"A fantastic page-turner." —Historical Novels Review
Based on a true story of the first witchcraft trial in Ireland, The Burning Time is the riveting tale of one extraordinary noblewoman, Lady Alyce Kyteler and her fight for a country’s soul.

When the Catholic Church brings the Inquisition to Ireland, Lady Alyce Kyteler refuses to grant them power over her lands or her people, and refuses to stop the practice of The Old Religion. Declared a dangerous heretic by the Pope’s emissary, Lady Alyce determines to fight back. Against the penalty of being burned at the stake, she risks all to protect her people, her faith, and her beloved Ireland.

The Burning Time is a vivid account of an astonishing but little-known historic figure and a gripping tale of bravery, treachery, guile, and redemption.


American Booksellers Association, 2006 "Book Sense" pick

"Reccomended Quality Fiction List 2007," by the American Library Association Feminist Task Force

 The Burning Time is a literary potion, a finely written and deeply wise book.—Eve Ensler

"Like a torch thrown into a haystack, this book illuminates the dark political night we seem to be slipping into today."—Verge
