Editorial Reviews

Review

“A lively and lucid biography.” (The New York Times (on 'St. Patrick of Ireland'))

“Philip Freeman creates convincing characters who use realistic dialogue. All books about Celtic Heritage should be this readable. I hope to hear more of Deidre in the future.” (The Irish American News)

“The pacing and suspense were very well stylized, and I was happy to see that Philip Freeman plans on publishing a second novel featuring the lively Sister Deirdre.” (Historical Novel Society)

“Freeman's (St. Patrick of Ireland) first novel has a strong atmosphere, absorbing, well-drawn characters, and a compelling plot. Fans of Tremayne's "Sister Fidelma" series will want to give this a try. It may also be of interest to those who like series set in Roman and pre-Roman Britain, such as those by Kelli Stanley or Ruth Downie.” (Library Journal (starred review and "Debut of the Month"))

Good story line. Easy read. Not too deep. Good for a cloudy day read. Interesting history of that era and country.

“Saint Brigid’s Bones” is a fascinating and well-written novel. While there may not be any sword fights or epic battles in Freeman’s Celtic tale of long ago, the book definitely holds plenty of intrigue and mystery. The book is reminiscent of a time and place described in Bernard Cornwell’s novels; however, “Saint Brigid” provides a much different take on this period in time.

This is a great read, especially if you are interested in Irish history. I had read this author's book on St. Patrick before reading this novel, and that helped with the context of the novel. I do think one with no historical knowledge of Ireland could still enjoy this novel. Can't wait for the next one!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A good story with an interesting mystery and an unexpected but satisfying solution. The main character seemed a little too modern in her attitudes for her time, but overall the book was well researched. I will buy any more books he writes about this character.
