Rebellion has always been in the O'Reilly family's blood. So when faced with the tragic death of her brother during Northern Ireland's infamous Troubles, a teenage Nora joined the IRA to fight for her country's freedom. Now, more than a decade later, Nora is haunted by both her past and vivid dreams of a man she has never met.
When she is given a relic belonging to Brigid of Kildare, patron saint of Ireland, the mystical artifact transports her back eighty years - to the height of Ireland's brutal civil war. There she meets the alluring stranger from her dreams, who has his own secrets - and agenda. Taken out of her own time, Nora has the chance to alter the fortunes of Ireland and maybe even save the ones she loves. In this captivating and adventurous novel from Jodi McIsaac, history belongs to those with the courage to change it.

My wife and I have just now finished listening to Jodi McIsaac's first novel in her "Revolutionary" series. We're not sure if this is Ms. McIsaac's first novel. For us, it started somewhat slowly and built up speed as it progressed. The writing became smoother and the action more intense until the end when - well, there'll be no spoilers here. Suffice it to say that we were completely delighted to find that the second book, "Summon the Queen" had just been released today! So excuse us for not writing more but we've just downloaded it and want to get started. So treat yourself and Enjoy!!!
Jodi has done it again. This book quickly sucks you in and keeps you interested in Nora's story. It is well written and the characterization was perfect. Alana Kerr Collins is a brilliant narrator. She does have an Irish accent, but her pace and tone make very easy to understand. This audio book was a wonderful experience. Like all of Jodi's books, I will read and listen again and again.
"i wanted to like this"
interesting premise but i struggled to finish. The writing wasn't terrible, i just really struggled with the characters (I didn't care about nora at all) and as someone who lives in ireland i found the irish colloquialisms jarring- they just didn't seem to flow.
