Oh, I love this. I'm so glad you added the note at the bottom—the move from fantasy to fact is superb.

I think I was angrier than Niamh! Such foolishness - thank God for St. Patrick's Easter fire and for Christ's light. The footnote was a great ending. Wonderful writing.
I love historical fiction or when it is legend mixed with facts. Great piece. I loved the spark of hope that glowed and gave a new vision to the people. So often Satan tries to use his methods of tyrancy to cause us to lose hope and feel crushed in this life. However in Christ, there is always light and hope...

WOW, this is EXCELLENT!! What an absorbing, well-written story!! (There are some who still observe Beltane's fire rituals, and we need to continue to shine the true Light in the face of such darkness!) CONGRATULATIONS

Great story wound around the topic--I enjoyed the heart of your MC and the footnote brought this all together nicely. Congrats on your placement.
