76 1415 Bradley, Marion Zimmer Lady of Avalon
Hardcover Viking: New York; 1997; First US Edition Near Fine in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
460 pages; Book looks unread, no remainder mark ; dust wrapper, not price cut, slightly rubbed and edgeworn. ; This novel is the link between the author's The Forest House and the wonderful Mists of Avalon. 'This novel spans the creation of Avalon itself and foreshadows the birth of the legendary King Arthur. Here, we meet three remarkable holy women who steer the fortunes of Roman Britain as they struggle with their own destinies. Caillean retreats to the island of Avalon with a small band of priestesses. There she establishes a sisterhood to serve the Great Goddess, raises the heir to the mystic royal line, and veils Avalon from a hostile world in its everlasting mists. The astute Dierna guides Avalon through treacherous political waters by marrying a young priestess to a Roman general ... only to discover that love - especially her own - cannot be so easily controlled. Ana gives birth to a baby girl who will be the mother of the great King to come. But it is her beautiful and feisty oldest daughter, Viviane, who is destined for true greatness - as the famed Lady of the Lake and guardian of the Grail.'

A Fine Romance: Falling in Love with the English Countryside, BRANCH, Susan
78 7377 BRANCH, Susan A Fine Romance: Falling in Love with the English Countryside
Hardcover Spring Street Publishing: MA; 2013; First Edition; First Printing 260 pages Color Illustrations: Near Fine in Near Fine dust wrapper 
A lovely copy of a delightful book with an attached red ribbon page marker. Spine ends faintly bumped, one corner very lightly bumped. Unclipped dustwrapper faintly edgeworn.; The author presents a lovingly written (using a font made from her own printing) and illustrated account of her two months exploring the English countryside with the love of her life. "The first time I met my darling Joe we discovered we both had the same dream -- of taking a voyage to England on an ocean liner. To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we did just that, crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Mary II and spending two months wandering the English countryside. I kept a diary of the journey, and when we returned home to Martha's Vineyard, I put it all together in this hand-written book.

A fine Romance begins with the story of how Joe and I found each other and fell in love. Then we're off -- on a quest for serendipity and discovery. Join us as we walk ancient footpaths over hill & dale, along winding hedgerows to castles, cottages, romantic gardens, tearooms, antique stores and pubs. We'll take you through historic homes such as Jane Austen's house and Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm; from Kent to the Yorkshire Dales to the Cotswolds and more. You'll find recipes, maps, and travel tips."; " Each page is a piece of art -- filled with paintings, pictures, and her handwritten and unique thoughts about everything from pubs to Beatrix Potters Hill Top Farm. It is both whimsical and a visual tour de force of art and words." HIghly recommended. Published @ $26.95

Special attention is paid to the huge role played by women, the young and old, and those who came from other countries and continents to offer their help. Also considered are the steps that were taken to keep up morale, and the book ends with a look at the changes that accompanied the end of the war.' Recommended.; Published @ £16.99.
