Ireland Rose, titled from the heroine of the story..It’s quite a weird name.;)

I always love historical romances..and this time the story is set in Ireland and Charlestone.

It’s quite fascinating really, how she found love in Captain Wyatt..especially the story behind Wyatt and his first love, I won’t say more..but it’s really a wonderful coincidence, and just like Rose I’m so into the lovers letters, even if it sounded as a one-sided-conversation…

Honestly, at first I found the story rather a little slower…I also hate the fact how Wyatt seemed to act nonchalant about Rose…but at the end..everything makes sense.

Rose’s character is truly amazing! Even her life was put into chaos, she still believes in God..even if the whole society would ridicule her, she still did her best to protect others first. With this book, I felt more connected to her than anyone else, from her sweet moments as a rich Captain’s daughter, to her being a widow, to the time she’s been look down by her former friends until she have to let go of the child she cared for..Through ups and downs, her character become strong. And I think, it’s one thing that should remind us to be like her.

This book proves that whatever happens, even if you have nothing left..He has still his plans stored for you…You just have to trust Him. More than anything else, Ireland Rose is pack with history, romance and a wonderful lesson about faith and love that any reader could bury in their heart…

Ms. Patricia Strefling did a wonderful job in weaving histories of Ireland and Charleston into a unique and provoking story…

If you’re interested with a little drama, historical romance….grab this book now!..:)
