Synopsis

Library Journal Best Genre Fiction of 2001

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—hailed by Publishers Weekly as “a storyteller of immeasurable diversity and talent”—presents the first book in her mesmerizing new Three Sisters Island trilogy. Set on a remote, rocky island off the coast of Massachusetts, steeped in history, romance, and legend, Dance Upon the Air is an unforgettable tale of friendship, fate, and the mysterious ways of the heart…

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 created so carefully 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 under 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. And now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women—and with the nightmares of the past haunting her every step—she must find the power to save her home, her love…and herself…

It's probably witchcraft that Roberts can turn out so many books and still create something that's sexy and charming, but in this tale, it's evident that she hasn't lost her fairy touch.

I wouldn't say this was a "bad" book, but for me it was a boring book that just never caught my interest. I did love the hero Zack, Nell was valiant and courageous, but frankly, her recovery, romance and business success just all seemed too easy with too little challenge.

Dance Upon the Air is another great book by Nora Roberts. It is another one of those books I pull out when I need to visit old friends. A great tale of great witches with not only great powers of magic but of love as well.

The characters ring authentic especially Nell who fears even the kind love offered by Zack. Readers and reviewers, at least this one, will anxiously await books two and three in Ms. Robert's Three Sisters Island Trilogy...
