Publisher's Summary

Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

When gallery owner Rogan Sweeney comes to Maggie's isolated studio, her heart is enflamed by their fierce attraction - and her scarred past is slowly healed by a gentle and forgiving love.

©2007 Nora Roberts; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio

What the Critics Say

"The conflicts Maggie and Rogan face are refreshingly realistic and the characters themselves, well-rounded and likable, will keep readers engaged." (Publishers Weekly)
"A light, fast-paced novel set in the Irish countryside." (School Library Journal)

    Story
    "could be better"

    I like this author and her style. However, she is getting carried away with her love of coincidence. The story could stand on its own without some of the "incredible" coincidences that occur. To me this takes away from the total. I want to believe that it could possibly happen.

    "Excellent Book, very well read"

    This is the first Nora Roberts book I have read/listened to. I am usually not a big fan of romance, but I loved this book. I loved the characters, they very well rounded and complex. I also liked the detail the author put into the glass blowing and the emotions of the artist. I thought the narrator was outstanding, and I really liked the accents he used and the emotion he portrayed. The story came alive around me and I was engrossed till the end. I definitely would listen to anything else by Fiacre Douglas and I am looking forward to other Nora Roberts books.

    "Wish for a different reader"

    I like Nora Roberts, most of the time, and I think I need to actually read this book rather than listen to it. The reader drove me nuts, so much that I couldn't get through the first 45 min. I cannot really address the story because I haven't listened to all of it, I gave the story so far 3 stars because I figured that's a good middle ground.

    I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.

    "Disappointed in book"

    I normally like Nora Roberts books, but this one seemed to drag and I gave up listening to it before the end.

    "Loved it!!"

    Some other reviewers didn't like the male narrator but I disagree. I enjoyed this audiobook thoroughly. It was filled with humor, sadness and touching moments. I will definately get the next 2 books in the trilogy.

    "Predictable"

    I had hoped this one would be as interesting as her JD Robb series with Dallas the lady detective. But too predictable to keep interest alive.

    Don't waste your credits!

    "Super story"

    Loved it. My first audiobook experience. But Nora Roberts is a known entity so I took the chance. Another super story from her hand. Cannot wait to get the remaining two volumes in the series.

    "An Excellant Surprise"

    The story line, vocabulary, and all around presentation was excellent. I was expecting a mystery novel when I purchased this book, but was not disappointed and was pleasantly surprised as I got into the story.
