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.

    "One of Nora's Best"

    One of my fave books in one of my fave trilogies by Nora. You can tell it's pre-big brother 9-11, but the characters and story are true and lovely. It's a joy to read, but not sappy; and you feel good for all the right reasons when it's over. Daniels does a decent job with the audio narration, but is a little weak on adult male speaking English with an Irish accent. Worth a credit; don't debate, just grab it if on sale!

    "Another Great Trilogy"

    Nora Roberts has done it again. She brings Ireland alive and the characters real.
    Patricia Daniels narrates with such passion and feeling. She is truly awesome.

    "Ireland revisited"

    I had read this years ago when it was first released. It was a joy to revisit with the audio version. The narrator's use of local brogue added to Nora Roberts great characters.

    Story
    "My first and last Nora Roberts book"

    Cliche, cliche, cliche. The only reasons I listened until the very end are because a: I paid for it and b: I wanted to see if it could get any worse. Fifty pages into this story about an American woman who, after a sudden divorce, gets away from it all by moving to her grandmother's cottage in a picturesque Irish village, inhabited only by a weeping female ghost(!), I was really hoping for a surprise twist like a murder or at least a mugging - but no luck. When Roberts eventually introduces a puppy character, given to the woman as a symbol of his everlasting love by the gorgeous Irish pub-owner, who she loves but doesn't want to give completely of herself to because she's been so hurt by her ex, I knew all was lost. But, really, I knew it way before that. Also, really cheesy sex-scenes.

    Story
    "HORRIBLE NARRATION!!!"
    Where does Jewels of the Sun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty close to the bottom only because of the narration.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patricia Daniels?

    That's easy. Susan Ericksen. She actually performs and doesn't just read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I decided to go back and read some of the earlier books that I had read before. I read this one in paperback and enjoyed it so much I decided to listen to it. Big Mistake. This narrator sounds like she's just reading it with absolutely NO emotion. I don't know if I'll be able to suffer through the other two in the series.

    "A jewel"

    I loved the story . The narrator was stiff except when she brought the characters to life.
