When Michael Kilbride, a handsome man with a dark past, arrives in the Irish village of Ballymuir, rumors begin to fly. While many turn against him, one woman steps forward--the village's beloved schoolteacher, Kylie O'Shea. Kylie's friends have long believed that proper Kylie is bound to fulfill the local legend of being the last bride in Ballymuir. But sparks soon ignite between Michael and Kylie. Will Kylie, who also hides secrets, find the courage to confront her past and claim passion as her own?
This book was an easy read and entertaining but it could have been shorter. I would have preferred that all of the agonizing and self doubt and assuming what Kylie and Michael each thought that they knew what the other was thinking had been kept to a minimum. But otherwise I enjoyed the story and the writing was good.
Being of Irish decent I loved this story. It has a little bit of everything so natural to the culture of the Irish people and their surroundings.
Having been to Ireland, this story reminds me of the romance and conflicts these stouthearted people continue to endure. A good read!
What a book, could not put it down for two day and finished. Rumors can't take away what love can over come as long as you can be true to yourself. Read this book, well worth it for being free. Take a chance and read it you won't regret it.
