Publisher's Summary

Summer, 367 A.D. In a land of mystery and enchantment, in an age of Celtic gods, Highland warlords, Roman legions, and powerful druids, a young Pictish healer finds herself embroiled in an epic struggle between gods and men.

The Celtic tribes of the lands we now know as Scotland and Ireland conspire to assault Hadrian’s Wall and drive the Romans out of Britain forever. But in order for the warriors to achieve victory in the military campaign, the druids must first gain ascendancy over the new Roman god.

Amid clandestine preparations for war, Flora is yanked out of her peaceful, ordinary world and thrust into a spiritual battle of mythic proportions. In order to save her family, her clan, and her people, she is called upon to sacrifice not only her life, but her very identity. Feeling trapped in a web of manipulation and deceit, she struggles to discover the true reality of who she is and who she will become.

Set in the Scottish Highlands, this story brings to life an age and a people that have remained veiled in the mists of time. Based on extensive research into the archaeology, culture, and geography of fourth-century Scotland, Daughter of the Gods explores the mysterious people knowns as the Picts - a collection of tribes so determined to retain their freedom that they dared to defy the mightiest army the ancient world had ever known. This is not, however, primarily an action adventure tale, but a profoundly provocative saga for readers who like to think deeply about their own individual role within the interpersonal, cultural, and spiritual realities of our world.

A master piece which should be made into film!

Excellently created like a master weaver using finely spun threads of colours with the gold thread running from beginning to end. Identity, purpose, inner struggle and love are some of those threads spinning from start to finnish.

I didnt want the book to stop after Id merged into the main character, her physical environment and the pagan culture of our historic Pictish people of Alba and the Druids in the time of Roman invasion.

Fine detail and epic vision based on historical fact and immense research of the life culture and people in these powerfull places, some of which still exist to this day along with the physical relics, stories, traditions and records.

Its enough to compell many to not only seek out and visit these actual places but also to seek out meaning and purpose for themselves in their own soul and think eternally. We can take nothing with us there except who and Whos we really are!

Would Recommend

A historical story of a young Celtic healer, Scottish folklore and gods.
I was keen to listen to this story as anything set in my country captures my interest. To be honest this was hard to get into however I am glad I persevered.
Very well written and descriptive which was done with care. Evidence that a lot of research went into the historic and geographic element. The language used has modern terminology which I think has been done in such a way for the reader to relate to current social context.
The narrator was superb and must give credit even though I thought the Ayrshire accent sounded more Irish lol.
Enjoyable and thought-provoking book worth a read.

This story should be made into a movie!!!

This book is masterfully written! And the narration is incredible..... The combination of this brilliant story with truly expert narration, takes you into another time and place, and vividly brings to life the interplay of the natural world and the spiritual realm, as experienced by the ancient Pictish people of Scotland!

A fascinating and compelling read....... This story would honestly make an incredible movie!

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I listened to...... the imagery, character dialogues, story line, and plot twists all mingle together into a truly compelling and thoroughly enjoyable story!
