Daughter of the Shining IslesBook - 2000
Writing from her own passionately feminist perspective with a vision of spiritual health beyond shame, Elizabeth Cunningham opens a world with affinities to the work of Robertson Davies and Marion Zimmer Bradley. Her latest novel, Daughter of the Shining Isles, gives us a Mary Magdalen for our times: Maeve, a feisty Celt, raised by warrior witches to a life of heroism. When she arrives on a magical Druid island, she meets her cosmic twin (J)Esus of Nazareth. Together they become embroiled in an adventure of passion, betrayal, and human sacrifice. Sure to stir controversy, this first volume of The Magdalen Trilogy brings fresh insight into the lost years of the young man called Esus, and the vital young woman who was his equal. Profoundly moving and often outrageously funny, Cunningham's new novel is storytelling of the highest caliber; Maeve is sure to claim her place among the great literary heroines of our age.
