Irish reading

In celebration of the green month, I have been reading Nora Roberts. Her Born In trilogy takes readers on a romantic tour of western Ireland, with stops in Dublin and a few other locations in Europe. Through her writing I can hear her characters speaking the Irish brogue and wish I was sitting with them in their local pub eating stew, drinking a cold beer, and listening to the local music.

Born In Fire takes the reader on a journey through the life of Maggie Concannon, an artist on the brink of discovery. Coming from a family with dark secrets and little love, except overflowing from her father and sister, Maggie is scared to step into life and take a chance on love and her own talents.
What an excellent way to begin the month- dreaming of lush green hills, rocky shorelines and love just around the bend.
