It is an important day for Mughain, daughter of the king of Dal nAraide. She meets two very important people. One is Brendan, son of the neighboring king of Dal Riata. The other is a Saxon slave girl, Gwyneth. In this time where myth and history blur, Mughain and Brendan fall in love. But Brendan has a secret that could destroy everything, and Mughain must make a choice that could put two kingdoms at war forever.Praise for The Sea at Mughain (first edition): "This charming novella . . . packs plenty of Celtic intrigue, magic, and romance swirling like an Irish mist around the heroine, the king's fearless sixteen-year-old daughter, Mughain." -- Renaissance Magazine"Set in Ireland's lush and mystical past, it infuses ancient history and mythology to create a family saga of love, isolation, and the inherent problems with being a minor princess in a kingdom of old . . . Sparlin introduces us to vibrant landscapes and a host of interesting characters, all of which are woven into an intriguing and timeless storyline." -- Beyond Centauri.
