A terrific read! I thoroughly enjoyed the vivid and well-researched details of life in ancient Ireland. Ciara is a Druid princess who feels a vague unease about her calling. Despite this, she is fostered to relatives to learn the rites and practices of the Druid priests. I especially loved learning along with her about the medicinal properties of different herbs.
During her training she meets and falls in love with Aiden, who is also fostered to her uncle. But family deceptions, villains and intrigue threaten to keep the young lovers apart. Ciara is a wonderful heroine of exceptional courage and she is able to inspire love and trust in those around her. Woven into the story is Ciara’s personal and spiritual growth and her life changing meeting with Patrick, who brings the message of a loving God.
I highly recommend this exciting and fast-paced book. The plot’s twists and turns will keep you engaged until the very last page.
