About the Author

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestselling In Death series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.


Even the reigning queen of romance novels is entitled to an off book. A superior reading might have endowed this story with the needed depth, but Patricia Daniels was not equal to the task. Jude Murray is in Ireland to escape her life in Chicago and possibly find herself in the bargain; Aidan Gallagher runs his family's pub in Ardmore. He's done his running but beneath the surface is a sense of destiny unfulfilled. Then he meets Jude and understands everything. Unfortunately, Daniels's near monotonic reading makes it difficult to lose oneself in the already fanciful story. Her concentration on proper diction is negated by her giving every word in a sentence equal weight, thus rendering the sentence meaningless. Her Irish accent is better, but with that she loses her diction skills. Despite the popularity of the author, libraries would do well to pass on this one.--Jodi L.

"America's favorite writer."-The New Yorker

"Roberts, a storytelling wizard, is at her best here, creating a fantastic setting for the continuing romantic tales of the Gallaghers."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
