Synopsis: This exciting project brings together decades of study about mythology with one seeker’s circuambulation through the landscape of Ireland, all described with a poet’s voice. Pat Monaghan has studied and taught many integrated studies in poetry, science, mythology, feminist spirituality, environmental studies, chaos theory, and religion. All of these disciplines inform her writing, but none distract from the poetic story-telling or the mystical lore she encounters and then conveys. Her journey takes her to a churchyard with a fountain representing St. Bridget, perhaps a Christian representation of the Celtic goddess of water, fire, and transformation, called Brigit. Monaghan describes spiral petroglyphs and ancient sacred caves, bogs and woods where fairies have played their tricks on humans, and water falls that became sacred spots. The stories instruct and teach, as Monaghan points to ways that these myths still reveal the truths of human life, and the contradictions of love and hate, mother and seductress, harmony and struggle that are embodied in women’s lives in all of human existence.

From Booklist: Monaghan begins with a confession of sorts. Raised in Alaska, she always had thought of herself as Irish yet for a long time knew next to nothing about Ireland. In her mind's eye, her ancestral home was part myth, part history--unreal and intangible. Here she tells the story of going home for the first time, as it were. Her Ireland isn't one place but a mosaic of places, and as she travels the byways of old Ireland, which aren't far removed from contemporary Ireland, tracing the pagan calendar of the Celtic year, she also explores Ireland's fierce love of poetry (she reminds us that books of poetry often appear on Irish best-seller lists). She makes a poet's circuit as well as an Irish American's journey into the spiritual and ancestral past--and present--and from Connacht and Ulster to Leinster and Munster, she proves a perfect guide, introducing long-departed ancestors and a land in which the human, the natural, and the divine come together. A dreamy, utterly enchanting walking meditation on Ireland's pagan heart. June Sawyers
