ISBN: 0966037103
A rich and sweeping novel of intrigue and passion, honor and betrayal, Into the Path of Gods is the first installment of the spectacular Macsen's Treasure series. Set in the turbulent twenty-five year period leading to Arthur of Britain's reign, it is the story of Marcus ap Iorwerth, Welsh spy and master of disguise, who seeks to avert the age-old bane of warfare by sabotaging mercenary invaders and creating ways to unite feuding British political rivals. In the course of his work, he discovers his true love, Claerwen, an ethereal woman with the gift of visions who comes to share his dream of a united Celtic Britain, free of barbarians. Together they become ensnared in a dangerous conspiracy involving the priceless sacred symbols of Britain's high kings, known collectively as Macsen's Treasure. Using wits, tenacious courage and just plain audacity, they help clear the path for the rightful high king to take the crown of Britain, and in the process, discover the truth of Macsen's Treasure.

Boudreaux, Aleta
Song of the White Swan
Laughing Owl Pub, 12/97
ISBN: 0965970167
Review by David Carl O’Neal - PaciŞc Coast Press “Ancient gods reigned among the people’s hearts in Brittany, but the dawning of the 16th century and the growth of the Church of Rome threatened the old ways. This classical quest reveals an unlikely heroine, Antoinette Charboneau, and blends deceit with the search for love and truth into a mythical adventure.
Antoinette’s spiritual gifts and closeness to the throne of Brittany give her attainment of faith, plus power and inşuence in European Courts, but suddenly the threats are immediate, personal and deadly. Seeking to aid Brittany and her Queen, she is swept into an unexpected journey that challenges her friendships, family ties and personal faith. Filled with romance, magic, rivalry and exploration, this novel builds toward a precarious future.The Song of the White Swan is a well-crafted story, Şlled with magic, history and adventure. It is a compelling read.

Christianity and Paganism in the Fourth to Eighth Centuries
Yale Univ Pr Nov 1997 272pp
ISBN: 0300071485
The book jacket states: "...pagan practices persisted in the Christian church for hundreds of years after Constantine proclaimed Christianity the one official religion of Rome...the two religious systems were both vital during an interactive period that lasted far longer than historians have previously believed... pagan beliefs were not eclipsed or displaced by Christianity but persisted or were transformed...This fascinating book also includes new material on the Christian persecution of pagans over the centuries...the stubbornness of pagan resistance; the difficulty of satisfying the demands and expectations of new converts; and the degree of assimilation of Christianity to paganism."
