The Hare's Vision  in Waterstone's Coleraine

 The Hare's Vision is both a philosophical mystery and a romantic adventure following the journey an Irish monk in 575AD from his hermitage in the Egyptian desert back to his native Ireland with secret radical teachings delivered by Jesus while he lay dying after the crucifixion. The monk is pursued by an emissary of the Bishop of Rome as the teachings challenge the very existence of the Christian Church. The story comes to a dramatic climax on the north coast.

I am delighted to be able to tell you that the Hare’s Vision is now available in Waterstone’s Coleraine.

This highly original story is the result of two year’s research. It inspires new thinking about Ireland’s past and its impact on the present. It uses elements of adventure, religion and love to tell its tale. The book is aimed at readers with an interest in ancient Irish history who also wish to be entertained through the medium of traditional Irish storytelling.

“A glorious tale.....a brilliant story." Helen Mark, BBC.

“This is such an important book for the Irish people, ..... it could give the Irish the promise of a new start in life among each other. I am flabbergasted by this book. It remains exciting until the end (and afterwards somehow). The story is always unexpected and surprising.” Emy ten Seldam. Editor in Chief, BRES Magazine, Holland
“This is a remarkable book. It has a smooth narrative flow and a great visual appeal and I keep thinking of it in terms of a film, possibly along the lines of Lord of the Rings, it reads like a traditional Irish myth.” Colin McAlpin, author, film critic and journalist.
