Brigid of Ireland

By Cindy Thomson

Description:

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.

Book Takeaway:

The meaning of family, the value of spiritual gifts, counts for nothing without God.

Why the author wrote this book:

I'm keenly interested in the early Christian period of Ireland. When I discovered Brigid, one of three patron saints of Ireland, I was enthralled by the legends. How did she get to be so generous? How did she overcome being born a slave? What was it like to be separated from her mother by own father's doing? What was it like to a Christian minority in that era? I'm still learning about the Celtic Christians and writing about the stories they left for us is my passion.
