Description

The Danu. The "little people." Everyone who is Irish knows of the tales of this mystical race who landed on the shores of Eire long ago and became the land's guardians. They held power over nature and some would say over Time itself. While many doubt they ever existed, there are as many today who cling to the myth and claim that they are still among us.This enchanting fantasy that tells the story of the coming of the Celts to Eire and their discovery of the mystical small folk. They find both beauty and magic in the new land, and conquer it for their own. But the Danu have secrets and powers of their own and those who wish to be conquerors find that it is not only their swords being challenged but also their hearts. "Song of Ireland" by Juilene Osborne-McKnight is a riveting retelling of Irish folklore.
