This is a great story. I got a lot out of it. I discovered a great deal, historically, about the way of life and the social structure and customs of the 9th century, seen through the eyes of a young woman, known as Ceridwen.
This book was not quite what I expected. Yet, in many ways exceeded expectations. Almost every chapter reveals something new. It was a journey of discovery. For Ceridwen, it was a coming of age story. There is a sense of wonder and delight as I read this tale. At times, I even got a sense of the mystic and the magical. Though there is no real evidence of those in the story.
I certainly will be reading more in this enchanting saga.
