Publisher's Summary

When a British princess falls in love with a Roman officer destined for imperial greatness, their forbidden desire exacts an unexpected price: banishment from Avalon. Journeying outside the enchanted isle, Helena grows from maiden to mother to wisewoman, experiencing both joy---with the birth of her child---and loss, when politics forces her lover to choose between the Empire and her. Then Helena's son, Constantine, becomes Emperor, and her position as Empress-Mother propels her to prominence at a crucial turning point in Western history. Seeking a way to bridge the pagan world of the Goddess and the new Christian Empire, Helena embarks on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to find the truth that transcends both the old religion and the new.

Amazing as always

Priestess of Avalon is an absolutely amazing book encompassing what we've come to expect from Marion Zimmer Bradley and Diana l. Paxson. Historical fiction about the legendary exploits of Julia Helena mother of the Emperor Constantine. This audio book was narrated to perfection by Rosalind Landor as if the story itself isn't riveting enough this narrator makes the story come alive. I would suggest this book to anybody who enjoys fantasy or historical fiction

character voices not well done

What didn’t you like about Rosalyn Landor’s performance?

The attempt at portraying male and child voices was grating to listen to. Couldn't finish listening. The sample listen is the introduction. Not characters.
