Item description for Spring Rain on the Wind by Kristina O'Donnelly...

The gripping saga of four exceptional women, Lady Mairenn Morgan of Wales, Spring Rain and Bright Star of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and Bedelia of Georgia, bound by tragedy, a love that transcended time, an ancient Goddess, and a Warlock who haunted them through generations. Review by Rob Preece, Author and Publisher: "After attempting to burn Mairenn Morgan at the stake for witchcraft, her cousin Sir Adrian Maddox, an evil warlock, pursues Mairenn to the new world of Colonial America. There he links with an Indian Shaman, granting the Shaman power and even immortality in exchange for his support in pursuing first Mairenn and then three more generations of women descending from Mairenn. Because Mairenn's blood holds the one threat to the wizard's ultimate victory. Author Kristina O'Donnelly spins a compelling story of magic, the attempts by both Indian and whites to create a sustainable Cherokee Nation, Colonial and early US history, and generations of women who must confront both the powers of evil and the difficulties of walking upon two different, violently opposing worlds."

Reviews - What do customers think about Spring Rain on the Wind?

Spicy blend of history, fantasy, and myth  Aug 24, 2007
SPRING RAIN ON THE WIND
I am a loyal follower of Kristina O'Donnelly's novels, and when I sit down with any of her new titles, I expect to be entertained as well as taught something new, even provocative. But being Irish, I did not think that SPRING RAIN ON THE WIND would show me any new vistas. Well, to my surprised pleasure, it did. At the very least, I pondered the Scots/Irish people's contribution to the formation of the United States of America. Blending shades of magic, druidism, Cherokee history, a love triangle, conflicting civilizations (Cherokee in particular, native American Indian in general, vs European settlers), romance, passion, time-travel through genetic memory, SPRING RAIN ON THE WIND distinguishes itself as a different fare than O'Donnelly's hitherto mostly Aegean/Anatolia/Middle East dominated exotic novels, bringing her closer to her own roots. But all that aside, SPRING RAIN ON THE WIND carries her customary stamp of a darn good read! Looking forward to its sequel, Ms. O'Donnelly!
 
Wonderful blend of history and magic  Aug 23, 2007
After attempting to burn Mairenn Morgan at the stake for witchcraft, her cousin, an evil wizard pursues Mairenn to the new world of Colonial America. There he links with an Indian Shaman, granting the Shaman power and even immortality in exchange for his support in pursuing first Mairenn and then three more generations of women descending from Mairenn. Because Mairenn's blood holds the one threat to the wizard's ultimate victory.

When her parents are murdered, Bedelia (Spring Rain) Connall is adopted by Micahel Connall, who raises her as a white settler, but mixed-blood Bedelia wants to claim her Cherokee self as well as her white. When she finally has a chance to visit the capital of the Cherokee Nation, however, Bedelia discovers that this ancient people is under attack both from within and from their white neighbors who see the Indians as blocking their desperate need for land. Bedelia attracts the attention (and lust) of three men--white Indian Agent Julian, Indian Warrior Hector (Fire Panther) and shaman Black Eagle. All want Bedelia--desire her for her intelligence, wit, and beauty. All also see a hint of her power--with Black Eagle in particular able to reach out to that power. Bedelia fears Black Eagle, desires Fire Panther, and feels intellectually bound to Julian. Discovering and heeding her own heart will prove to be a challenge--just as it was for her grandmother, the original Spring Rain.

Author Kristina O'Donnelly spins a compelling story of magic, the attempts by both Indian and whites to create a sustainable Cherokee Nation, Colonial and early US history, and four generations of women who must confront both the powers of evil and the difficulties of chosing which man to love.
