I'm reading my way through all of the books in the Sister Fidelma series. I love historical fiction because this is how history should be both learned and experienced by readers. Instead of dry facts and dates books like these help to show what life was like for those peoples of the past and how specific forces impacted their lives. We can never know exactly what they experienced but we are pulled into their world, their time.

Suggestion to potential readers...read these books in order beginning at book #1. Otherwise you will miss the subtle personality and emotional changes experienced by Sister Fidelma. No more hints...find out for yourself :)

Miranda I totally love your statement about learning through historical fiction!! I am currently in high school and have always learned better through seeing a time period through the eyes of a fictional character. Thank you for so eloquently describing that aspect of history!
