She is a pagan as well, a druid and writes the books from a druid perspective! Here is the link to her website and her books!! Highly recommended!!!

Looks good Sorcha
i got so much to do and not enough time to start another book it has to be a special one for me to start it, funny how i ended up reading Stonewylde and got hooked within pages. some books never seem to click & i never get past the first few chapters :roll: I got so many refrence books to digest I think i need two heads :?

You will find these books special!! Specially Wolfskin and Foxmask and the last two of the Bridei Chronicles and this last one is also really very very good!! I enjoyed the Sevenwater's trilogy as well!!!

Well I've just finished Priestess of the Forest and it really is a fantastic read. There were a few comments on Amazon, and I totally agree with one person who said that the ending is left wide open for a sequel or two. A vivid, spellbinding tale with genuine rituals, herbal medicine and invocations woven effortlessly into the story.

Hope you get a copy at a decent price, Carp. I think I got it for £12.99. Every penny well spent!

I recently finished the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. Loved it. I introduced two other people to it who loved it too.

Just lent someone my stonewylde books too. :wink:

Here's some more.

Marley and Me by John Grogan (had me in tears! As well as in stitches)

The Tudor series by Philippa Gregory - The Other Boleyn Girl was brilliant! I also loved The Constant Princess from that series.

Chocolat by Joanne Harris is brilliant, and I also loved her Five Quarters of the Orange. She is another pagan author.

The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger is an amazing book.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom, and also Tuesdays With Morrie by the same author, this one is a biography and really touching.
