    Good story!

    Historical Christian Fiction.

    The story is set in Charleston, SC around the time of the Great Charleston Earthquake of 1886 as well as Ireland.

    The story was a little slow at first, but eventually I really enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the dialogue between Rose and her house staff (former slaves who wanted to stay on). Patricia Strefling perfected the southern dialogue of the staff! I LOVED it! I was also very pleased with the cleared gospel message in the story!

    The descriptive nature of Patricia's writing in this book is great. It transported me back to what society life must have been like in Charleston in the 1800's. The description of Ireland a little less so.

    The only drawback to the book was the amount of typos. However, I was able to overlook if you like good clean reading with a great message.

    Rose was a character so many could embrace. You could not help but to love her and cheer her on. I wanted to jump into this book and hate Capt . Wyatt . However, he won my heart . I was so glad hhe did. Great heartwarming story.

    Highly Recommended!

    reland Rose, titled from the heroine of the story..It’s quite a weird name.;)

    I always love historical romances..and this time the story is set in Ireland and Charlestone.

    It’s quite fascinating really, how she found love in Captain Wyatt..especially the story behind Wyatt and his first love, I won’t say more..but it’s really a wonderful coincidence, and just like Rose I’m so into the lovers letters, even if it sounded as a one-sided-conversation…

    Honestly, at first I found the story rather a little slower…I also hate the fact how Wyatt seemed to act nonchalant about Rose…but at the end..everything makes sense.

    Rose’s character is truly amazing! Even her life was put into chaos, she still believes in God..even if the whole society would ridicule her, she still did her best to protect others first. With this book, I felt more connected to her than anyone else, from her sweet moments as a rich Captain’s daughter, to her being a widow, to the time she’s been look down by her former friends until she have to let go of the child she cared for..Through ups and downs, her character become strong. And I think, it’s one thing that should remind us to be like her.

    This book proves that whatever happens, even if you have nothing left..He has still his plans stored for you…You just have to trust Him. More than anything else, Ireland Rose is pack with history, romance and a wonderful lesson about faith and love that any reader could bury in their heart…

    Ms. Patricia Strefling did a wonderful job in weaving histories of Ireland and Charleston into a unique and provoking story…

    If you’re interested with a little drama, historical romance….grab this book now!..:)

    A sweeping historical triumph

    An epic journey. Loved the sweeping story, Ireland Rose takes you on a journey through the streets of Charleston to the green hills of ireland. From the proud moments of her growth to the bittersweet moments that comes in everyone's life. A truly beautiful character inside and out. A highly recommended read.
