5.0 out of 5 stars A Collection of Short Stories 3 Feb 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Peter Tremayne is the fiction pseudonym of a well-known authority on the ancient Celts, who has utilised his knowledge of the Brehon law system and 7th-Century Irish society to create a new concept in detective fiction.

The Sister Fidelma novels are taking on almost cult proportions and are becoming ever more popular with each offering from the author, whose obvious knowledge of the times and subjects he writes about shines out like a beacon on the shore.

A second collection of short stories featuring Sister Fidelma, the sharp-witted religious sleuth who tackles the most baffling of crimes in her other role as advocate of the law courts of Ireland, using the ancient Brehon Law system.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sister Fidelma series. 26 Sep 2013

I had read some of the Sister Fidelma books in the past. The short stories don't seem to give you much idea how good they were. If you want to find out how women had power in those days this is for you.

I am thorough enjoying this book of short stories based in early Irish times when Christianity was not yet entirely ruled by Rome with is strict adherence to their view on things spiritual and its bias towards male dominance and absolute obedience without educating the masses sufficiently to teach themselves. It is an eye opener to learn how "modern" the Irish laws and behaviour of the people were in those times. Women were equal to men, had the right to inherit in their own names, had the ability to rise highly in trades and professions, religious doctrine allowed for marriage or cohabitation within religious scholars and teachers (nuns and priests etc) the law was a mixture of ideas from Rome mixed with older and wiser more ancient laws. It has only taken us another 1500 years or so to achieve similar laws and modes of behaviour that were common in those far off days...... And we call it "Progress" !

I can't wait to read more, this is my 3rd book, the others were full length novels and this, the 3rd, is a collection of short stories all beautifully written with style and wit.
