THE EMERALD CROWN

A novel of 9th and 10th century Ireland, when Danish invasions threatened and internecine warfare destroyed unity, follows the fortunes of Sionna, King Flann's daughter as she is twice wed against her will- to two rival kings- and finally finds her happiness as the wife of Niall, her cousin. Disinherited and without position, Niall's years are bitter in a time when wealth meant all. His struggle and Sionna's make an unusual story with much of the flavour of the times.
