About the Book Singing the Dawn, is set off the west coast of Ireland, on islands beyond the ninth wave where the Otherworld can be glimpsed. The seven women who form the Communion of Star of the Sea in the twenty-first century are the inheritors of a way of life founded in the ninth century by Maire, a woman forced by a Viking Raid on the Monastery of Kildare, to flee to the west. On the shores of Lough Corrib, she encounters a Woman who gives her the task of beginning a Community whose role will be to prepare for a future time when once more the Feminine Sacred will be honoured on the earth. The members of Star of the Sea live as hermits on the islands, gathering to celebrate the eight earth festivals of the Celtic Calendar. The story begins in 2012 with a new arrival, mysteriously drawn to the islands.
