Publisher's Summary

Shannon Bodine is a talented graphic artist whose life revolves around her job at a prestigious New York advertising agency. Her world is turned upside down when she learns the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon.

Respecting her late mother's wish, Shannon travels, however reluctantly, to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melt away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed. And amid the lush Irish landscape, steeped in mysticism and legend, she discovers the possibility of a love that is meant to be.

    "The best!"

    Okay. I'm pretty well read, at least with good novels. Lol. Note the disclaimer.

    This is undoubtably one of the best written trilogies that there is. She (Nora Roberts) is amazing!

    This has to be more than 10 times that I've listened to this trilogy. This t is undoubtably the best. In fact, I'm researching to see how it stacks up with her others, as I have read many of them.

    I fully recommend them to readers.

    Narration - Fiacre Douglas - Really Good

    Wow. I loved this, but I feel cheated. In this book, we get to continue through and enjoy the lives of Brianna and Gray, and Maggie and Rogan but this one ends and I want to know what the future looks like for Shannon and Murphy.

    Write me another book Nora...

    :)

    Loved it!

    That is all!

    "Good read!"

    This is a great romance trilogy. Wish they would have had an epilogue capping all three story's. Regardless I will recommend this book to my friends.

    "Fantastic Book with Excellent Narration"

    I loved the trilogy. The narration was excellent. The Irish brogue added to the allure of the book. Excellent listen.

    "Great story"

    The reader did better with the American accents. It was sometimes hard to distinguish one Irish character from another.

    I enjoyed the story. Well written and added a nice finish to the trilogy.

    Story
    "As good as the rest of the series"

    This trilogy is vintage Nora Roberts. The characters are all interesting and I was interested to see how things would play out.

    Because it is the third in the series, I was already invested in the core characters. I already liked them and could anticipate how they would behave in certain circumstances. And I like the comfortability that comes from reading a trilogy.

    Fiacre Douglas' performance did not add to my enjoyment of the story. He is not the best I have ever heard..and considering Nora Roberts' status in the romance genre, I am surprised that the producers don't find the very best narrators for her works.

    "Loved this series & loved the narration"
    If you could sum up Born in Shame in three words, what would they be?

    Really really good ;)


    What other book might you compare Born in Shame to and why?

    Other really really good Nora Roberts books ;) lol


    What does Fiacre Douglas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accent and experience.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first I wasn't going to buy the series because of all the comments regarding the narration, but the sample was fine by me - so I went ahead, and am very happy I did. I loved the narration with an irish accent - and every part of the way he told the story. I love the way Nora Roberts writes, she always leaves you with knowledge to walk away with - I love that.

    "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
