Nora Roberts - Books & Movies

I was visiting with a patron the other day and she told me how much she loved the books by Nora Roberts. Nora Roberts has been a very popular author at our library for many years and hearing the comments about her just made me remember that some of her books have recently been made into TV movies by Lifetime.

Sometimes a movie can be a great introduction to an author. So if you've seen some of them, maybe you'd like to read the book too. Or, if you're already a Nora Robert's fan, maybe you'd like to see the movie that aired on Lifetime. They are available to view online for a limited time, just go to and look for a link to the 'Nora Roberts Movies Online' or for their online movies.

Below are the books they've made in to movies. If you haven't read it yet, why not check it out!
