Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Roberts (Dance Upon the Air) popularized the romance trilogy, and here she offers up the second installment of her newest trilogy, a conventional saga about three witches who must right the wrongs of their ancestors in order to save their homeland, Three Sisters Island. Ceremonial candles, iris petals and a sprig of rosemary set the scene for magic and romance, but it will take more than mood lighting and witchcraft to lend an air of amiability to the novel's heroine. Hard-edged Ripley Todd is one of the island's two police officers the other being her brother as well as a temperamental witch in denial of her powers. When paranormal researcher Dr. Mac Booke visits the island, Ripley greets him with her customary hostility ("I didn't know they gave out degrees for the study of crapola"). Nevertheless, Mac, a self-proclaimed "rich geek" with a Jimmy Stewart-like affability and an athlete's physique, pursues Ripley romantically and professionally. A brief, overly dramatic encounter between Ripley and a possessed, blood-thirsty reporter adds a touch of suspense, but the novel's finale is hardly deserving of all the buildup it receives. Although Roberts is not in top form here, her deft use of metaphor and charismatic hero are sufficient to hold even the most reluctant reader.

Three Sisters is a small, rocky island off the coast of Massachusetts. Legend has it that the island was once a part of the mainland. Back in the late 1600s, during the Salem witch trials, three sisters, good witches all, known as Fire, Earth and Air, conjured the island and made it a haven against persecution. Unfortunately, the sisters did not fare as well as their island. All three were doomed by unfortunate relationships and a misuse of power. Before the last sister died she cast a spell to keep the island safe for 300 years. At that time she prophesied a reunion of three sisters, descendants of the original three, who would join together to redeem their ancestors, right the wrongs of the past and save their home from destruction.
Fast forward 300 years to Three Sisters Island. Ripley Todd is the town's deputy sheriff and she's an earthy, practical, no nonsense kinda gal - not at all the type one would peg for a witch. And make no mistake, Ripley is a witch although she tries very hard to deny her powers. Handsome, scholarly MacAllister Booke comes to the island to research the legend and to interview the one inhabitant he knows possesses magical powers - Mia Devlin, owner of the local bookstore cafe, and direct descendant of the original sisters. Booke has studied, recorded and witnessed the impossible for over 12 years. "He'd interviewed witches, ghosts, lycanthropes, alien abductees and psychics. Ninety-eight percent of them were delusional or con-artists. But the remaining two percent...well, that kept him going." Imagine his surprise when he discovered that Three Sisters Island is the home of three witches, all descending from the original line - Nell Channing Todd (Ripley's new sister-in-law), Ripley and Mia.

Paranormal romance, and especially witches are my favorite kinds of romances. I guess I watch too much Charmed. This novel is the second in a series about three witches descended from three sisters who escaped the Salem Witch Trials by creating there own island.
Ripley was my favorite of the three sisters, and this installment of the series is my favorite too. Ripley is funny, tough, and beautiful. Her sense of justice is what makes her a no nonsense deputy sheriff. Ripley's love is a real "opposites attract" story.
Macalister Brooke is a nerdy professor of the paranormal who comes to the island to study the legend, and the new witches. Ripley wants nothing to do with his research, or her gifts as a witch.
Mac and Ripley seem so unsuited for each other, but they are so right together. I love they way Ripley always knows what Mac is looking for (he looses everything).
The magic is more important in this book as well, but it is not silly. Very sensationalized, but not silly.
A great romance from my favorite writer.

The second in Nora Roberts wonderful Three Sister Island Trilogy, "Heaven and Earth," takes us back to that wonderful little island just off the East coast of the USA. Ripley is a strong woman, as she says "My inner woman is lean and mean..." Well thats Rip for ya. A dedicated cop, surving along with her brother as law and order on Three Sisters Island, Ripley has given up that part of herself that see things that others do not. Now it is Ripley's turn to face what hunts her "sisters" and her home. Ripley will find that love will drive her to protect those she loves, the man she loves with her life if necessary. The question isn't wether or not Ripley is strong enough to fight, it is if she is strong enough not to fight. Ms. Roberts creates for us a world in which it isn't the magic of spells and potions that must win this battle...but of the heart. This is Ripley's fight and she's a woman with a temper who isn't afraid to fight, but can she fight with heart instead of the spells and potions she has forsaken for many a long year?

This was a superb book. I started teh trilogy with this book and i do not regret it at all. Roberts does a great job presenting love,compasion and justice in it's most elemental yet most powerful ways. Ripley is truly a heroine. She's very down to earth, and stubborn as a mule, but you really love her from the 1st moment, b/c she's real she feels and bleeds and loves with an intense immensity. Mac is a perfect hero. He's not the perfect "Stud" as in many romance novels, he's so very real, and yes he's handsome to the bone, but he's not perfect which makes him even more appealing. He forgets things all the time yet is so sensitive so smart. He doesnt feel threatened by Ripley's authority and respects her. He doesnt mind her taking control, but he's no fool. And the Magik in the novel was greatly presented. I've read many things from the Wiccan and kept myself informed with their rituals and way of life and i beleive that ROberts does a great job at portraying many real things inside the fantastic. In short, I loved this book, from the cover to the back! I would give it 100 stars if i could.

I think Nora Roberts best books are her trilogies. She has a great gift for describing and bringing to life the bond and love between family and friends. This trilogy is no exception as far as that, however, I felt that Heaven and Earth was a little weak in the plot department.
I will not go into the plot since others have already done so, all I will say is that the ending was a little weak and the villain was actually recycled from the first book ( Dance Upon the Air ) which I thought lacked imagination and while it's something that I would expect from other authors, it's just simply unnaceptable in a Roberts book. Also, the supernatural or paranormal, if you will, part of the story was at times a little hard to follow.
What I loved about the book was the family bond and the love between the three friends Ripley, Mia and Nell. Also the characters,especially Mac, were interesting and real even if the plot sometimes wasn't and it was also nice to see Nell and Zack, the characters from the first book. The romance between Ripley and Mac sizzled and I loved the fact that the tough Ripley wasn't so tough after all when she found herself in love with the adorably absent minded Mac. I think the characters save this book and the whole trilogy from mediocrity.
I recommend this book to fans of Roberts and for those who have read the first book in the trilogy since this one would probably be hard to follow otherwise. :)
