Echos of Glory by Martina Boone (5 stars) A wonderful story about relationships and how we interact with those we love, both in healthy and unhealthy ways. The setting is an archaeological dig on an island off Ireland. Met, who has just gone through a career-ending relationship disaster and the recent divorce of her parents, arrives with her mother, Ailsa, to be volunteers at the dig site. Niall, the head archaeologist and in charge of the dig, has just lost his sister in a car accident and is now caring for his emotionally damaged nephew, Adam. The characters have depth and the writing seamlessly incorporates their past stories, which unroll as we read, with their present actions and decisions. There's also some great, although tragic, Irish history included. Martina Boone is a truly talented writer and some of the truths Meg discovers are truly profound and beautifully written. Meg and Niall are believable characters. Both are damaged people who are compassionate, because of their past painful experiences. They, like all of us, sometimes second-guess their own actions in trying to help those around them. Very likeable characters. Clean with a few really good kisses interspersed throughout. But so much more than a simple romance. So much more complex to fall under that simple label. *poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

Irish Legends. A rich tapestry of a book weaving Irish history and folklore into the present day via the medium of an archaeological dig on Dursey. The author has a vivid way with words and the reader can almost see both the events of the past and the evocative present day Dursey. The characters are dealing with complex emotional issues in their personal lives; Meg with betrayal and lies from two important people in her life and Niall with the shock, guilt and grief of his twin’s abrupt death and his acquisition of a troubled teenaged nephew. The book was a smooth read with the final chapters being totally gripping. There is not a strong romance in this story (too many other things going on) but you can see that the friendship between Niall and Meg could develop that way. I was a bit disappointed that the epilogue did not include Ruben getting his comeuppance. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This author definitely knows her Irish lore and this time we get it while at a dig site. When a life altering accident happens it forces changes and emotions he isn't ready for. Along with his personal problems he also has to deal with issues on the dig site. With all of this going on it's amazing he finds a way to meet and fall in love with someone who is dealing with her own life changes but sees the pain and offers the love that is desperately needed in the midst of turmoil. Great read and like this author is loved for with the details and information provided to blend the past with the present. This author also does a brilliant job of interweaving some mystery and murder which means mayhem.
