Marillier did manage to spend quality time with Bridei and Tuala and their many struggles at Cloud Hill for much of the story. Despite Eile’s unlikeability for methis novel sang with both familiar and new characters to Bridei’s main storyline.

Faolan’s journey is one of bravery, despair, discovery, and love of not only a woman but a child. Another fantastic read in the Bridei series.

I read several hundred pages all in one day while my daughter is recovering from tonsil surgery.

It’s one of the few that I keep coming back to to check and see if a fourth book has been planned.
