Welcome back to the Twin Flames of Éire Trilogy virtual book tour. The videos below (or audios, if you prefer) are all about The Water and The Flame, which really carries the heart of the three novels through the story of Glenna and Rory.
Here in the Introduction, I set the stage for what’s to come from Glenna and Rory, the lovely pair of bards whose story this is. And I reveal how the threads of all the novels start weaving together.
The short note below offers readers insight into my musings on the water and the flame of Ireland and how the metaphor relates to our story. Just reading my recollections, I could hear the waves crashing and feel the warmth of turf fires burning cozily.
Sarah and Glenna don’t know it yet, but they share a favorite Celtic holiday—Bealtaine (the Irish word for May Day). That common tradition, which we learn about in the Prologue, is only the beginning of the adventures they’re going to share.
In Chapter One, Sarah’s musings about the events of four months ago, when her babies were conceived, lead her into wondering about Glenna, the young actress she’s met only a couple of times—but whom her inner guidance tells her she must try to find again.
Things really take off in Chapter Two, as we meet Glenna on closing night of the smash Broadway musical revival she’s been acting in for the past year. She worries about this being a big ending. But could the offer she gets later that night be a big beginning? Maybe even a path to the stardom she’s always wanted?
I loved writing this book and I hope you will enjoy reading it—especially with all of the fascinating characters who show up to challenge Rory’s vow that may keep him away from Glenna, and in Glenna’s theatrical career that may lead her further away from the love of her life.
May you to nestle into a cozy corner and let the story carry you away to the magic of Éire where true love waits for Glenna and Rory—if they’re willing to fight for it.
