AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The folk of Sevenwaters have always done their best to be loyal custodians of the old ways of Ireland. They are a people bound into the very lifeblood of the land. This has caused much joy, but also heartbreak. An old feud with the Britons is stirring, and otherworldly forces seek a hand in its resolution. And now it is Fainne, the reclusive daughter of Niamh and granddaughter to Sorcha, who must shoulder the burden of charting a safe path to the future. Plucked from her remote home and sent to Sevenwaters, Fainne must decide where she stands, for she has opposing forces coursing through her blood. Can she turn her back on those she has begun to love and destroy the chosen one - the child of the prophecy? Or will love, once and for all, prevail?' - Libraries Australia
