/24-7PressRelease/ - March 22, 2006 - The story takes place in seventh-century feudal Scotland. Invading Christians, using savage and barbaric torture and executions, try to force the conversion of the native Celts whom these Christians consider as Pagans. And, the Celts fight back to retain their land, their way of life and their religion, which is centered upon a goddess. Throughout the book, rich in Celtic lore, Shirley Roe demonstrates a detailed knowledge of Celtic mores, customs, philosophy and religious practices.
Well known Irish/American author Shawn Patrick Thornton raved, "I was unable to put the book down. I hungrily devoured it in just over twenty-four hours. There were battles between knights on horses, deaths, traitor's plots, medieval castles, deep dark forests with fairies in them and sunny green meadows with clear streams and wildflowers of every color. There was music and singing, love affairs and feasts with great tables filled with mutton, wild game and tankards of ale. There were myths about the Arch Druid and High Priestess rising magically, mystically out of the early morning sun. Every conceivable human passion is explored in an ever moving action setting. Only an author with the most vivid of imaginations could conceive of such a rich plot!" And then Mr. Thornton compared it to Dan Brown's, The Da Vinci Code, for sustained action and to Pearl Buck's, The Good Earth, for its searching examination of every human passion in a simple, primitive pastoral setting.
An earlier novel by Shirley, Of Dreams and Nightmares, has recently been entered in the prestigious IPPY Awards as well as the BookAdz Awards in Canada.
