From Publishers' Weekly:

The first installment of Roberts's newest trilogy set on Three Sisters island invokes the sensitive characterizations and magic that distinguished her previous trilogy (Jewels of the Sun; Tears of the Moon; Heart of the Sea). An enchanted island off the coast of Massachusetts, Three Sisters was formed as a sanctuary by three frightened witches fleeing persecution. Although the witches found peace on the island, each of them entered into an ill-fated relationship and died tragically. Now their descendants Nell Channing, Ripley Todd and Mia Devlin have to break the pattern set by their foremothers, or the island will sink. This first book focuses on Nell, a newcomer to the island who escaped her abusive husband by staging her death. Nell is unaware that she's a witch, but she is instinctively drawn to the island and secures a job as a chef in the caf? owned by Mia. Between coping with her bleak memories and deciding whether she can give her heart to Zach Todd, Ripley's brother and the island sheriff, Nell has little time to digest the discovery that she's a witch. In the end, however, Nell will have to come to terms with her newfound powers so that she can fight her all-too-demented husband. 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. (June 5) Forecast: No stranger to bestseller lists, Roberts triumphed in 2000 with the release of two hardcovers and eight mass market paperbacks, seven of which sold in the millions. National radio advertising and print advertisements in USA Today will ensure that her latest hits the big time as well. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Launching the "Three Sisters Island" witch trilogy, Nora Roberts's Dance Upon the Air (Jove. 2001. ISBN 978-0-515-13122-2. pap. $7.99) is the story of Nell Channing, a woman on the run from her abusive husband, who is unaware that she is a witch. When she meets witches Ripley Todd and Mia Devlin, Nell begins to discover her untapped powers-and falls in love with Ripley's brother, the local sheriff. Full of magical ritual and incantation, Roberts's take on modern witches is a fun, romantic romp. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
