Imbolc: Bridget's Return is the first novella in the Celtic Fire Series. The Celtic Fire Series of novellas take place during each of the four cross-quarter days of the Celtic Calendar, represented by the Wheel of the Year. The Celts celebrated these days with four Fire Festivals marking the transition of the sun throughout the seasons.
Imbolc, February 1st and 2nd, celebrated the midpoint between winter and spring. It commemorated the time of rebirth in the cycle of life, the warmth of the late-winter sun and a time for planting the first, early crops. Imbolc is associated with Brighid of the Tuatha De Danann and later with the Christian Saint Bridget and Candlemas. Brighid was revered as patroness of the Druids.
Imbolc: Bridget's Return weaves together a pivotal event in the history of the Druids and the Celts at the time of the Roman conquest of Britain with the legendary Brighid of the mythical Tuatha De Danann into the story of a romance that has no future until an ancient debt is paid.
Bridget Mor travels to Ireland to trace her roots. What she discovers about her ancestry and true heritage leads her to a destiny entwined with Ireland's myths, legends and history.
Seamus Gwyffuid is bound to the quaint fishing village of Rathmor and the reclusive community living on the island of Inis Steisse.
Seamus knows it is folly to believe that a Gwyffiud and a Mor could ever be together. Bridget refuses to let ancient history come between them. The ancient Debt that binds Seamus will demand a high price.
