Interweaving two captivating stories of romance and intrigue, humor and faith, The Emerald Isle wraps up the multi-colored threads of Angela Elwell Hunt's The Heirs of Cahira O'Connor series in a page-turning conclusion that will satisfy both spirit and heart. Resisting her confining, traditional role as a king's daughter, fiery-spirited Cahira O'Connor dreams of practicing her bow, not of capturing a husband. But when Norman invaders challenge the borders of the Kingdom of Connacht, Cahira finds both the one man who could win her heart and an irresistible calling to fight for the land and people she loves. To Kathleen O'Connor, the story of Cahira's deathbed vow was nothing more than a legend - until her research revealed that it was true. Now, in Ireland for the wedding of her best friend Taylor and his fiancee, Maddie O'Neil, Kathleen struggles to fit in at the O'Neils' farm, Ballyshannon, and focus on her research into the life of her ancestor Cahira. There among Ireland's emerald hills, Kathleen finds far more than she could ever have dreamed - including her own unexpected destiny as an heir of Cahira O'Connor.… (mer)

This book goes between the story of Cahira O'Conner in the 1200's & Kathleen, the author of the series in the stories, in the late 1900's (this book taking place in 1999). 2 love stories & lots of history!

The sections of this book are Kathleen, Cahira, Patrick, Colton, James O'Neil, Rathcroghan, & Ballyshannon. (Main characters & locations)

The story starts in New York city on Thursday, June 17, 1999. The author says that she's a Christian, and sometimes hears the still, small Voice. She was about to cross the street when she heard the Voice tell her to wait...why now? The light changed & she waited for something terrible to happen. A girl commented on the book she had been reading, but didn't want to give away the ending...since they didn't know each other, how could she hold anything against her? The girl tells her how the book ends. They decided to eat together, & a new friendship was formed!

The new Irish friend was Maddie O'Neil & when Taylor arrived it looked like they would get along together. The waitress suggested hot tea, but the author ordered diet soda. She ordered her usual sandwich, but Taylor ordered the same as Maddie. Maddie had never heard of Cahira O'Connor, but it was a common Irish name. Taylor described who she was & described the subjects of the books Kathleen had written. He also talked to Maddie about his favorite author, Rudyard Kipling. Kathleen drank her soda, while listening to the conversation she had heard before. Couldn't someone else have played matchmaker?

Why do people fall in love? Taylor invited Maddie to go with them to the museum opening they had planned to go to on Friday. As they left the museum, Taylor invited both women to a movie the next night, Maddie accepted, Kathleen excused herself. So Kathleen spent Saturday night in her apartment with her dog, Barkley, discussing the situation with him. She had hoped that she & Taylor would have gotten together eventually. Just the thought of Taylor & Maddie made her feel tense. ( )

This book did a very nice job of bringing the series to a close. I wish it hadn't, was very much enjoying following the lives of Cahira O'Connor's descendents. While I felt this one got a bit too preachy on the importance of Christian values it did make a good point. Giving your all to Christ doesn't have to mean doing things that change the entire world, impacting just the lives around you is equally important.

Overall an enjoyable read and one I would recommend without hesitation. ( )
