Entertaining contemporary romance
<P>The townsfolk of Gormloch, Ireland mourn the death of long time innkeeper Angus O¿Brien. Especially saddened by Angus¿ death is Moya Mahoney, who helped the septuagenarian run his establishment. Neither Moya nor Angus had nearby family, so their relationship seemed more like a father daughter. That is why the will is a shocker. Everyone expected Moya to inherit the bed and breakfast, but instead it went to an American relative businessman Rory O¿Brien. <P>Unlike Moya¿s ardor for the B&B and its pub, Rory decides to build a factory. His plans cause an uproar, as the townsfolk do not wish to see the sight of their ale and storytelling disrupted by some wealthy American even if he is Irish. As Moya and Rory war in a clash of gender and cultures, they fall in love, but neither trusts the motives of the other. <P>DAUGHTER OF IRELAND is a warm contemporary romance that sparkles with the magic of the Erin countryside. The story line provides a glimpse at an modern day Irish village and the intrusion of an outsider who seems more like a virus to the natives. The lead couple may at first appear different, but both share many traits that interfere with the potential of a long lasting relationship. However, what makes Sonja Massey¿s tale a fun read is the secondary cast of players that inhabit this Kerry County village. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
