Living under the rock that is Cole Valley (or the Frederick Knob-whenever that neighborhood came into being under my feet, I guess I’ll never know), I had never heard of Nora Roberts. Just in terms of statistics, that seems pretty amazing because this woman has written A LOT: some 209 novels that have spent a combined 861 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. With that many pieces of paper flying around with her name on it, you’d think I would have run into one by now. Several of her novels’ titles begin with the word “Irish:” Irish Rebel, Irish Thoroughbred, Irish Rose, Irish Hearts, etc. So, as you can probably imagine, Ms. Roberts is from Maryland. Though she might be as clean as a whistle!
It’s a little difficult to tell, but from my
one google long and diligent research, it appears that Irish Dreams is a compilation of two stories: Irish Rebel and Sullivan’s Woman.
The woman who was reading this seemed to be completely entranced by its pages. I hear there might be a little romantic sexy sexy time in there. Maybe she was on one of those passages.
