mystical love story full of symbolism, Celtic folklore, the second
sight and other dreams and rituals. The narrator, Drost, tells
the story of his life in Bronze Age Scotland from his childhood
as the chosen companion and help-mate of his future "king"
up to his own approaching death. The author has described how
the action in the story and the feelings of the characters came
to her through a series of waking dreams which may well explain
the realism of the narrative. In this essentially pre-Christian
tale we find traces of familiar legends and myths such as the
love story of Tristan and Isolde, the Celtic paradise Tir nan
Og and King Arthur's beloved Avalon. With a foreword by Naomi
to an almost uncanny extent in conveying the atmosphere and quality
of life among the pre-historic Celts." Cordelia Oliver in
