Waves of Light
by Maggie Logan

The blood of the Tuatha de Dannan tribe flows through the young Irish princess, Isolde, who believes in the Old Ways. Isolde honours earth, air, wind, and fire and worships the Mother Goddess, Danu, who breathed life into the Isle of Eire. But just as Isolde is poised to take the throne, she encounters the winds of change in her beloved land. When her lover, Tristan, comes to her from King Arthur’s court, they go together into the countryside to learn about Christianity, the faith brought in by the Romans, which is rapidly pushing out the ancient pagan religions of Ireland. In an enchanting blend of myth, folklore, and history, Waves of Light takes the reader on a journey of discovery in which the budding Queen Isolde learns that ideals must sometimes be set aside to make room for the new, and that leadership is about creating change that can be believed in. Set in a pivotal time in Irish history, this companion book to Waves of Darkness offers a fresh, original, and beguiling take on Celtic folklore and culture.
