The King’s Prey: Saint Dymphna of Ireland, written by Susan Peek, delves deep into the lives of two estranged Irish Catholic brothers, Brioc and Turlough, in their heroic attempt to save the beautiful Princess Dymphna from her insane father, and his sinful desires. After the loss of the beloved queen, King Daemon’s mind and actions border on sheer lunacy. He believes he must marry his innocent daughter, and make her his bride. Brioc, his massive but fun-loving wolf-hound, Samthann, along with Father Gerebran, take up the monumental task of protecting the princess from the king at all costs. Brioc’s pregnant wife, Lynnie, is swept up in the turmoil that becomes their lives, of running and hiding from the king’s soldiers. Lynnie loses sight of Brioc’s love for her as she assumes he has fallen in love with Dymphna. Prayer, faith and trust in the saints, God and Heaven provide our heroes and heroines with divine guidance and intervention.
