This title presents the dramatic story of the Norman conquest of Ireland in the 12th century. It is full of battles and warfare, but a story of love, too, between an unlikely pair - wilful and wild Irish princess Aoife, and Strongbow, the greatest of the Norman knights to come to Ireland. It also presents a clash of cultures and a vivid story of one of the Greats of Irish history.

Industry Reviews

'This is an ambitious and wholly successful recreation of the life and times of Strongbow, daringly presented in alternate chapters as the narratives of the hero himself and of Aoife, destined to become his wife.' -- Children's Books in Ireland * Children's Books in Ireland * '... the Norman knight, Richard de Clare, and his wife-to-be, Aoife, tell their stories in alternative chapters. The device works well, the incredibly complex history of the period is made comprehensible and the reader is spellbound ...' -- The Irish Times * The Irish Times *
