About the Book

For nearly a thousand years Ireland, which lay on the fringes of the European Continent was not disturbed by foreign invaders.  Thus, it was that a culture and civilization flourished which was to become the “Wonder of the Western World”.

With the coming of the Vikings in the 8th Century gradual changes occurred., particularly in the coastal regions.  The land was laid waste, the churches, monasteries and homes of kings, princes and lowly alike, were destroyed.  Many of Ireland’s youth were captured and sold into slavery.


About the Author

Born and raised in Ireland, Louise Gherasim came to this country in the 1950’s. She is a successful novelist, writing for adults, teenagers, and children. Her love and understanding of the Irish people - their history, their struggles, their indomitable spirit and undying attachment to their native land, its art, music and literature, lends to her writing something of the strength of her rich Gaelic heritage.
