Brigid's Charge

(2000)
A novel by

 
 
Brigid's Charge is the gripping tale of Deborah Leeds, a courageous young woman who emigrated to the colony of New Jersey in 1704. Her most precious possession was a book of her grandmother's herbal remedies that contained the charge of a Celtic goddess to heal the sick and comfort the dying. In the New World Deborah married, bore many children, and among the Quakers acquired a strong reputation as a healer. Yet she had to live cautiously because of her pagan beliefs and a loving but dangerous relationship with Erin, a fiery Irish woman who also possessed powerful knowledge. As Deborah was about to enter her crone years, an unexpected pregnancy shattered her world. Sightings of her alleged progeny, now known as the Jersey Devil, have continued into our own time. Brigid's Charge received a Benjamin Franklin Award for fiction.
