John Michaels, estranged from his father, finds himself in Ireland seeking clues to his identity. A college teacher and happily married with a son, Sean, Michaels was recently fired after a confrontation with a powerful, arrogant industrialist.
He accidentally meets Megan O’Rourke, a former graduate student. As each fights a powerful, mystical attraction for each other, they accidentally uncover the answer to an ancient Irish mystery—the puzzling Flight of the Earls in 1607.
Why the Earls—the cream of Irish nobility—fled Ireland so quickly has been a mystery that no one has ever been able to explain.
Shadowed by a powerful, avenging force, Michaels must make a choice. What he decides will impact himself, his family, his father, and ultimately the relationship between the Irish Republic and England.
Steeped in history, Celtic lore, and Irish tradition, Celts and Kings is the story of a forbidden love that goes back 400 years. This is a must read for those who not only want to understand the past, but also the problems facing modern Ireland.
