When the little town of Ballymara's tourism is threatened by a cynical journalist, Moyra Rose O'Cullen challenges him. Tracing history back in time, she uncovers the roots of the local legend of the pledging stone at the door to the chapel and learns three stories of how her ancestor's bonds of love were formed over the ancient stone:
Five hundred years after the birth of Christ, Conn came to Ireland and encountered Druids. But could his attempts at sharing his Christian faith be wrecked by a woman on her own personal mission?
Centuries later Breanda has been abducted by brigands. When plans are formed to rescue her, will her childhood love have to choose between his clan and Breanda?
After Being jilted by one American, Keely is bitter. But when a cowboy performing in shows across nineteenth century Europe is injured and dependent on her father's help, can she open her heart to love another American?
After her journey through history, can Moyra convince the modern world that the legends of love are true? Might she form her own match over the stone?

This book takes place in Ireland in the present time. Moyra, lives and works in Ireland. She is involved with tourism and advertising. Jack comes to Ireland to write an article for a travel magazine. But right from the start he intends to write a negative article so he can save his job and Moyra takes an instant dislike for him as he insults her heritage.
Through the story there are flashbacks into the past. Which is great if you like history, like me! (1850, 1350, and 500) Jack and Moyra learn all about Moyra's family through three more fabulous romances! I couldn't put this book down. I recommend it for anybody who wants to read about Ireland, Faith, and Love. It was such a great and inspirational read.
