Maggie Concannon's story is brought to life in "Born in Fire," an audiobook written by the acclaimed American romance writer Nora Roberts.
From the sea-swept cliffs and lush green fields of Ireland comes a story listeners won't easily forget. The story is that of Maggie Concannon, a modern Irish lass with fire in her features, fire in her masses of russet-colored hair and a fire in her soul that must have an escape.
In Maggie's case, the outlet is her art, which has chosen her, rather than her choosing it. She blows glass art pieces out of the sand and rocks and chemicals of her native Ireland, art creations that are so beautiful they are highly sought after and highly prized.
Maggie, too, has been a child of fire since before her own birth. A passion, of sorts, ignited between an Irish dreamer and an Irish singer, a passion whose unholy passions created a child they called Margaret Mary. Like so many fires before, the passion of this forced and quickly forged marriage just as quickly died, evolving into a slow, seething rage within one parent and a stalwart devotion within the other. Throughout it all, Maggie endures childhood and enters young womanhood with confused, fearful perceptions concerning relationships, family, commitment and most of all, about the love between a man and a woman.
