This is the first book in the Gallaghers of Ardmore trilogy. Roberts weaves Irish folklore into her stories in sucha a way that makes you almost believe it. Aidan and Jude Frances find their place in the 100-year-old spell that has been cast on a faerie prince and his true love.

A great summer read!

Jude Murray is not happy with her life. So she leaves Chicago and moves to Ireland for a fresh start, intending to study Irish folklore. Soon she meets the Gallaghers and is quite taken with Aidan Gallagher, pub owner and storyteller.

I was really bored with the first 100 pages. This did not seem like a Nora Roberts book. The writing was too lyrical. Finally the story picked up and the characters became more interesting. I was satisfied with the ending of this book and am looking forward to the next book in the series. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

I thouroughly enjoyed this book! It sparks your imagination and makes you want to visit Ireland! This is the second trilogy I have read by Roberts and I enjoy how each book focuses on a seperate main character. And she builds up the characters so well that you feel like you know them and really care what happens to them.

The Irish Trilogy is overall one of my favorites. This book ties up all the loose ends of everyone's story very neatly, but is my least favorite of the three. Just not as strong as the other two in character and plausibility. Still a good, quick read.

The first in a 3 part series by Nora Roberts. It leaves you wanting to get the other two books to complete the story.
reviewed Jewels of the Sun (Irish Jewels Trilogy) on
I really enjoy how Nora Roberts writes trilogies because one book is never enough to fully get to know the characters. This also gives her time to develop the characters from books 2 and 3 in the first one so she can spend more time on the actual stories later on. This book makes you want to keep turning the pages. You feel like you live on Faerie Hill and you can almost smell the flowers in Judes garden.

This is one of the best I have read by Nora Roberts, but I have a love of Irish history and lore and this is what it's all about, set in Ireland and a pretty good love story, but not mushy, mushy like Danielle Steele's books.

If you love Ireland, its places and its feeling of magic... you will certainly enjoy this book. Jude travels to Ireland to learn of her ancestry and to write about the Irish mythology. She finds a wonderful storyteller, and that is just the beginning! I highly recommend this book.

I am not a huge fan of Nora Roberts but I picked this book up because it takes place in Ireland. She describes Ireland beautifully, so much so, I want to pick up and move there as well. There are parts where I believe she reaches just to add pages to the novel. But all in all, a good book. The characters are solid, witty, and fun. Its a great summer book to loose yourself in!

This is a great Nora Roberts trilogy, she seemlessly melds reality, fantasy and magic. Every modern girls dream, to find "themself" and find it in a beautiful Irish seaside cottage with a handsome man while the air is filled with magic. This story draws you in and fills the most cynical heart with magic and hope. .

I've read a lot of Nora Roberts but this trilogy is the only set of hers that has a permanent slot on my bookshelves. Though I'm not fond of supernatural elements the taste of Ireland she has managed to evoke in these books is too delicious for me to part with a one of them. In this one the eldest of three Irish siblings meets an American psychologist who is spending some time in the area indulging in what she considers a silly desire to write. He agrees to help her with a compilation of folk tales. A romance develops, of course, but the lifestyles of the two characters have nearly nothing in common and neither of them can imagine conforming to the other's ways. The course of love is, naturally, fraught with rocks but I can overlook a lot of formulaic story and supernatural nonsense for the smooth sweet taste of Ireland.

This is the first book in the trilogy. I have all three. She is one of the best writers I know. The description of Ireland, the characters and the stories are all first class. Jude Murray comes home to her ancestors roots. She sees ghosts, talks to fairies and finds true love, all in a typical season. I couldn't put the book down.
