AD 79 and Agricola, the ruthless governor of Roman Britain, is turning his attentions to the last unconquered territory in Britain - Alba, Scotland. Rhiann is a courageous and beautiful Scottish princess and priestess scarred by her violent past. Of noble blood, she faces what for her is the ultimate sacrifice - a forced marriage - to protect the freedom of her people.

Eremon is an enigmatic Irish prince in exile, who must seek an alliance elsewhere to regain his throne. Will he prove himself to be the man who can unite the squabbling Celtic tribes against the more ominous threat of Rome?

With war and chaos looming for her people, Rhiann finds herself drawn into an unexpected journey of the spirit and heart, which will reveal the true purpose of her life.

THE WHITE MARE is the first novel in the Dalriada Trilogy and marks the arrival of an outstanding new talent in historical fiction. In the grand tradition of the historical epic, it is a tale of heroic deeds, of kinship and kingship, and the struggle for power, honour, freedom, and love.

Good historical fiction about a time when there were tribes, and the Romans were threatening to take over people's land.
Love story, and war story in one.
Not too mushy, as there is a lot of pain in the romance, and a lot of self-realization.
Would recommend it to anyone interested in this period of historical fiction, or romance novels.
