Confessions of a Pagan Nun

Wonderful, thought provoking, inspiring.

Thoroughly enjoyed the character of Gwynneve and her quest for truth, to become a druid, and to learn the mystery of the written word.

The book is a history of her life as a reflection in her later years as a nun at the monastery of Saint Brigit in the sixth-century in Ireland.

Well written, giving some insight into the change from paganism in Ireland to the conversion to Christianity and as to how it affected her and others known to her in her earlier years.

This is an historical novel, but based on some historical documentation. In additional to being a well told tale it provided some historical context to the Druid society that was refreshing to read.
