The Lion of Ireland
She writes these page-turner novels that weave wonderful fictional characters with real historical ones. Along the way, she makes you feel as though you were living that time in history. This novel covers the life and times of Brian Boru,who lived in the 10th century and became the first king of a united Ireland. He was a magnificant character and this is a bold book, full of politics and war and passion and (tasteful) sex, and you will better understand Ireland when you're through with it. You'll also want to go there and see these places. Someone should make a movie from this book. If you liked the Mel Gibson movie, "Braveheart", you will love this novel.
