Great historical fiction about the spread and demise of Christianity in the Middle Ages in Ireland and Gaul. Gives a great perspective on what Christians (and more directly, Catholics) had to go through in order to learn and love their faith.

I was hoping for more from this book, but wasn't entirely disappointed. My intent in reading this book was to see if it would hold the interest of sooner of my kids for independent reading. I don't think it will. The story is quite subtle, more suitable to young readers who like religious historical fiction.
Some theological issues and it could be better written, but I really like the overall theme and it was an interesting read.
