Overview

For Aífe, the beautiful adopted daughter of Drui healer Ethne and her warrior partner Ruadh, life revolves around the sacred beauty and ancient mystery of the Old Ways. Surrounded by lush, green trees and frolicsome wildlife, the Forest School has been the heart of her Druidic education-and her beloved home. But to become a healer and priestess, she must leave behind all that she loves and journey to the Druid Isle . . .

Handsome and spirited, Lucius is resolved to seek adventure outside of the Christian monastery where he was raised. Following a daring escape one night, Lucius arrives at a Pagan Gaulish village and discovers their gentle way of life. But a political firestorm is brewing, and Lucius is caught in the middle as the church and the Romans attempt to destroy everything the Druids hold dear. In his desperation to escape ruthless enemies and untold dangers, Lucius finds himself on the Druid Isle, where he will face the biggest decision of his life.

Set on a third-century island off the coast of Scotland, this instructional Celtic tale delves deeply into the spiritual mysteries of the Druids, offering glimpses of Druidic daily life, herbal lore, and ancient rituals, along with a fascinating look at the Romans, Gauls, and Britons. Includes a Celtic/Druidic glossary.

"One of the best features of the book is the small bits of old lore from the Druids scattered throughout . . . I would definitely recommend this book!"—Rev. Skip Ellison, Archdruid of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) and

author of Ogham: The Secret Language of the Druids

I just loved this book- couldn't put it down. Why? Well, the storyline is just what I was looking for and it flowed so smoothly. The Druid information and the descriptive practices were so enlightening that this book has now joined my Druid reference library. As a sequel to Ellen's first novel, The Priestess of the Forest: A Druid Journey, it was a perfect vehicle to be able to continue Ethne's saga. I also found, though, that if I had not read the first book, this book, The Druid Isle, could more than stand alone. For history buffs as well as those Druid oriented, this book would be a purchase well made.

This book is for people who care to read between the lines in a history book. Highly recommended.
