Now back in print, this unique novel tells the story of one woman's remarkable life, lived out in the harshly beautiful landscape of the Burren. It is a story told by Mariah, a woman healer who lived in harmony not only with the special environment of the Burren but also with the spirits of the past. It is a story of love surprisingly found and tragically lost; of the struggle of an independent woman who was viewed with suspicion, whose healing powers were sought by many yet condemned from the pulpit. ""Irish writer and musicologist Curtis interweaves personal reminiscence, local and national history, and storytelling into a tapestry richly illustrating a life spanning almost a century.""-Library Journal.
