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.

    Story
    "Way too sappy"

    Why did I suffer all the way through this silly story? It's told entirely from a woman's perspective, desperately trying to convince women that men think as Aiden does .... Oh dear! I take full responsibility that I kept going ... That I had hope the story line would improve. It didn't.

    "Thoroughly enjoyable,"

    I enjoyed the story, the setting, the fantasy, the ending. I truly enjoyed the Irish brouge, which I cannot furnish when just reading rather than listening. And I love that is the first of a trilogy, so I can continue!

    "Sweet and Relaxing"

    A very easy listen, this book was one to listen to while relaxing and laying in the sun. The narrator had a fabulous Irish accent but did not distinguish her voice between characters, even the men had the same pitch as the women.

    "Great story, stilted performance"

    Great story as usual for Nora Roberts. However, the performance was not to my liking. Stilted fluency due to trying too hard for clear diction. Performers Irish accent was actually better to listen to. Would not buy audio books from this performer again.
