“The druids foretold that Balor of the Evil Eye would die by the hand of the son of his daughter Ethne, so he imprisoned her in a tower guarded by many women and ordered that no man should come near her.
Ethne grew up a beautiful maiden. Sometimes, as she stood gazing from her tower, she saw the ships of men pass by, and sometimes she dreamt of a man with shining hair, but the women would give her no answer when she spoke of her dreams.’ Excerpt from THE SILVER ARM by #JimFitzPatrick
