Book Review - Passion and Principle

About the Book
This is the story of Mary Margaret Kathleen Kelly O’Reilly, a young Pagan Catholic born with a veil (second sight) in Dingle, Ireland in 1798. This romantic historical tale begins in an Ireland still under British rule, with the oppression of Roman Catholics, and great bitterness among the Irish people, who desire most of all freedom from the British Crown. Our heroine’s life has many twists and turns, numerous triumphs and tragedies. At a young age, Maggie finds herself torn between her passion for her young smuggler and a handsome soldier of the Crown. The story is rich in the history and drama of the 1800s in Ireland, Europe and America between 1798 and 1871.

My Take on the Book
The author of this book did an amazing job at creating a beautiful book that opens your mind to the world of Ireland. The book is a romantic tale which moves along quite quickly, and even though it is a longer book, I found that I was thoroughly intrigued enough to keep wanting to read page after page. The characters in the book were strong and especially the heroine is a character that, though she has had to overcome much, works hard to overcome this and find love in the end. Overall, if you enjoy romance and historical fiction, you will enjoy reading this!
