This is the 3rd book of the 'born in' trilogy set in Ireland. It's my favorite of the 3 followed closely by Born in Ice (probably because these are my favorite 2 of the 3 sisters!).Shannon is the stepsister they found out about and she just discovers her 'father' wasn't her 'real' father on her mother's death bed then right after the funeral the private investigator shows up at her door with the news that her'family' is looking for her. So she heads off to Ireland not really wanting to or knowing why but being very independent she has a hard time with the decision to give up her career and stay for someone she loves and who loves her or going back to her career and continuing to climb the ladder. She also struggles with continuing to use her gift for painting/art in the advertising world or the artistic world as well a being scrappy enough to hold her own against her sisters' mother a total you-know-what! tough girl yet soft hearted.

A talented graphic artist, Shanon Bodine's life turned upside down when she traveled to Ireland to meet the family she never knew she had. And amid the lush landscape, she discovered the possibility of a love that was meant to be.

This book is apart of a trilogy. I have not read the other two which are Born in Fire and Born in Ice. But they are on my list as a must to read later on.

Graphic Artist Shannon Bodine has worked hard to get to the top of the corporate ladder. But her world is shaken when she learns that she was the result of her mother's secret relationship with Thomas Concannon. She also learns that she has two sisters living in Ireland who have been searching for her. Shannon soon travels to County Clare to meet Maggie, Brianna and their families. Getting to know them is a slow and awkward process, but meeting their next door neighbor makes the trip easier. Murphy Muldoon is a hardworking farmer who loves the land. But one look at Shannon and he knows he has met the woman of his dreams.

This is a very satisfying ending to Nora Roberts' Concannon Sisters trilogy. I loved Shannon's relationship with her sisters, especially Maggie. I also enjoyed Murphy's confidence that Shannon was the woman for him. My only problem was the past life story which didn't work for me. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Nora Roberts writes in a way that makes one feel they know the people she is writing about. You share the feelings of those people. I enjoyed all three of the books in this series. LaVerne

This third and final novel in Roberts's Irish trilogy is the story of Shannon Bodine. Shannon's life is rocked by an emotional earthquake when she learns the identity of her real father. Obeying her late mother's last wish, American Shannon travels to County Clare, Ireland, to meet the sisters she never knew she had. Warmed and comforted by the bond that grows between her and her sisters, her heart is lured by the charm of the Irish countryside and tempted by the attraction of horseman Murphy Muldoon. Murphy takes one look at Shannon and knows that she is the woman he's waited for all his life. But Shannon is a practical woman. Will she open her heart and mind to the timeless, magical bond that connects them? Or will she reject fate's plan and leave Murphy to return to her life in America?

I very much liked the first two books of the series, but this last one disappointed me. However it has all the elements of the first two- vivid and loving descriptions of Ireland and multi-dimensional, unique male protagonists. If you're into the whole "reborn lovers from ancient magical times, flashbacks to those past lives, omg, we were totally meant to be together" thing, you'll like it. I... didn't, so much. I love fantasy, don't get me wrong- I just can't stand the cliched, new-age-y way Nora Roberts writes fantasy.

The third book of this trilogy and was one of the better one of all of them. Loved the whole series.

I've dreamed of Ireland. Of a land where there was magic in the mists, dark, brooding mountains that held secrets, and green fields that rolled into forever. And that is what I found when I went there.

I've talked with many of my friends and family who have been to Ireland. Ivariably those roots that were transplated from that country in the past all felt a tug when they stepped onto Irish soil. I know I did. There was a recognition, a sense of knowing, even before you took the first breath, just what the air would taste like.

There's a beauty in the little village with its pub and crooked streets, in the bustle of cities like Galway, in the cliffs that tower over the ocean, and the fields sleeping under the mists. There are simple things, like the farmer leading his cows across the road, and the grand ones like the ruins of a castle standing centuries old beside the winding ribbon of river.

There are stone circles dancing in a farmer's filed, and fairy hills in the forests. And just as magical are the flowers blooming in the well-tended garden or the taste of fresh scones at tea time. Simple things, and grand ones. That's what I found in Ireland.

For Born In Shame, the last book of my Born In trilogy, I wanted to bring a woman, an American, to Ireland for the first time. To give Shannon Bodine her roots, her family, and a romance that would suit the contrasts and endurance of Ireland. To give to her that magic of simple and grand things.

She did a great job in putting these things into her trilogy. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

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.
