From Amazon

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?

From Publishers Weekly

The final installment in Roberts's Ireland-based trilogy about three sisters who are brought together by a packet of old love letters, tells the story of Shannon Bodine, the American-born half-sister of Maggie (Born in Fire) and Brianna (Born in Ice). There are few surprises here?the characters and basic plot have been deftly set up in previous novels, but the story takes on an unexpected poignancy when Shannon reluctantly accepts Maggie and Brie's invitation to visit Ireland. Shannon plans a quick trip, just long enough to satisfy her curiosity about her sisters and the father they shared. What she hadn't planned on was finding herself, and the man from another lifetime who haunts her dreams. With prose that's lively and compelling, Roberts' creates exceptional characters whose relationships with each other develop and grow, and live on in the reader's imagination and heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Nora Roberts' Best! Jan. 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Shannon Bodine knows how quickly life changes. Her father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a year earlier and now her mother was dying of cancer. Shannon didn't know how she could bear to lose both of her parents so close together, but her mother's dying words shattered Shannon's carefully ordered world. Her real father was Thomas Concannon, a man her mother met and had an affair with in Ireland years ago. Shannon was devastated and grieving when the private investigator found her and informed her that she had two sisters living in Ireland - and they wanted to meet her. Shannon immediately rejected the offer to visit and returned to her work as a graphic artist in New York, but she couldn't focus and nothing seemed important. Before she knew it, she found herself on her way to Ireland and a family she had never met...
From the moment Murphy Muldoon saw her, he knew that Shannon was the one for him. He had been dreaming of her for years and now she was finally here, in the flesh, all he had to do was make her his. But Shannon was strong and stubborn and Murphy found that he had his work cut out for him. Oh, she was attracted to him, he could see that well enough, but she resisted his efforts to court her and refused to believe that she could have a life there in Ireland with him as a painter. But Murphy was stubborn too, and this time, he wasn't about to let her go...
This is the third book in the 'Born in' series and it is my favorite of the trilogy. I loved Shannon and Murphy's characters and enjoyed seeing the people from the other books pop up in this one so I could see how they were doing. Roberts must have a special love for Ireland because she paints such a beautiful picture of the country and makes it almost a character in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glowing and Real Dec 3 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
You can always tell when the author is stoked by the environment and the people of the country she is writing about. This trilogy which includes Born in Fire and Born in Ice is outstanding. The dialog is stunningly real, the people literally lodge in your heart and mind with their realism and charm and the descriptions of the scenery and of Ireland itself is just magnificent. There are times when you laugh outloud, grind your teeth, feel yourself tearing up and vicariously enjoying the yummy pastries that Brianna bakes up. There is real heart in these three tales and of them I particularly liked this final book of the trilogy. I think it is because Shannon is American born of Irish descent and her somewhat "ballsy", hip and smart approach to life teaches the two Irish born sisters some real nitty gritty style in dealing with their despicable mother Maeve who has done her best to try to ruin their lives with her bitterness and failure.
The three males who love these three sisters, especially Murphy, who is beautiful on every level, simply charms the heart of even the most jaded reader. Often, throughout the trilogy one wishes "if only" all males were like him. Rogan and Gray are equally charming but their male ego struggles to accept their burgeoning love for Maggie and Brianna, respectively are difficult and frustrating at times. Murphy, the patient, handsome, talented and humble neighbor and friend simply shoots his love arrows straight from the heart to Shannon.
Like the Light of Ireland that bathes that land of enchantment and gaelic mysticism with its special glow, so too does the lore and magic dazzle the reader throughout the pages of these three books and make this trilogy a put on the shelf to reread especially when one's spirits are bogged down by the daily grind.
Thrilling and wonderful stories that flow in a river of light from the imagination, the experiences and the talent of Nora Roberts, again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending to a great trilogy Nov. 28 2001
By Sophie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Born in Shame" is the final installment in NR's "Born in" trilogy. I enjoyed it very much, and found it to be well-written and intriguing.
Maggie and Brianna Concannon, now both happily married, have finally found their long-lost half-sister, Shannon Bodine. With Brinna's persistence, Shannon is talked into coming to Ireland to meet her sisters. At first Shannon is cold and distant, and does not get along with Maggie, but she finds herself drawn to this beatiful land, her sisters, and to Murphy Muldoon.
Shannon embarks on a journey of self-discovery which leads to her acceptance of a love that was meant to be. Murphy is a lovable hero, and his romance with Shannon is beautifully written.
Unlike some of the other reviewers, I really enjoyed the mystical aspects of this story. I thought that the story of doomed lovers from long ago added depth and meaning to Shannon and Murphy's relationship.
This entire trilogy was a pleasure to read, and this final book wound it up superbly. Don't miss out on any of these books, they are fabulous!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read Sept. 23 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Born in Shame", the third and final installment of Nora Roberts' "Born In.." trilogy was a pleasant surprise. I had read other reviews saying the story was weak and did not add up to the other two, I disagree. I absolutely loved the book. It was very entertaining and full of passion.
The story begins with Shannon Bodine, the long-lost sister of Maggie and Brianna. Shannon is a successful advertisement artist, content on being single and enjoying the good things in life. Shannon's mother Amanda, on her death bed, reveals that Shannon is the illegitimate daughter of the Tommy Concannon of Galway, Ireland and that she has two sisters. On the day of her mother's funeral, Shannon discovers that her sisters hired a private detective to find her. A letter from Brianna, inviting her to visit Ireland prompts Shannon to pack her bags and discover her roots. Once in Ireland, Shannon meets with the gentle and sweet B&B owner Brianna and the fiery, hot-headed glass artist Maggie. She also meets a friend of the family, Murphy, a farmer who falls head over heals with Shannon.
There are a lot of things I enjoyed about this novel, one being the interaction between Shannon and her sisters, especially the relationship, or lack thereof, she has with Maggie. Neither one likes the other and makes no qualms of it and that makes for some very interesting scenes. I also enjoyed the love story between Shannon and Murphy, who in the previous two novels of the series has always been a shy, friendly neighbor. It's a nice change to see him as someone with a libido, and a steamy, passionate one at that. The love scenes with him and Shannon are spectacular.
