An Irish shepherd, early in the twentieth century, narrowly avoids a muddy death, and escapes with an ancient relic. A good luck charm? Not much. The academic world casts an acquisitive eye on the site, and isn’t too particular how they get it.

Amidst haunting, evocative descriptions of the Irish countryside, Sutton presents the Irish country folk with a remarkable dignity of character. They’re simple in their lifestyle, but they’re definitely no fools. And he contrasts these with villains you’ll love to hate. The outcome is intriguing and mysterious, with a uniquely Irish touch of the paranormal.
