Prior to making her final pledge as a druid, the young seer Sibeal visits the island of Inis Eala, where the Sight leads her to Felix, a survivor of a Norse shipwreck who has no memory of his past. As the island's healers struggle to keep Felix alive, he and Sibeal form a natural bond. But Sibeal's vocation is her true calling, and she must choose between the two things that tug at her soul - her spirituality and a chance at love....

Yes, because I love the story that Ms. Marillier wrote.
There was something about her accent... it bothered me, and I can't exactly say why. Also, her accents for each character just sort of blended together, so I was never a hundred percent sure who she was supposed to be unless it was said, or where they were supposed to be from. I just kind of wish that they had stuck with Ms. Landor for this book as well since she did such a good job with the others.
This book has always tugged at my heartstrings. :)
Terry Donnelly was the narrator of this one and I did enjoy her narration except for her Norse male voices they just sounded odd I can't describe exactly what was wrong with them but they were just off and didn't sound at all Norse to me. other than that she did a good job.
Read in Paperform in 2011 re-read 2013 on audio.
Another great addition to the Sevenwaters saga! In this one we follow Sibeal on her path to become a druid ,Ciaran has sent her to the island of Inis Eala to spend the summer with her sisters before she makes her final pledge to become a full druid. But as with all daughters of Sevenwaters her path takes some twists and turns. Also in this book we had some continuation of Clodagh and Cathal’s story but their story is far from over so I look forward to more from them.
This was a really good story and I loved the look back in stories that were told in the hall it made me remember some of the details I had forgotten from the previous books since it has been awhile since I’ve read them. It also reminded me how many generations of the Sevenwaters family I have come to know and love. Sorcha’s great grandchildren were born in this book and I guess I’d kind of forgotten just how far this story has come.
The story did wrap up but there is definitely more story to tell and look forward to the next book in this wonderful series.
4 ½ Stars
Could have been a well written story? Not a constant litany of moaning, whining, pathetic repetitive comments. A journey with no seeming destination.
disappointment and tedium
Don't know what Marillier was thinking with this one.
