Ireland in the reign of King Henry V111 comes alive with patriotic fury as a young woman lives out her destiny in MAGHEEN, a historical and romantic novel.
As a young girl from the O'Neill clan, Magheen is orphaned and sent across country to live with her uncle, Tom O'Connor. She learns early about the dreaded Sasanach, the English invaders, who plunder and pillage their way through Ireland, raping and killing in their path. As she matures, the fiery and strong-willed Magheen comes to realize her heritage as an O'Neill will be more than just marriage and children, but rather a destiny to help unite the clans of her beautiful Ireland into a strong fighting force that will drive the hated English from their shores forever.
Teenage romance and elegant parties break the tension after the Sasanach attack her village, but Magheen finds herself thrust into the politics of her country after a fatal encounter with an English soldier. Her romantic heart further complicates her life when she falls in love, as she nurses back to health, a shipwrecked French officer, Hugo, only to lose him. Magheen struggles to find another to marry only to fall victim to the political intrigues of the clan and end up marrying a man she doesn't know in order to unite divisive Irish factions against the British.
