Three characters from the past, three people from the present, an ancient brooch that carries a curse, all now linked between both worlds, and all having to deal with long held jealousy and a rivalry that could undo them all.
This book was way too long. It just dragged on and on going back and forth with the characters going crazy and ugh, this took me forever to read well, 3 months for me is forever. The cursed brooch pin and being spoken to or possessed by long-dead people just isn't my thing, sorry.
Perhaps if you're into that sort of thing, you might enjoy this I wish this would have been only about Cartimandua and not Vivienne, then it would have been a better story. In theory, this should have blown me away, in fact - I pretty much only finished it because I'm stubborn. Well researched, as far as I can tell, I liked some of the secondary characters, and there are some lovely passages, but the plot structure is, I think, broken.
On top of that, the character development doesn't exist, and the constantly shifting point of view issue really doesn't help. Here at Walmart.

No catches, no fine print just unadulterated book loving, with your favourite books saved to your own digital bookshelf. Another intriguing piece of historical writing. Three women from the modern day get drawn in to the history of a Celtic queen and on travelling to the site of where she lived find themselves haunted by her very real presence. Two thousand years ago, as the Romans invade Britannia, the princess who will become the powerful queen of the great tribe of the Brigantes, watches the enemies of her people come ever closer.
Cartimandua's world is, from the start, a maelstrom of love and conflict; revenge and retribution.

In the present day, Edinburgh-based historian, Viv Lloyd Rees, has immersed herself in the legends surrounding the Celtic queen. She has written a book and is working on a dramatisation of the young queen's life with the help of actress, Pat Hebden. Cartimandua's life takes one unexpected turn after another as tragedy changes the course of her future. But the young queen has formidable enemies — among them Venutios, her childhood sparring partner, and Medb, a woman whose jealousy threatens not only her happiness but her life.
