Every hero needs a secret identity.

“After touching the warped post, Aisling tried to wipe her skin clean of the black smudges. Little streaks of white shone through the charred-black wood that had once comprised the walls, the floor, the ceiling. In hair, white streaks indicate age, but in this burned-out one-story building, they were a reminder of a time before fire and ruin.”

While a scarred world rebuilds, Aisling gave up globetrotting to embrace the destiny she long rejected. But in a forgotten corner of Ireland, rain squenching Aisling’s red curls into corkscrews, this hero in training also has to figure out her secret identity.

Banter. Travel. A short jaunt into the heart of meaning and purpose. If you like decisive women and yearn for a new type of hero, then get ready for a trip to “The Eighth Wonder of the World.”
