Few artists have left a more indelible mark on America's musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. Listeners will experience a soft, personal side of Charlie Daniels that has never before been documented. In his own words, he presents the path from his post-Depression childhood to performing for millions as one of the most successful country acts of all time and what he has learned along the way.

With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Alan Smyth?

As much as I have enjoyed Nora Roberts over the years, I just couldn't finish this one. The narration is awful.

Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Smyth’s performances?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He read so fast, I felt like he was in a hurry to get it done and out of his way. Not a fan of the narrator at all.
