CREDO - by Melvyn Bragg
My last book read for the challenge and it was a struggle. Skipped quite a lot of pages, maybe because I was not in the right frame of mind at the time.
The story was very heavy on the religious theme which I felt could have been softened a bit.
Maybe down the track I could try again.
Briefly the story is part historical and family saga. A young Irish princess, Bega, defies your father, as she does not want to marry her chosen husband. Her actions and choices set off a chain of events.
I had bought this book many years ago and was looking forward to reading it, mainly as it covers early Irish history etc. Oh well, there is always another time.
