; I can’t ever imagine finding another that will live up to it. The perfect end to a perfect series… From the very beginning the story flowed beautifully between present day on the Titan and the retelling of Pa Salt’s life through use of his diary. This was so cleverly executed that not once was I confused as to what time period I was in or who the narrator was; covering such a vast time period and cast of characters this can’t have been easily achieved. Also glad I watched - and would recommend you watch - Harry's recap of the seven previous books to remind you of who was who and where and when! There is surprisingly not too much rehashing in this novel. The story in the book has a time-skip from 1919 to just before Christmas 1943. Given the UK setting, we would expect Bo and Elle to appear relatively soon after their departure from Bergen to Scotland. We meet few likely candidates for Pa Salt, who we would expect to be a well-mannered and reserved early to mid twenties male. However, following the trend from the previous two books, we would expect Pa Salt to feel some sort of affection towards Flora - from what we’ve seen, she neither rescued nor had a relationship with him beyond being his employer. Perhaps he was just impressed by her drive to get the best for her children, no matter what?

What are the other books in the Seven Sisters series? 

serija pasakoja apie septynias iš skirtingų pasaulio šalių įvaikintas seseris ir jų įtėvį Atlantą. Per visas serijos dalis įdomiausios buvo sesių šaknų paieškos po skirtingas šalis ir kultūras, o paskutinėje dalyje apie tėvą – kaip jis visas tas mergaites susirinko ir kas jį siejo su jų biologinėmis šeimomis. I’ve decided I’m not going to divulge too much in regards to the content of this novel. As a massive and long-standing fan of Lucinda Riley’s Seven Sisters series, I am respectful of those who haven’t read this series or final issue yet. What I will say is that I was both excited and nervous going into Atlas: The Story of Pa Salt. Harry Whittaker is definitely a son to be proud of for fulfilling his mother’s legacy and I’m sure she is looking down on him now, nodding in approval. This book spans roughly 80+ years and many continents, so as expected it is full of drama. I love the premise of this series and although it requires the reader to throw plausibility out the window, overall it is an entertaining series and this final installment concluded with all of my questions being answered. That being said, I struggled a bit with a few of the plot points, but even more so with the dialogue which was unrealistic and felt robotic especially in the current timeline particularly the conversations between the sisters, but I also had this issue with the dialogue in “The Missing Sister”. I rarely shed a tear when reading novels, but confess this is one book that had me sobbing at the end. I think the culmination of this much-loved series coming to a close, the passing of the author before the end and the final parting scene which had all the feels got me! Atlas: The Story of Pa Salt was a most fitting tribute a once in a lifetime series and dearly missed author.
