On a trip to England, a history professor falls in love with an enchanting woman. They travel back in time, meeting all the legendary characters he has idolized along the way.


College professor ROBERT IRWIN decides to wrap up his visit to the historic places of England by spending the night outside Stonehenge. The next morning he meets the ethereal young beauty NINIANE “ANNE” MELLERS who instantly evokes figures from mythology in Robert’s mind. Reality and fantasy become one, and they quickly become lovers. As they travel throughout the countryside, Robert and Anne soon find themselves crossing paths with all the great English heroes, myths, and legends from Robin Hood to Merlin. In his trademark style the master of fantasy, novelist Robert Nathan, weaves a tale of enchantment and fantasy, filtered through the universal experience of love.

“The familiar Nathan magic is at work once again in this gossamer tale… A line from the book speaks of another novelist who created his characters out of fog and rain and flowering bushes… and love and memory. True also of the creator of this gentle, poetic story which has the sentimental appeal of an old ballad. Highly recommended.”
