It's funny that a person who writes about the ancient British isles and their druidic spirituality should have written a completely honest and convincing account of a particular character's conversion to Christianity. I found his story more gripping, more "real", than a lot of the fluff that is published nowadays (yes, I do acknowledge that that fluff is worthwhile to many readers out there).
I wonder how some Christians would feel about this--that a writer with a professed interest in pagan spirituality should write about ancient Christians with as much respect as she does for the Celtic culture in which she places those Christians (these are monks that have traveled abroad to live the Word of God).

(I'm talking about Juliet Marillier.)
