Review: Three Fates by Nora Roberts



When the Lusitania sank, one survivor became a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief—but keeping the small silver statue he lifted, a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that priceless heirloom, one of a long-separated set of three, has been stolen. And Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan are determined to recover their great-great-grandfather’s treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.The quest will take them from their home in Ireland to Helsinki, Prague, and New York where they will meet a brilliant scholar who will aid them in their hunt—and an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates…

I always enjoy books that use a real event in history as the foundation for the story, so I was hooked right away when I saw the sinking of the Lusitania was being used for this one. The story rarely has a dull moment, and it was fascinating to see the way the lives of the protagonists were intertwined in both the past and the present. This was a very enjoyable book to read, and as much as I wanted to know the conclusion, I was a little sorry when I realized I’d read the last page. I would recommend it very highly to anyone who enjoys reading. It was a thoroughly engrossing novel from start to finish!
