Book Description

Marion Nielson's dream of a lifetime is finally within her grasp. At dawn she will be admitted to Newgrange, the five thousand year old mound in the heart of Ireland, which is illuminated with the sun's rays just once a year—on the winter solstice.

While awaiting entry to the cairn, Marion reviews her tempestuous relationship with the enigmatic Peter, their gradual shift from friendship to explosive love, the ecstatic sex, Peter's gradual slump into hopelessness and depression, the bewildering feelings of rejection, and finally their heart-wrenching separation.

"Winter Solstice" explores the agonies and the ecstasies of loving and living, and the individual's attempt to cope with the ensuing chaos. This novel is a rich portrayal of love and relationships, loss and healing, and offers readers deep insight into ancient Celtic traditions of spirituality and rebirth.
