|Plot Summary of The White Raven|
|"Esseilte, an Irish Princess is sent to England to be married to King Marc'h. On the journey she falls in love with Drustan, a harper and warrior, and Marc'h's nephew. To hide her love affair, she sends her cousin Branwen to the wedding bed, but on the wedding night, Marc'h takes his queen to a stone circle to perfom an old pagan rite. Branwen becomes Queen of the spirit world, while Essilte rules as Marc'h's queen.

Jealousy and pain tear them appart, and Essilte's love affair is clearly doomed."
