Overview

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes the final novel in the Irish Born Trilogy—following Born in Fire and Born in Ice.

Shannon Bodine’s life revolves around her job as a graphic artist at a New York ad agency. But her world turns upside down when she learns the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon.

Obeying her late mother’s wishes, Shannon reluctantly travels to County Clare. There, amid the lush landscape steeped in legend, she meets her half sisters and their families, but she’s wary of opening her heart to them—or to their charming neighbor…

Murphy Muldoon is a successful farmer and horse breeder with a romantic streak that can turn the most trite sentiment into poetry. Soon, his striking good looks and unpretentious ways have Shannon discovering the possibility of a love that was meant to be.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The final installment in Roberts's Ireland-based trilogy about three sisters who are brought together by a packet of old love letters, tells the story of Shannon Bodine, the American-born half-sister of Maggie (Born in Fire) and Brianna (Born in Ice). There are few surprises here-the characters and basic plot have been deftly set up in previous novels, but the story takes on an unexpected poignancy when Shannon reluctantly accepts Maggie and Brie's invitation to visit Ireland. Shannon plans a quick trip, just long enough to satisfy her curiosity about her sisters and the father they shared. What she hadn't planned on was finding herself, and the man from another lifetime who haunts her dreams. With prose that's lively and compelling, Roberts' creates exceptional characters whose relationships with each other develop and grow, and live on in the reader's imagination and heart. (Jan.)

I was compelled to find out how this series ended, and it did not disappoint! Being introduced to strong headed Maggie (Fire) in book one and amazing Bri in book two (Ice - my favorite - 5 stars), we finally come full circle as the  sisters grow into their characters and their lives. If you love Ireland, you'll feel as though you're there. You'll begin to understand the way of the people and the meaning of happiness. Good read.

This is one of Nora Roberts' older trilogies. I have read nearly all of them, and enjoy her brand of storytelling. Great characters, good story. Roberts' books are a bit formulaic, but the character development is excellent and the stories themselves are great.

just as good as the rest of them. if you like the fantasy elements in her other books you will like this one but it is grounded more than her fantasy books.

I read this one just as fast as the other Born in Trilogy books. The reason for that is because they are soo good that you don't ever want to put them down for a second in case you forget with where you were reading at. Trust me that has happened before and I was like -.- NOOOO THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!!! Let's just say that I wasn't a very happy person at all. So I recommended with this trilogy to only put it down for a couple of seconds before going back to reading it or you won't be a happy person like I was at certain points. But other than that this book was such a good read. This time we start out with the youngest Concannon sister who isn't really a Concannon since she was a child born out of wedlock. Or at least almost born out of wedlock. Anyways this girl is like a mixture of Maggie and of her own self. This one to most seemed like a rush job but I love it nonetheless. Nora was doing a different thing for it. Shannon, unlike her other sisters, didn't want to stay in County Clare, Ireland she loved it back home even though while she is in Ireland she has been painting much more than what she did back home in New York. Shannon is such a good mix for the Concannon family and it's also just a really good book. Much like the other two. I once again give a Nora Roberts book five stars for an excellent writing and character development and just being awesome with this book.

I was left hoping that Nora Roberts would add just ONE MORE to this adventure. Alas, I will make sure I read whatever she writes. This was a great trilogy, make sure you start with #1, or if you didn't - - make sure you read the first two. Always a great read. Hard to put it down. Thanks Nora.

This was the best book in this trilogy. While all were very good, this one brought all of the story together and told the story of the third sister plus the fairies, witches and dragons. This volume covered the love within the family and the love of the father. It is also hard to put this book down and is a fast read. My only regret is there are no other books to follow these three.
