This book is a good read, not one that I couldn't lay down though.
The first thought that comes to my mind after reading Maire is that this is not your typical Christian historical fiction book! I would venture a guess that the genre was not as popular when it was written as it is now, and boy, it has an intense heroine. She's going to claw, fight, and protect her beloved Gleannmara as its new queenâ¦even if she has to take a husband sooner than she prefers while also keeping her guard up against the evil druid, Morlach.
Her husband, Rowan, is a loyal and dreamy hero with a devout faith in God â a faith that he is eager to share with Maire and her clan. Their homeland isn't familiar with the One True God, only pagan rituals and druids that have them steeped in superstitious lore. Rowan longs to be a priest, but suddenly finds himself a king.
Maire has everything â action, drama, and a steamy romance â all tied up in a pretty package that will have you glued to its pages! There is a lovely intro told from Ireland's perspective (Ireland is also known as Erin) that prepares you for some of the cultural language in the story. The first few chapters may take a bit of getting used to, but keep going â this is one worthwhile read!
