       Additional Information  
      Uther Pendragon invades Cornwall, kills Duke Gorlois and, with Merlin’s help, shapeshifts to lie with Gorlois’s wife Ygerne at the nunnery of Tintagel. Gorlois’s youngest daughter, Morgan, is outside the door when Arthur is conceived. She is torn between hatred for what has been done to her and love for her baby brother. Her story is told by her nurse Gwennol, a wise woman of the Old Religion.

    Not the first book, but my first novel for adults.
