The historical realism of Bernard Cornwell and the mesmerizing atmosphere of Marion Zimmer Bradley: The Circle of Ceridwen.
Young women with courage. Swords with names. Vikings with tattoos. Warfare. Passion. Survival. Sheep. And Other Good Things…It is the year 871, when England was Angle-Land. Of seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, five have fallen to the invading Vikings. No trait is more valued than loyalty, and no possession more precious than one’s steel. Across this war-torn landscape travels fifteen year old Ceridwen, now thrust into the lives of the conquerors.Lost in the frozen woods, Ceridwen is discovered by the warriors accompanying young Ælfwyn, daughter of a Saxon lord, sold against her will in marriage as part of a peace treaty with a marauding Viking war chief. Their destination is the captured fortress of Four Stones, a ruin holding glittering treasure. There Ælfwyn must keep her vow and wed Yrling – and Ceridwen must do all she can to support her new friend in the rebuilding of the ravaged village and great hall.But living with the enemy affords Ceridwen unusual freedoms – and unlooked-for conflicts. Amongst them she explores again her own heathen past, and learns to judge each man on his own merits.

But the threat of full-scale war escalates, and a midnight party of furtive Danes delivers someone to Four Stones who destroys the girls’ hopes of peace and contentment. Now Ceridwen must summon all her courage – a courage which will be sorely tested as she defies both Saxon and Dane and undertakes an extraordinary adventure to save a man she has never met.The first book of The Circle of Ceridwen Trilogy, the historical adventure saga enjoyed by thousands of readers in over 125 nations.

It is the fear of separation from everything she loves that brings Allison Bannister to the beach. She stops on the steps that lead down to the ocean. She is alone. The sun is setting behind her; the tide is rushing in, and dark water is licking at the bottom step. Off to the north, the lights of Charleston shine into the evening sky. To the south, a star twinkles as darkness descends on the barrier islands. Light and dark; good and evil. Reconciliation is not in the cards.
Allison shivers. How easy it would be to walk out into the ocean. Her winter clothes would take on water and weigh her down. When she went under, her body would turn cold, her lungs would fill with water, and all of her troubles would end.
It all started with an invitation to Michael’s high school reunion.
“Reunions are fun!” Allison tells her husband, Michael, when the invitation to his thirtieth reunion arrives in the mail. “You see old friends, talk about old times . . .”
“Talk to a bunch of fat, gray-haired people who I haven’t seen in thirty years . . . A blast.” Michael shakes his head, “Besides,” he adds, “strange things happen at reunions.”
In spite of his reluctance, Allison surprises him with tickets.
At the reunion, Michael does see his old friends. They do talk about old times. They watch a video, “Turn Back the Clock” – high school, 1979. As she meets his friends, listens to their stories, and watches the video, Allison discovers a Michael she does not know, a boy who was so very different from the “staid, serious attorney” to whom she is married.
Michael does have a blast. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful,” he asks later in the evening, “if you could crawl through a worm hole and find yourself in high school, again?”
Over the next few weeks, Allison attempts to cope with the strange things that happen as Michael “crawls though the worm hole,” and morphs back into the person he was thirty years earlier. She rolls her eyes when he plays practical jokes. She shakes her head when he trains to run a marathon. Where is the man I married?
Michael’s desire to return to his youth sets in motion events which disrupt their lives and tear the couple apart. Michael spends long hours in his new art studio, alone. Allison feels rejected and begins to build a life of her own, a life that does not require Michael. Before long, Michael and Allison, a couple who seldom spent time apart, rarely spend time together. They both feel neglected, and each blames the other. A long separation, the unexpected appearance of Michael’s college girl friend, an unplanned rendezvous, and a charge of adultery threaten to end their marriage forever – and Allison finds herself alone on the beach.
The Reunion is a tale about how seemingly insignificant events can lead to a marriage on the brink, about the danger of staying silent when problems arise, and, above all, about the journey a couple in love takes as they attempt to obtain forgiveness, to avoid divorce, and to find themselves again.
Includes discussion questions for reading groups.
