|Plot Summary of In Pursuit of the Green Lion|
|"This sequel to "A Vision of Light" moves the story into the realm of fantasy. It picks up where "A Vision of Light" left off. Margret of Ashbury is forced to marry the wealthy Gregory de Villiers (formerly brother Gregory). Although she is repelled by his father and brother, Margret and Gregory grow to love one another. The hundred years war is now taking place, and Gregory is captured and taken to a dungeon. When Margret learns of this, she sets off on a quest to help Gregory, armed with a magical amulet, two ghostly companions, and a mysterious alchemist. The alchemist is looking for the green lion, a mythical statue that will turn base metals into gold, and grant eternal life. His pursuit of this puts all of the characters in danger."
