"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)
hello ..i've been reading nora roberts books for many years and i'm a huge fan ...i have a bookshelf full of them and my eyes arn't as good and i fall to sleep reading so i love the audiables ..she never ceases to amaze me with her stories. (wow) she has an amazing imagination and this 3 sisters trilogy was the very first books i read of hers and was hooked from then on and i promice you will be too..thank you. tina...
Maybe my expectations were too high but i truly didn't enjoy this book as i have the others.
was it the narator, was it the book? I just don't know.
Humourous, but not a book I would recommend to read
I really loved this book, but I wish they offered the third book in this series Born in Shame. I might have to look elsewhere to purchase it.
I read so I can write
A good romance novel for me is one that has believable characters in believable stories. Nora Roberts does this better than most.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
If you have read any of my past book reviews, you will know that I don’t believe in spoiler alerts. And following that sentiment let me tell you that Book 1 is good. I mean it is Nora Roberts…right? However, for some reason, I didn’t love the narration. The Irish accent was, as far as this South Texas Girl would think…spot on. The problem for me, I believe was the way the narrator seemed to rush through the female dialogue, making it seem somehow, cut off and thus, withholding her expression. In some ways, it was difficult, in Book 1, for me to connect with the family, Concannon. Relatable characters are what will invest a reader into the story. Don’t you agree? In fact, I am not sure that I would have continued the trilogy, had I not already owned the next two books. What a treasure I found, though.
It was in Book 2, BORN IN ICE, and narrated by the same gentlemen I might add, that I really was able to fall in love with this family. Oh, and fall in love, I did. What an amazing surprise it was for me too; enough, that is, to want to share my experience with you. I am not sure if I adapted to the narrator’s tempo, or if he slowed his pace and dynamics, but I loved him too.
I only just completed Book 2, and between you and me, I didn’t want it to end…and so it doesn’t…on to book 3 I go!
Credit Worthy – YES!
HUGE fan of Ms Roberts work, and I adored listening to this wonderful narrator, Fiarce Douglas, who brought the story to life. Tis an old favorite this trilogy, as wild and winsome, as human and indelible as the scenery, the land, and the people of the Emerald Isle.
As ever, I was captivated from the first words to the last... Thank you ;)
Couldn't get in to this story. Narrator had a hard time depicting the emotion the author wanted to convey. The accent seems strained and overly masculine. I don't think I will finish this book unless I purchase a copy and read it my self. I will preview before purchase next time!
Slow down a little Fiacre... tried listening to it at 75% that didn't work. Read so fast.
Perhaps a written copy.
The narrator rushed through, with halting quality to his performance. When I tried to slow it down, the next slowest speed was too slow. It was quite irritating.
I really hope Nora does not choose him to read for her anymore, he is too fast,in a hurry, and no emotions don't like him
