This is a Christian historical romance. I like that genre, but some people may not and this description was not clear.

The things I liked about this book were 1) The plot. It was unique, entertaining and somewhat unpredictable; and 2) Character Development. The characters were all well-honed, some complex, some more simple, but all well done.

The Cons: 1) Way too long. There were just too many descriptions that took up a lot of pages and contributed nothing to the book; and 2) Editing could be better, although I've seen way worse and it didn't bother me all that much.

This historical romance brings history to life beautifully through the author's main character Rose. The story relives the 1886 Charleston earthquake which is almost symbolic of Rose's life. Her small world is shaken and torn on more than one occasion. First by becoming a widow. Secondly, by being scorned by society for making a decision of the heart. Then again when her heart is broken. But she seeks strength and wisdom. She continues to hope for happiness despite her many trials. "Ireland Rose" reveals how God always knows the outcome. Even when we doubt and struggle and hurt, God has a plan.

Kudos to Author Patricia Strefling for doing an excellent job weaving both the history of Ireland and Charleston into this beautiful storyline.

I had high hopes for this book because the storyline sounded interesting. Boy was I disappointed! The worst thing about the book were the incredible grammar and spelling mistakes; quotation marks missing or in the wrong place, misspelled words, missing words, and much more made it really difficult to follow sometimes. Even transferring the document to Word would eradicate 90% of the mistakes. The historical information is so inaccurate it was laughable! A widow woman inherits a house and business in the mid-1880's? Not gonna happen. And then the plot had her give the house to a black family? There would be serious repercussions if this were a serious novel. That would not happen in Charleston right after the Civil War. The whole storyline was just unbelievable and so crazy, I had to laugh out loud at some of the twists. There is no way someone traveled back and forth to Ireland that many times in one year. A voyage to England alone took months, and they didn't just hop on a ship as portrayed in this story. And who in their right mind would give an illegitimate child to the widow of the father, and say that was a good solution?! And why was it sociably unacceptable for Rose to have a baby born to a single orphan, but it was completely acceptable for a widow to adopt her husband's illegitimate baby?

I would not recommend anyone wasting their time on this book, even if you get it for free. I can't believe this author has more books published. I hope her other ones are better edited and written, although I won't waste my time to find out.

I agree that this writer is gifted! Her books are a delight to read - well done!

I have to say that the numerous errors (spelling, grammar, punctuation and word usage) did affect the flow of the story, and were a distraction. I don't know where authors get their proofreaders, but - at least in Kindle books - they could do much better.

I seem to be the odd woman out here with not particularly liking this one. I even got it when it was offered for free on kindle. But I was halfway through this story and finally got tired of it, skimmed and then read the last chapter. I was waiting for the story and plot to start, but it seemed like it just kept going. There also is a need for better editing in grammar and punctuation.

The Good Parts
1. An interesting storyline and setting.
2. Appreciation to the writer for finishing a book, it's not as easy as one thinks
3. Clean story, no language, sex, violence
4. Lovely cover

The Not So Good Parts
1. One or two dimensional characters. The main character, Ireland Rose was too perfect and didn't seem to have any real flaws. The protagonist, Wyatt, wasn't around much in the half that I read and when he was, he was brooding and didn't "think" or say much more than he wanted to stay away from Rose.

2. This needed more editing for grammar and punctuation. The greatest flaw was in the quotation marks around dialogue. I had to read some parts a few times to figure out if someone was actually speaking - which took me out of the story. There were some ebook formatting issues with indents/paragraphs too.

3. The story meandered a lot and it felt more of a diary. Rose did this, she decided to do that, she realized this, etc. It could have been tightened up a bit more and as my English Prof said c/c - Cut the Clutter. Because of this, I felt like I didn't really understand where the book was going toward.

I really wish I had better things to say, but I can't in good conscience give it more than 3 stars. And I did want to really like the story too.

Bad editing, worse spelling. Plot so-so until Rose decides to give baby away. Really, give the baby to the widow of a philandering man. So, she can see her husband every day, and be reminded of his unfaithfulness? Abandoned by her father, given away by her birth mother. On what planet is it GOOD for the mother, that had her for the first year, to give her away?
