The Mists of Avalon : In this huge, enthralling novel, the legend of King Arthur is for the first time told through the lives, the visions, and the perceptions of the women central to it. There is Morgaine, sworn to keep the old goddess religion alive, even if it means fighting a deadly battle against her beloved brother Arthur. And the devout Gwynhefar, pledged to Arthur and God but inextricably drawn to the knight who will bring her only unfulfilled dreams. As Morgaine and Gwynhefar struggle for control over Arthur and the fate of his kingdom, the Isle of Avalon slips further into the impenetrable mists of memory, until the conflict between old and new claims its most famous victim.
