The Raven Girl

A novel by

What if a Native American girl came to medieval Europe... before Columbus sailed to the New World! Could it happen? Did it happen? The Raven Girl tells the tale of Marra, a young Caribbean pearl-fisher who escapes her Basque-whaler captors and ends up stranded on a remote isle off Ireland's Connemara coast in 1488 A.D.
Her golden-brown skin and raven-black hair frightens the pale and primitive islanders, who fear she is a witch or sea creature. Meanwhile, in Galway City, a young abbey scholar, intrigued by reports of a 'dark mermaid' cast ashore his native isle, sets out to unravel the mystery of this 'raven girl,' falling dangerously in love with her, A medieval teen romance, set in the dawning Age of Exploration.

"Aeden and Marra are earnest and endearing, and their world is well-drawn. A compelling, fast-paced story."
--Publishers Weekly

"A brilliant book."
--Historical Novel Review (online)

"Will appeal to both adults and mature teen audiences."
--Midwest Book Review
