The Seven Sisters (Nr. 5)
After the death of her father - Pa Salt, an elusive billionaire who adopted his six daughters from around the globe - Tiggy D'Aplièse follows her instincts to the wild Scottish Highlands. There she takes a job doing what she loves; caring for animals on the isolated Kinnaird estate, employed by the enigmatic and troubled Laird, Charlie Kinnaird.
Her decision alters her future irrevocably when Chilly, an ancient gypsy who has lived for years on the estate, tells her that she has inherited a sixth sense from her ancestors, and that it was foretold that he would be the one to send her back home to Granada in Spain . . .
In the shadow of the magnificent Alhambra, Tiggy discovers her connection to the fabled gypsy community of Sacromonte, and to 'La Candela', the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation.
From Spain to South America and New York, Tiggy gradually traces her complex past. And under the watchful eye of a gifted gypsy bruja she begins to embrace her own talent for healing.
But when fate takes a hand, Tiggy must decide whether to stay with her new-found family or return to Kinnaird, and Charlie . . .
