Spring 1998 –

Norah, an American woman journalist, currently adrift in her life, heads to Belfast, Northern Ireland to cover the unfolding Peace Accords. In addition, she is also unravelling a family legend.

In another spring, 410 years past, Spain prepares the greatest naval fleet ever assembled. Europe is abuzz with rumours of an invasion to unseat the “English Jezebel”, Queen Elizabeth I.

In 1588s Celtic Ireland, a 15 year old pagan girl is an apprentice seamstress earning her way and experiencing history’s surprises as a shipwrecked, Spanish Soldier is washed ashore on a local Irish beach.

“The truth must become a legend to survive,” it has been said. Did any Armada shipwrecked survivors leave any descendants in Ireland? Quite possibly.

What history has downplayed, due to a collective Irish guilt, may indeed be the truth.

Religion, magick and politics intertwine in this tale, as the omission of the historical truths are finally revealed.

A 16th century event has echoes to our current era, when history is hijacked by the victors.

Yet, eventually, “The truth will out.”

Even if that truth arrives centuries later.


A voracious reader from an early age, this author has worked as a stringer and correspondent for newspapers in both Maine and Massachusetts. In addition to writing work, she has been employed as a Registered Nurse, and an Educator.

Currently, she is working on completing a second novel, a contemporary tale about her Baby Boomer generation.

A graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, she lives with her husband, John and their ruling cat, Nemo.
