Overview

The auburned-haired O'Connor women share a bond far deeper than their striking physical appearance. These courageous, high-spirited women all push against societal limits in this exciting historical, romantic novel that spans generations and countries from 13th-century Ireland to the excitement and mystery of 15th-century Prague.

It is said that as Cahira, daughter of the great Irish king Rory O'Connor, lay dying of a wound from a Norman blade, she beseeched God that others would follow her calling. To Kathleen O'Connor, Cahira's story was nothing more than a fable--until research divulged that the tale was true. As a stunned Kathleen realizes that she herself bears the mark of Cahira, she wonders if she is destined to continue the legacy.

To uncover the answers, Kathleen delves into the past to find the truth about the Heirs of Cahira O'Connor. It is a journey that carries her across generations, from the battlefields of 13th-century Ireland to the castles of 15th-century Prague. It is a past filled with peril, courage, vengeance, love, and sacrifice beyond anything she has ever known.

    This was a great book!!!

    I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. It's a story that you don't have to worry about the author adding in things that a christian person doesn't want to hear and the story doesn't suffer at all. In fact it makes it twice as good. You feel the tension through out the story. It will hold your attention even after you've finished reading it. I can't wait to get the rest of the series. I hope to pass this book on to as many people as possible.

    The Silver Sword is a gold for me!

    Ok first of all, the fact that it's about a woman who defeats men and goes against what women did back than....amazing! Love a good book with a great strong heroine. And the fact that she's a redhead makes it all the better to me. Sorry but it does. The plot itself can sometimes lag and go slowly in places, but overall it's a good plot. At the time I was reading this book my church was going through a revival if you will, so Jan Hus's struggles and ending was extremely funny to me. Sorry, just had to add that. I would reccommed this book and the rest of the series if you like historical fiction, you know about piebaldism, you love romance and heroines. It's a great book. I'm definately going to be reading the other 3 books.
