#BookTalks: What book made me a reader?

So this week I thought I would share what was the first book I ever really read.  Well that is a tale.  When I was 19 we ended up being homeless for almost a year.  During that time I didnt have much to do so I ended up grabbing a book that I paid .50 cents for and well now I own a few copies of it since its so hard to find and out of print.  The book is below.  Its a great fantasy and its adult but an easy read.  I LOVED it.  I really need to read it again soon! 

Mistress of the Eagles by 

Long before the British ruled Ireland, fiercely proud clans controlled the Emerald Isle. Bold chieftains, valiant warriors, mighty magicians, and indomitable women, they inhabited a land rich with promise and rife with treachery.

From stormy Eagle Island beautiful Arrah O'Donnel fled the horrors of an arranged marriage to seek her fortune on the high seas. There, Seaghan MacNamara, cast out from his own clan, would pursue her, determined to possess the woman who had inflamed his very soul.

Fate entwined them in a powerful web of lust and betrayal, sorcery and seduction. Their love would defy all the laws of Ireland, Christendom, and reason. Their story would become legend—the spellbinding tale of a bold woman who dared to become the mistress of her own destiny and a passion that defied man and God.

Born in France and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where she now lives, Elona Malterre is a recipient of the Bliss Carman Award for poetry. Her love of Ireland was sparked when she took a course in Irish literature leading to an M.A. in English. 

She has taught literature and creative writing at the University of Calgary and at Mount Royal College, where she currently teaches part-time. Elona is the author of two historical novels for adults, The Celts and Mistress of the Eagles.
