ah Nora. A super fun chic book for an Irish woman of art to read! Book 1 of the trilogy. I love a quick girlie read from time to time...the unrealistic but tickle your heart love story that races like the pulse of a newly found lover. I particularly enjoyed the description of the land of my blood. Well met. And I further savored the language of the glass blowers passion. I will finish the trilogy on these cold and rainy, very Cork-like, evenings.

Interested me enough to read the second and wait for the third.

I thought it was good, but I preferred the next two books more. So, to anyone who felt the same, keep reading!

Enjoyed the great storyline, in the tradition of Nora Roberts. I thought the main character was a little "rough around the edges" but that was part of the charm, I guess.

I listened to the audiobook. The Irish brogue was at times difficult to understand for my French ear.
