A Cage of Roots

Publisher: O'Brien

When Ayla finds herself buried in a tiny mud cell, she doesn't know how she is going to get home. For she is not only miles below the earth, but also thousands of years back in  pre-historic Ireland… very different to home with her three giant uncles or her past life in a New York orphanage. But Ayla not only has family trying to find her, her three best friends are also ready to take the dangerous path into the distant past to save her from a shocking destiny which has been tracking her for centuries.

A gripping read with a feisty heroine, about time travel, loyalty, magic, betrayal and bravery which convincingly captures both contemporary and ancient Ireland.
