"In an evocative Celtic novel set in a time when druids roamed the land, lively young sister Deirdre embarks on a mission to find the stolen bones of her convent's patron saint. In ancient Ireland, an island ruled by kings and druids, the nuns of Saint Brigid are fighting to keep their monastery alive. When the bones of Brigid go missing from their church, the theft threatens to destroy all they have worked for. No one knows the danger they face better than Sister Deirdre, a young nun torn between two worlds. Trained as a bard and raised by a druid grandmother, she must draw upon all of her skills, both as a bard and as a nun, to find the bones before the convent begins to lose faith."--Publisher's website.

Philip Freeman must have really been resting on his laurels when he inked this one out. A ridiculous book, vulgar, poorly written with just a slight bit of historical accuracy. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

This book may be suited for teen girls. It is drivel. However, the geographical references and the climatic information are accurate. Somewhat disappointing story line.

Although the bestiality scene was most shocking and grossed me out, it should not condemn the book to gather dust on the shelf. It portrays a feisty and strong woman in Sister Deidre and all the challenges she faced trying to fit in as a nun in the abbey. Her ultimate challenge was to find the bones to save the abbey and to determine the course of her life as well. If the historic side of it was accurate as claimed, it was an interesting read.

I abandon this one about 1/3 of the way through. It is a weird book but it was the description of bestiality that finally disgusted me enough to send it back. I DO NOT recommend this book to any Christian person.
