Title: A Call to Faith and Freedom

By Barbara Watkins

Genre: Historical Fiction
Title: A Call to Faith and Freedom
Author: Shirley A. Roe

“A Call to Faith and Freedom” is a masterpiece of historical fiction set in seventh-century Scotland. Journey back through this period of time when Christians utilized treachery and torment against the Celts in an effort to have power over the land and ultimately replace the present religion with their own.

Upon reading the first page, I was immediately hooked. Roe’s depiction to vivid detail is impeccable to say the least. I journeyed alongside knights as they rode horseback into battle and I frolicked barefoot through lush green meadows. I followed Moreall and Armand as they answered their call to duty bravely fighting a battle to protect their heritage.

Shirley Roe has succeeded in writing not only an entertaining piece of historical fiction but an informative and educational one as well. I will admit, before reading her novel, I had very little knowledge of the Celts, their philosophy, or their religious practices. It is obvious the author did an enormous amount of research to write a book of this magnitude and I commend her on the final product.

Although the storyline is set in seventh-century, the theme is one we can all relate to today. “A Call to Faith and Freedom” is a story of faith, loyalty, and human endurance. I enjoyed this read tremendously and I am honored to have had the opportunity to review it. I recommend with five stars!
