A New York Times Bestseller On a hot July afternoon, a worker at an Antietam Creek construction site drives the blade of his backhoe into a layer of soil and strikes a 5,000-year-old human skull. The discovery draws a lot of attention and more controversy. It also changes Callie Dunbrook's life in ways she never expected. As an archaeologist, Callie knows a lot about the past -- but her own past is about to be called into question. Recruited for her expertise on the Antietam Creek dig, she encounters danger as death and misfortune haunt the project, and rumors fly that the site is cursed. Joining forces in her work with her irritating but irresistible ex-husband Jake, she finds a passion that feels equally dangerous.

I like Nora Roberts' books for a fast-paced, easy-to-read suspense. I tolerate the romance that's sprinkled in. And normally, I enjoy the ride. But "Birthright" had too much romance, not enough suspense, and flat characters who I found it hard to sympathize with.

So, although I stuck it out to find out "whodoneit," I really wouldn't recommend this one to others.

Fantastic book - the first book I ever read of Roberts' and the best book of hers, in my opinion. (I have read the majority of her non-series titles). Multiple characters have a solid storyline and Callie and Jake have a great back-and-forth throughout the story that pulls you along. Highly recommended for Roberts fans or anyone who enjoys a good romance.
