A talented graphic artist, Shannon Bodine's life revolved around her job at a prestigious New York advertising agency. But her world was turned upside down whe she learned the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon. Respecting her late mother's last wish, Shannon reluctantly traveled to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melted away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed. And amid the lush Irish landscape steeped in mysticism and legend, she discovered the possibility of a love that was meant to be...

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

I read this one just as fast as the other Born in Trilogy books. The reason for that is because they are soo good that you don’t ever want to put them down for a second in case you forget with where you were reading at. Trust me that has happened before and I was like -.- NOOOO THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!! Let’s just say that I wasn’t a very happy person at all. So I recommended with this trilogy to only put it down for a couple of seconds before going back to reading it or you won’t be a happy person like I was at certain points.

But other than that this book was such a good read. This time we start out with the youngest Concannon sister who isn’t really a Concannon since she was a child born out of wedlock. Or at least almost born out of wedlock. Anyways this girl is like a mixture of Maggie and of her own self. This one to most seemed like a rush job but I love it nonetheless. Nora was doing a different thing for it.

Shannon, unlike her other sisters, didn’t want to stay in County Clare, Ireland she loved it back home even though while she is in Ireland she has been painting much more than what she did back home in New York. Shannon is such a good mix for the Concannon family and it’s also just a really good book. Much like the other two. I once again give a Nora Roberts book five stars for an excellent writing and character development and just being awesome with this book.

This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.

About Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the discipline of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.

She worked briefly as a legal secretary. “I could type fast but couldn’t spell, I was the worst legal secretary ever,” she says now. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.

Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.

Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they’ve expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.

Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl. She has raised two sons. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.

Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her “America’s favorite novelist.”
