Description

The ancient Irish believed that people were affected by the cycles of the moon and that the moon had real power over the deeds of men. After dancing at an Irish dancing competition (feis) in Beltra, County Sligo, Ireland, 13-year-old Irish dancer Liffey Rivers experiences an extraordinary phenomenon directly above Queen Maeve's cairn on the summit of Knocknarea (the Mountain of the Moon). Soon after this paranormal event, Liffey finds herself seeking answers to life and death questions as she desperately searches on the mountain for a mysterious woman who wears a diamond 'M.'

About Brenna Briggs

Brenna Briggs is the author of eight Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries and MAIDS: Mothers Addicted To Irish Dancing. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, into a third generation Irish American family, she thought that eating green-dyed bakery bread and sugar cookies with bright green icing on Saint Patrick's Day were the best things about being Irish. Briggs' essays and short stories have been featured in Hornpipe Magazine, The Irish American Post, Celtic Canada, The Sligo Quarterly Review, Irish Dancing and Culture Magazine and many other Irish American periodicals and newspapers. After returning in 2009 from a six year stay in County Sligo where she wrote the first three Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer mysteries, she lives in the "Driftless Area" of Wisconsin near the Mississippi River. Her books and magazine short stories and essays are part of the Dublin archives for traditional Irish music and dance (Taisce Cheol Duchais Eirreann) on Merrion Square. Brenna studied theatre and history at St. Mary's College-Notre Dame.
