Still working through my Kindle backlog in between reading newer books. I just finished Fawkes by Nadine Brandes. You can read my review of that book here.
I've just downloaded this book from my Library. It's a novel about a 5th century Irish Saint named Brigid. The book was first published by monarch books several years back, but has been republished with two sequels about other figures in Irish history.
In 5th-century pagan-dominated Ireland, Brigid is born a slave to her own father and is separated from her mother.
Desperately seeking love and acceptance, Brigid becomes a believer in Christ. Knowing how the Irish people cling to superstitions and fears, can Brigid overcome them?
Will her hatred for her father and a scheming evil sorcerer destroy her faith? Set in the era of St. Patrick, this fantasy-filled novel will captivate readers as Brigid must choose between God’s will and the desire to save her family.
I have picked my First Line today from Chapter One instead of the Prologue.
"Brigid would never forget that day. Yet the memory of her mother's face and the sound of her voice were fading like the sun-bleached pebbles she plucked from the water's edge"
