About the Book

When a little girl’s vigil at her father’s bedside is interrupted by a knock on the door. Little does Marianne realise that she is about to embark on a journey that will change her life forever. The visitor, an old gypsy woman with mystical talents, discusses her father’s condition while sharing Marianne’s lunch.  For her generosity, Marianne is transported to a world of myth and magic.  Where she hears of an ancient relic, which could bring about her father’s recovery.  Marianne seeks the advice of a friend, Mr Bumble, who accompanies the little girl in search of the fabled ‘Isle of Avalon’ and the ‘Veil of Truth’.
