The Heirs of Cahira O'Connor

I really should be sleeping by now, but I'm wide awake. To waste time I've been browsing on Amazon. ;) I came across this book below, The Silver Sword by: Angela Elwell Hunt. It's the first book in a series called The Heirs of Cahira O'Connor. It was first published in 1998, it's being re-release on June 2nd with a brand new cover. It looks like it might be pretty good.

Book Blurb:
The auburned-haired O'Connor women share a bond far deeper than their striking physical appearance. These courageous, high-spirited women all push against societal limits in this exciting historical, romantic novel that spans generations and countries from 13th-century Ireland to the excitement and mystery of 15th-century Prague.
It is said that as Cahira, daughter of the great Irish king Rory O'Connor, lay dying of a wound from a Norman blade, she beseeched God that others would follow her calling. To Kathleen O'Connor, Cahira's story was nothing more than a fable--until research divulged that the tale was true. As a stunned Kathleen realizes that she herself bears the mark of Cahira, she wonders if she is destined to continue the legacy.
To uncover the answers, Kathleen delves into the past to find the truth about the Heirs of Cahira O'Connor. It is a journey that carries her across generations, from the battlefields of 13th-century Ireland to the castles of 15th-century Prague. It is a past filled with peril, courage, vengeance, love, and sacrifice beyond anything she has ever known.

  4. When I first saw the book I thought maybe it was a fantasy. But the author's website has it under Historical Fiction and Amazon mentions Romance. I definitely gonna pick it up to see what its like.

  5. You always find the best books. :)


  6. I completely understand, Anna, when I can't sleep, or when I can't concentrate at work, I switch over to browse Amazon or B&N. (No wonder my list of books to read seems to multiply everytime I check on it...) I know, bad girl for doing so at work, but sometimes I can't help it. LOL.

    Anyways, thanks for telling us about this one-- I think I've seen the books before, probably while browsing, and they do sound very intersting! That's it, all of them are going on my list.

    Have a great Sunday-- enjoy the last day of the (too short) weekend,
