Set in New York City and Gormloch, Ireland, "Daughter of Ireland" is an exquisitely crafted tale of two strong-willed people, each entrenched in their own beliefs and neither willing to give an inch. At least, not at first. Moya Mahoney and Rory O'Brien find themselves at odds over the pub and land left to Rory by his uncle, which happens to be the only real home Moya had ever known. Rory sees this as an opportunity to not only expand his corporate empire, but to bring jobs and security to the townspeople. Moya sees it as a total destruction of everything she has ever known, loved and holds dear.
Sonja Massie has created a totally believable story with two lead characters who had me laughing at times, while at other times pulled hard on my heart, for both Rory and Moya had had less than happy starts in life. How they manage to compromise over their feelings of distrust and turn them into feeling of true love and passion that will last a lifetime is a story that must be experienced.
Ms. Massie's portrayal of rural Ireland and its people was neither overdone nor glossed over. Her vivid characterization had me expecting Rory and Moya to step from the pages at anytime. I only wish Ms. Massie had more romantic stories on backlist. For now, "Daughter of Ireland" is headed for my keeper shelf and I can't recommend it highly enough.
For those who would like to read more by this author, I recommend you look up the Savannah Reid mysteries, written under the name G.A. McKevett.
