Heal Me, Brides Of Alba!

This book seems a bit more aimed at women than men, but it is fantasy-oriented nonetheless. The first book in the Brides of Alba series entitled “Healer” has hit the shelves. The book centers on “Brenna of Gowrys (who) lives alone in the wilderness and is hunted by the O’Byrnes. Her kinsmen expect her to lead them against their oppressors, but she’s not a warrior queen. She’s a gifted healer whose skills—and heart—are tested when a wounded stranger stumbles upon her hiding place. Will their love bring strife or peace to Alba? You can read on after the jump for a more in-depth description of the book and read about the author.

Here’s another synopsis of the book:

“Sixth-century Scotland—in the time of Arthur….

‘The Gowrys’ seed shall divide your mighty house and bring a peace beyond the ken of your wicked soul.’

Her mother’s dying prophecy to the chieftain Tarlach O’Byrne sentenced Brenna of Gowrys to twenty years of hiding. Twenty years of being hunted—by the O’Byrnes, who fear the prophecy, and by her kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a trained and gifted healer, not a warrior queen. So she lives alone in the wilderness with only her pet wolf for company. When she rescues a man badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he may be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and greed…and bring peace and renewed faith to the shattered kingdom?”
