ARC Arrival: Maire

Maire by Linda Windsor

Publisher: Multnomah

I received this book for a Grab Bag tour in July from Staci at Random House.

About the book: (from the book cover) Fifth century Ireland: An ancient land of timeless mystery where the spark of Christianity spreads like wildfire among kings, scholars, and peasants alike. And nowhere is the impact greater than among the druids, as the light of Christ divides those seeking truth from those seeking power.

Against this backdrop of passion and change, two warriors stand firm: Rowan of Emrys, reformed mercenary; and Maire, warrior queen of Gleannmara.

Rowan and Maire clash on the battlefield, and Maire takes Rowan as her hostage and husband. She cannot understand his faith, his dedication to the one God, but neither can she deny the truth in his claims that meekness and humility are stronger than any blade of steel.

When they finally join together, lifting their swords against the evil druid Morlach and his corrupt forces of darkness, they discover the cost - and joy - of following the one true God and His Christ.

About the author: Linda Windsor is a native of Maryland's Easter Shore, where she lives with her family in a restored eighteenth-century farmhouse. The author of Hi Honey, I'm Home; It Had to Be You; and Along Came Jones; Linda also has a music and speaking ministry in her community.
