Review: Sorcery, suspense and mystery are all abundant things in the beautifully written book, The Fire Opal by Regina McBride. Maeve O’Tullagh, a young girl, lived happily with her family of two brothers, a mother and a father in Ard Marcha, Ireland. When Nuala, their mother, has another baby, things couldn’t get better for Maeve and her family. But after the daughter Ishleen, is born, Nuala goes into a coma-like trance immediately after the birth.
