In the tradition of Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon, Ellen Evert Hopman weaves Druid history and spirituality into an engaging love story. This Bardic teaching tale is set in a fictional third-century Ireland when Christianity is sweeping across the Celtic Isles. During this time of crisis, love blooms between Ethne, a Druid healer, and her patient, a Fennid warrior. Their passionate affair suffers a tragic blow when Ethne is called upon to become the high queen.

Told from the Druid perspective, Hopman recreates the daily life, magical practices, politics, and spiritual lives of the ancient Celts during this historic turning point. Druid holy days, rites, rituals, herbal lore, and more are brought to life in this Celtic fantasy—illuminating Druidic teachings and cultural wisdom.

If February is the month of love, chocolate, and all things “Valentiney,” why is it such a dark, depressing month? February seems to last the longest of the winter months, in spite of being our shortest calendar month (extra leap day notwithstanding). Part of the problem is that we are still waiting for the sun to return—for those of us in northerly climates, Imbolc really has no feeling of “the...
