Red-Robed Priestess

(2011)
(The fourth book in the Maeve Chronicles series)
A novel by

 
After a long, eventful life that has brought her through slavery to the Resurrection garden, through the controversies of the early Church to a hermit cave in southern Gaul, Maeve, the Celtic Magdalen, comes full circle. With her daughter Sarah, Maeve returns to the British Isles to seek her first-born daughter taken from her by the druids more than forty years ago. The night before her channel crossing, Maeve encounters a man she first mistakes for Jesus' ghost. He is equally haunted, and the two are drawn into a moonstruck liaison that will entwine their lives in "an impossible Celtic knot." He is none other than General Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, the newly appointed Governor of Britain, destined to defeat the Iceni Queen Boudica in one of the bloodiest battles in history.

And Boudica is none other than Maeve's lost child.

Fully accessible to new readers, Red-Robed Priestess will be deeply satisfying to fans who have accompanied Maeve on her journey, reuniting them with beloved characters from the earlier novels, especially Magdalen Rising. At sixty something, Maeve is as feisty as ever with her distinctive sense of irreverent humor very much intact, but she has also grown - and so has the author. In this final volume of the acclaimed Maeve Chronicles, Elizabeth Cunningham confronts a political and emotional complexity that speaks to our times. Maeve's courageous and compassionate witness of an epic tragedy she cannot prevent will challenge and comfort all of us who have ever faced intractable circumstances of our own.
