World Without End,’ by Ken Follett. It’s a sequel to ‘Pillars of the Earth’ and takes up the story of the same village about 200 years later in the mid-14th century. I think the first book was better, though.”

I have just finished Confessions of a Pagan Nun by Kate Horsley. In the prologue Ms. Horsley says that it is a translation of some codices which date back to AD 450 approx. found in excavations near Kildare in Ireland. The codices were written by a Druidess turned Christian nun named Gwynneve. They contain her life story and her death. The death account was added at the end by her friend and mentor, Giannon. I loved the poetic like prose of this tale. The original which was written in Gaelic follows the style of Gaelic prose in it's flowery imagery and embellishment. It is a style that flows off the tongue with such ease that thoughts flow like a fast rushing stream down a mountainside. A great book which I highly recommend if you can find it.
