Publisher's Summary

Determined to reevaluate her life, Jude Murray flees America to take refuge in Faerie Hill Cottage, where she immerses herself in the study of Irish Folklore and discovers hope for the future in the magic of the past.

Finally back home in Ireland after years of traveling, Aidan Gallagher possesses an uncommon understanding of his country's haunting myths. Although he's devoted to managing the family pub, a hint of wildness still glints in his stormy eyes. In Jude, he sees a woman who can both soothe his heart and stir his blood. And he begins to share the legends of the land with her, while they create a passionate history of their own.

Emerald Isle: listen to the rest of the Irish Jewels trilogy.

    "The get away you wish you had"

    Jude does something I think most of us wish we could - I know is South Africa, get aways like this are not likely - our way of living is just different.

    You feel for her - want her to be stronger, you encourage and moan at her almost as much as the ghosts do!

    The Irish accent and the way this is read, makes the book so enjoyable - makes the characters so alive!

    Thank you both for a wonderful book!

    "Just okay."

    This is not Nora Roberts at her best. Yes its well read, its easy listening, so easy my mind kept wandering from the story. Have already bought the other two in the trilogy, and will listen, hoping the story picks up.

    "Not one of Nora Robert's Best - Really slow moving"
    What disappointed you about Jewels of the Sun?

    I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts, however this book moved extremely slow as well as the reading. I finally listened to it a 1.5x speed just to get through it. The book was mostly the main female character thinking or talking to herself. There were a few other characters in the book, but they were not involved as much as I would have liked.


    Would you recommend Jewels of the Sun to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. I will not be reading the rest of the series.


    Which character – as performed by Patricia Daniels – was your favorite?

    Darcey, even thought she was only a supporting character.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boring! It just never griped me. When I finished it I just said thank goodness. Why did I finish it? I'm compulsive that way, once I start a book I nearly always finish it no matter what.

    "TOOK ME A WHILE TO WARM TO JUDE BUT I GOT THERE"

    OF ALL THE SERIES OF NORA ROBERTS I HAVE READ OR LISTENED TO , THIS ONE PROBABLY TOOK ME THE LONGEST TO GET INTO. I INITIALLY FOUND JUDE A LITTLE BORING AND SOFT AND GREW TO LIKE HER AS THE SERIES PROGRESSED.

    "Jewels of the Sun"

    I have only finished part one and I really love this book. I have purchased the others to the trilogy as well and am looking forward to those being as good as the first.
