born in shame
concannon sisters trilogy #3
A talented graphic artist, Shannon Bodine's life revolved around her job
at a prestigious New York advertising agency. But her world was turned
upside down whe she learned the identity of her real father: Thomas
Concannon. Respecting her late mother's last wish, Shannon reluctantly
traveled to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melted away in
the embrace of the family she never knew existed. And amid the lush
Irish landscape steeped in mysticism and legend, she discovered the
possibility of a love that was meant to be...
A true classic for me finally concludes....again. I remember when I first read this trilogy I read them out of order, starting with this one. This time I read them in the correct order and I still loved every page.
I wished more fiercely that Tom Concannon was still alive. I would have loved, as Shannon might have, to see them dance around a relationship, but the story wouldn't have worked as well if he hadn't passed in the beginning. Shannon's not my favorite sister (that would be Maggie, I think - hard to choose), but she's a great character anyway. Murphy, on the other hand was my favorite of the men of County Clare. And as always, I'm sad to leave the Concannon sisters in Ireland. Maybe someday Nora Roberts will revisit and show us Liam and Kayla all grown up!
