Morgana has spent years in an orphanage in Pons Aelius, but at 18, she must leave her temporary home and head for the convent where she plans to spend the rest of her days.
An old woman who lives in the attic chooses Morgana as her student and begins the task of teaching her to read every day at noon. One day, the old woman gives Morgana a new book and that book will change her life forever.
Suddenly finding herself on the run from the religious zealots, she takes her horse and travels across the great country in search of a place she only knows by name: Avalon.
Will Morgana find this mythical place, and will she finally find a home there?
Or will the darkness sleeping within her rise as she faces forces that threaten to end her very life?
