    "Good book in a trilogy"

    This was my least favorite story in the trilogy. Having said that i still really enjoyed the book. You could almost visualize the scenery and feel a part of it. My only disappointment was that there was no twists or areas that left you wondering like in the first two books of the series. Story line was ok, narration was pretty good, the whole series was great. I don't think I would listen to this book as a stand alone book but it was a nice finish to the series

    "i loved this whole series."

    i loved this whole series, but this was probably my least favorite book. i feel like there could have been more explanation/exploration of the "dream sequence" but overall, very entertaining.

    Story
    "Rich History mixed with human issues!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Born in Shame to be better than the print version?

    I have only listened to this book so I can not compare the written with the audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Each character was interesting in there own way and gave debth and interest to the story and cultural/family issues.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy all of this authors books on tape. The narrator/s have great acents and even better inflection.

    Story
    "Ah, Ireland"

    Of the three in this trilogy, I was surprised to find I liked the other two better. The best one for me was "Born In Ice." They all strike chords in one, but for some reason this one didn't with me. This could be for a lot of reasons having to do with me, not the books. I read this one last.
    The narrator was wonderful, and I really enjoyed listening to the performance. I have read other Nora Roberts books in print form, and I am considering getting them through Audible so I can "hear" that Irish voice for real.

    Story
    "So, So LR Georgia"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The last book in the trilogy was ok. The main character Shannon made me want to kick her at times.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

    I am a big fan and enjoy Nora Roberts very much and would gladly try other books.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiacre Douglas?

    I liked the narrator very much.

    "A good start to the Born In Series"

    I really enjoyed Born in Shame as well as the other 2 books in the series. Having a natural Irish voice for a series set in Ireland makes the listening easy and enjoyable & Fiacre Douglas does an amazing job making the story come to life. Nora Roberts does not disappoint in her descriptive writing, as I can picture the main character in all her different surroundings. The romance is not unrealistic; both characters are very believable. Definitely my favorite of the Born in Series.
