When a British princess falls in love with a Roman officer destined for imperial greatness, their forbidden desire exacts an unexpected price: banishment from Avalon. Journeying outside the enchanted isle, Helena grows from maiden to mother to wisewoman, experiencing both joy—with the birth of her child—and loss, when politics forces her lover to choose between the Empire and her.

Then Helena’s son, Constantine, becomes Emperor, and her position as Empress-Mother propels her to prominence at a crucial turning point in Western history. Seeking a way to bridge the pagan world of the Goddess and the new Christian Empire, Helena embarks on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to find the truth that transcends both the old religion and the new.

    " Very evident where Zimmer-Bradley left off and her assistant picked up. Still a good book, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julia Coty | 2/7/2014

    " I enjoyed the balance between fantasy and historical accuracy in this book. I felt that the author depicted the time period quite well and didn't make the magic/fantasy aspect of it overwhelming. There was a focus on spiritual/magical occurrences, which made it more believable. The author's writing flowed well and allowed me to imagine strongly what was occurring. "
