Condition: Fine


Paperback, in Fine condition. Reprint. Pp iv, 256, with a foreword by Naomi Mitchison. A 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. S5.
