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.

Professional reviews

"FreemanÕs historical mystery series set in ancient Ireland gets a fantastic launch in audio with Fiona HardinghamÕs beautifully articulated Irish voices. She infuses the text and dialogue with images of druids, seers, and Celtic loreÑelements that transport the listener to the sixth century. The Abbess gives Sister Deirdre the job of finding some important missing bones. On her quest, Deirdre encounters her ex-husband, Fergus, the neighboring Abbot, an Irish pirate king, and her first love. Hardingham captures the essence of FergusÕs duplicity, the AbbotÕs avarice, the sheer nerve of the pirate king, and the stern control of the Abbess. Fans of historical mysteries will be eager for the next installment. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
