Rich historical fiction with strong female character to become Irelands first female priest. Full of mystery and modern day archeologists try to solve the mysteries of the hidden ancient manuscripts.
It's a very different type of romance - and a different type of historical fiction as well. Terrell does a good job of drawing the reader into her mystery, creating a coming of age piece, illuminating the practices of the Church of Rome and the pagan worship of ancient Ireland, and evoking their coalescence into the practices we recognize today, all the while creating a tapestry of daily life that included monastic work on illuminated manuscripts. The book is enjoyable reading, and I would highly recommend it to young girls. A story of a great woman who exerted herself to follow her heart and become more than a domestic and political servant -- in fact, to become a Saint.
