Mary Ann Bernal

Author Mary Ann Bernalabout this book: In the second book of the series, The Briton and the Dane: Birthright, King Guthrum learns that his bastard son, Rigr, is raising an army to usurp his father's throne. Treachery and betrayal affect both courts as the stage is set for the final battle between father and son.

My interest in the brutality of the times focuses on the actual warrior and the family left behind. Whether one is attacking or defending the land, there is a warrior mindset that seems inbred, being passed down over the centuries - the warrior spirit, comprised of honor, courage, giving one's life for a belief.

My intent with this underlying theme is to shed light on the plight of the modern military family. In today's society, communication is almost instantaneous, whereas in the Ninth Century, it could take years to learn the fate of a loved one. My characters reveal the anxiety associated when a loved one must fight for their king and country, the same anxiety experienced today.

a review by Brenda Perlin

The Briton and the Dane - Birthright by Mary Ann Bernal has such a beautiful story. I loved the history, the characters and the storyline. The author writes with such passion that you can feel as you are there witnessing the scenes rather than reading about them. There had to be a ton of research that went into writing these incredible stories. I found them to be eye-opening and inspiring.

Birthright has so much to offer but I liked the romantic parts the best. They were so realistic and sweet. There are so many layer that unfold as you read these books.
