Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning This book is an absolutely wonderful end to a fantastic trilogy. One has to wonder where Nora Roberts gets her talent from. This story follows Shannon Bodine, and her ensuing love affair with Murphy. Roberts manages to capture the anger, the betrayal, and the absolute pain of having everything you know shaken about so that Shannon has no idea who she is or where she came from. in an odd twist it is the male character in this book who professes his love for Shannon, almost from the begining. What follows is a story about hardship, family and forgiveness. An absolute must read for any romance fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This is one of my favourite books, though I haven't brought it out in a while. Nora creates a vivid image of Ireland, it's culture and people. The story is rich in it's emotion between the sisters, and the complexity of the addition of the youngest sibling, Shannon. The relationship between the main characters is lovely; Murphy is one of my favourite male characters in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Born in Shame This book was a great conclusion to the "Born in" trilogy. I loved the idea of having a sister that joined the family in Ireland from the states. Must read Born in Fire and Born in Ice first!!

Editorial Reviews

“America’s favorite writer.”—The New Yorker“Nora Roberts’ concluding novel in her [Irish Born] trilogy won’t disappoint readers who’ve been tantalized by the hero in the two previous books....Her knack for crafting a good Irish romance could have kept this series going indefinitely.”—The Romance Reader“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.”—Publishers Weekly
