King of the Blind is a different read for me. It was refreshing to read something new and unique. I loved and admired the character of Turlough O’Carolan. His strength and determination is inspiring. I find this musical tale to be entertaining, beautiful and magical.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100%
