As the Roman Empire begins to crumble the love between Elen and Magnus links the sophisticated Celtic culture, with its esoteric rites and rituals with the pragmatic military culture of Rome now imposing Christianity on the known world.
Reviews of Wendy Robertson's novels
'A terrific read. A world on the cusp of change and we experience it intimately.' Historical Novels Review.
'A powerful writer.' Mail on Sunday.
'Wonderful...Robertson deftly intertwines two time periods, slowly absorbing one into the other through the remarkably likeable protagonist.' Booklist USA.
'A great storyteller... she weaves another tale with ideas that still resonate when the story's over.' Northern Echo.
'Wendy Robertson is a rare breed - a writer with an exquisite gift for creating vivid, relatable characters.' Scottish Daily Record.
Note: ' In The Pathfinder I have taken the available material and archeological history of late fourth century Britain and addressed the powerful pre-Arthurian myths of Macsen Wledig and the British princess Elen. My intention is to weave a story that has hope, truth and justice at its heart.'

About the Author
My mother wrought unexpected magic when she somehow managed to get me into college so I could qualify as a teacher. She still urged me on and supported me when - by then married with two children - later I obtained a Master's Degree in Education and began to work at a teacher training college.
So it seems storytelling and writing and teaching have gone hand in hand throughout my life. Even when, having had several novels published, I moved to full-time writing, part of my professional life has been teaching at conferences as well as tutoring and mentoring. This has evolved into founding Room To Write with my writing colleagues Avril Joy and Gillian Wales - a small organisation promoting ideas of independent publishing as a way forward for writers.'
