Goddess Born is one of those novels that is quite easy to read and hard to put down. When I read the blurb on the book and it said Celtic Mythology, I was right there, as I enjoy reading about anything Celtic. It's true, I am a fanatic. Selah has a predicament that she needs to take care of right now. With a tragedy in her family, she will be forced to marry Nathan Crowly, who is a despicable individual for sure. Selah has a gift of being able to heal people and she needs to keep that secret. In 1700's, The Quaker community of Hopewell are a suspicious lot, so if word got out about her abilities she could be declared a witch and punished as such. We all know how that worked out for people in Salem. Selah flees to Boston to meet her cousin who she will be marrying, There is a tradition in the family to marry cousins so with the hopes that when she goes back home she can evade Nathan and continue to do what she is meant to do be a healer. Things of course don't go as planned and...well the story continues from there...not going to tell you anymore, you will just have to go and get a copy.
I thought the book was well written and of course a story with a bit of humor and mystery is the best kind. There will be another book to the series and I look forward to reading that one also. Great story!
