Such a good book, probably the best in the trio was so sorry when it ended. It was truly amazing story that reminds everyone that the need to find their routes and maybe when they find them that they will find happiness, faith and love with them. ( )

It feels as if you're visiting Ireland in this trilogy and I reread it every 2 years or so.
Unfortunately this is the weakest book of the three, even though it's still a nice book to read. It's just that the first two have such strong and distinct characters and Shannon and Murphy seem very nice, and very ordinary. The mystery element is there, but not strongly present.
Still... a very nice book. Personally I think that's the problem with Nora Roberts: she has written so many books that you start comparing her with herself instead of other people...

The story of Shannon and Murphy *sigh* Murphy is one of my favorites.

This trilogy is a wonderful story of family and Ireland, of loss and love, of forgiveness and joy.
In this third and final book of the series, the interactions between the sisters and their brothers-in-law, the uncle/aunt relationships with the babies,the friendships and connections among all were included and I loved those as well as the romances and babies.

This one by far is my favorite. Maybe because this sister came from the states. ( )

The incomparable Nora Roberts brings this magnificent trilogy to a highly satisfactory conclusion with BORN IN SHAME, and it is a pleasure to have characters from the previous books developing together.

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?
