The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding by Holly Ringland – Our Review


Our Review…

Within pages of picking up a copy of the new Holly Ringland book, ‘The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding’, I was feeling nostalgic about her internationally bestselling brilliant book, ‘The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart’. I just love her writing.

Esther Wilding is desperately grieving the loss of her beloved older sister Aura, who was last seen walking into the ocean all those nights ago. A year has passed, and the family just can’t grieve the loss of Aura without knowing what really happened to her, each family member struggling in their own way.

Shortly before her disappearance Aura tattooed on her body, seven scripts that Esther believes might provide a clue into what was really going on for her sister in this time.
Esther believes, the only way to truly know is to traverse the world in the same pattern that Aura had done before her disappearance, so Esther begins her journey from Tasmania to Copenhagen, to the Faroe Islands.

In her journey, Esther uncovers the story behind her sister’s life. The hidden pain and grief that Aura protected her family from, and the many who savoured her beauty and brilliance.

This is a book to savour; it is a magical and beautiful story about the connection of sisters and the way that life can be both beautiful and broken all at the same time.
