Rebellion has always been in the O’Reilly family’s blood, so when faced with the tragic death of her brother during Northern Ireland’s infamous Troubles, a teenage Nora joined the IRA to fight for her country’s freedom. Now, more than a decade later, Nora is haunted by both her past and vivid dreams of a man she has never met.
When she is given a relic belonging to Brigid of Kildare, patron saint of Ireland, the mystical artifact transports her back eighty years; to the height of Ireland’s brutal civil war. Here she meets the alluring stranger from her dreams, who has his own secrets and agenda. Taken out of her own time, Nora has the chance to alter the fortunes of Ireland and maybe even save the ones she loves. In this captivating and adventurous novel from Jodi McIsaac, history belongs to those with the courage to change it.
I enjoy historical fiction and this story about Irish political with doses of fantasy lore promised to be an interesting tale. Although, I did not find this story interesting enough to care about the characters. It takes too long to get to the bottom line of the story and the time travel. The story is not very cohesive and it seems that a variety of different scenes were thrown together to make a story.
I received a digital copy of book from the publisher 47North via NetGalley in exchange for my review.
