Book Review: Born in Fire (Born in Trilogy #1) by Nora Roberts

Three modern sisters bound by the timeless beauty of Ireland…

The eldest Concannon sister, Maggie, is a reclusive, stubborn and free-spirited glassmaker—with a heart worth winning.

Margaret Mary is a glass artist with an independent streak as fierce as her volatile temper. Hand-blowing glass is a difficult and exacting art, and while she may produce the delicate and the fragile, Maggie is a strong and opinionated woman, a Clare woman, with all the turbulence of that fascinating west country.

One man, Dublin gallery owner Rogan Sweeney, has seen the soul in Maggie’s art, and vows to help her build a career. When he comes to Maggie’s studio, her heart is inflamed by their fierce attraction—and her scarred past is slowly healed by love…

My Thoughts:

Maggie is the product of poor decisions among her parents. A loveless marriage left Maggie’s heart guarded and determined to expect a life alone. A glass maker with a bright future, she meets Rogan Sweeney, who turns her art into a large success. Rogan challenges Maggie professionally and eventually personally. That tight grip on her heart slowly begins to loosen and her fears fade away.

Nora Roberts shows the story in Ireland, full of vigor and love, she amazes with her ability to lead you on Maggie’s journey. The ability to feel the emotions and trail along with wild adventures to Dublin, Paris and Venice, it keeps the reader captivated. Wanting more and to grow with Maggie as she learns to confront her biggest fear. Love, and marriage.
