Born in Fire is the first novel in the Irish Born Trilogy, about three modern sisters bound by the timeless beauty of Ireland from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.

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

Margaret Mary, the eldest Concannon sister, 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…

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.
