Of Gifts and the Goddess

Greed led to the slaughter of the village of Lough Sheelin, but not all lost their lives. Anne McCleary, with her unusual gift, leads the seven remaining members of her Clan as they wander the hills and valleys of Ireland. Duncan O’Connor believes his brother to have been murdered at Lough Sheelin and vows to put an end to the raiding of his lands by the McCleary. Anne and her companions are captured, but the burning of villages on O’Connor land continues. Two other survivors from the Battle of Lough Sheelin have spent the past five years planning and exacting revenge upon Clan O’Connor. Anne and Duncan must overcome years of lies and deceit in order to thwart the enemies who threaten to take them both.

  1. Hard to put down I was a bit skeptical about this book as I was afraid that it would contain a thick Irish dialog that would be difficult to read. Imagine my surprise when upon opening the book, I was drawn into Anne’s story so deeply that I could barely put the book down. If you are looking for a book that is a mixture of culture, romance, adventure, and even a bit of history, all wrapped up into an entertaining novel, this is a must read. I look forward to the Michelle’s future writings.

  2. A Fascinating Tale of Scottish History Michele Venne has written a spellbinding tale packed with action, romance, and mystery. Combining history of real clans with interesting folklore, she has created a story I didn’t want to let go. I’ve interviewed Michele for authorswebtv.com, and am looking forward to her next book. If it’s even half as good as Of Gifts and the Goddess, it will be another hit! A great read, Michele.

  3. Exceptional Being very busy with multiple jobs, it took me almost a year to finish other books I had left on the shelf, half read, and begin Ms. Venne’s novels…I wish I would have just started right away! What an exceptional story she tells. Filled with history, mystery and romance – I couldn’t put it down. “Of Gifts and the Goddess” is a must read!
