In a far-off time, in a far-off place, there was Thistledew, home to a number of farmers, their beloved goats, and one Hero (retired.) Rosalind finds herself forced to undertake a quest for a fantastic treasure, said to be lost in the heart of a vanished kingdom. Accompanied by Francis, her unlikely and inexperienced squire, Rosalind sets off into the wilds, far from the comfort and familiarity of Thistledew, and deeper into peril at every turn. Will they survive the mortal dangers that lurk in wood and valley, and worse yet, can they withstand the horrors of bad theatre, shady grog, and gnome-owners associations?

Charming, whimsical and quirky are just a few words that accurately describe "One Last Quest." The story brings to mind classic tales like King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table and their quest for the Holy Grail, albeit the Monty Python version. While the setting is rather medieval in nature, the use of modern-day business vernacular adds to the wit and humor. This adventure will appeal to kids of all ages. A fun bedtime story for the little ones, an amusing journey for the tween set, and a healthy dose of sarcasm for all you adult kids out there. For anyone who wants to read something unique and original, look no further than "One Last Quest."
