If you're interested in the women who lived in the 1500s in Ireland, you'll enjoy this book. Grace O'Malley was known in her times as the "Queen of the Sea", the queen of pirates. This was the first of Anne's books which I read while in Ireland, last summer. After finishing Grace O'Malley, I was hooked on her books. Her writing style of the history of Ireland is easy for any reader, at any level, to understand. The story comes to life and you soon find yourself, there, back in time" with the characters in this book.
