Finalist in the 1999 RITA Awards and a Romantic Times’ Reviewers’ Choice Inspirational Novel of the Year.
It is said that as Cahira, daughter of the great Irish king Rory O’Connor, lay dying of a wound from a Norman blade, she beseeched God that others would follow her calling.
To Kathleen O’Connor, Cahira’s story is nothing more than a fable–until Kathleen realizes she herself bears the mark of Cahira.
The auburned-haired O’Connor women share a bond far deeper than their striking physical appearance. These courageous, high-spirited women all push against societal limits in a heritage that spans generations and countries from 13th-century Ireland to 15th-century Prague.
To uncover the truth about the heirs of Cahira O’Connor, and learn where she fits into their legacy, Kathleen delves into the past. Her research begins with Anika of Prague–a girl who struggles to prove herself as a medieval knight while living in a world filled with peril, courage, vengeance, love, and sacrifice beyond anything she has ever known.
