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.
