Synopsis:

Archaeologist Donald Gladstone knows there is no solid evidence that King Arthur ever existed, yet medieval tales of this legendary warrior must have found their inspiration somewhere, and Donald is determined to discover their true source.

A chance encounter with the beguiling Julia Llewellyn, a gifted linguist working for the Oxford English Dictionary, sets Donald’s quest—and his life—on a new and unexpected course. An astonishing archaeological discovery made near Stonehenge lands King Arthur in the headlines, throwing Donald and Julia back into each other’s paths as they follow the elusive clues embedded in an old Welsh battle poem. Their journey through the English and Welsh countryside, from Oxford’s hallowed Bodleian Library to the magical sites of Tintagel and Glastonbury and beyond, will intersect in unforeseen ways with their own troubled lives, and will lead them at last to a deeper understanding of the origins of Arthur.

Sean Pidgeon’s debut novel is at once a suspenseful literary and archaeological treasure hunt and a poignant contemporary love story.
