A historical novel which is also a retelling of the tale of Deirdre and Naoise, with characteristic '80s delineation of male/female relationships, showing men as brutes and women thereby finding their feminist consciousness (would only...but I don't think it happened that way.) The sex act is nearly the only means used to explore the facets of late Celtic society in Ireland. There are many roots--big roots--and many caves--narrow caves.

A well written novel that, though most certainly not intended for children or young adults, depicted what was more likely a realistic version of the ancient Druid culture and practices. Regardless of historical merit, it was a very well done read.
