From Our Editors

Ireland is a land of great folklore and mythic figures. One of the most legendary medieval legends is that of Brendan. In this novel, Frederick Buechner takes an in-depth look at this sixth-century Irish saint as his friend Finn saw him. Buechner takes readers back 1,500 years and explores Celtic mythology and the moral messages that these legends convey. This lively tale will appeal to anyone with an interest in Celtic lore and history. Other novels by Buechner include Longing for Home and Storm.
