The first book in Roberts breathtaking trilogy. Set in western Ireland, the lives and loves of the Concannon sisters - modern women of ambition and talent. A very easy read, hated for it to end. Excellent!
Reclusive Mary Margaret Concannon is a gifted artist and glass blowing is her medium. Maggie's work has caught the eye of gallery owner Rogan Sweeney who travels to County Clare to offer her a deal. Rogan wants to feature Maggie's art at his World Wide Galleries. If she will give him exclusive rights to her work, he will make her rich. Money has never been at the top of Maggie's wish list, but it would certainly help her and her sister pay her family's debts, and allow them to move their mother, a bitter and demanding woman, into her own home and away from theirs.
This is the first book in the Concannon Sisters trilogy. Maggie is an interesting character who is very upfront with her feelings and tells it like it is. She can be very defensive about her art and her life, which sometimes grated on me. Occasionally I just wanted her to calm down and step back. Rogan is wonderful. He knows what he wants and will work to get it. They strike sparks off each other which leads to a highly appealing relationship. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
