Since boyhood, Connor, Prince of Wexford, has dreamt of a mysterious maiden, certain she is his Ediana, his soulmate. As a member of a mystic sect of fairy people who once ruled Atlantis and later reigned in the legendary Avallon, Connor possesses extraordinary magical powers. His aunt helps him make the journey through time to find his Laura.

With all her heart Laura Sullivan yearns for the mystic man she has dreamt of since childhood. Suddenly-after Laura's Aunt Sophie begins chanting strange yet familiar incantations from a journal she has found-he appears in their Boston library.

Connor is astounded to have found his Ediana, but Laura does not believe in magic or dreams and feels her love for Connor is doomed because she must wed another. Connor is desperate to convince her he is real, to woo her and to show her the wonders and magic of love, and yet he must not use his powers. She must come to him on her own, accept him for what he is and accept the truth about herself.

Alas, there are those who would destroy Connor out of fear and jealousy. The lovers must thwart the evil that slowly enshrouds them.

THE SORCERER'S LADY is a warm and touching love story evoking the magic and beauty of a fairy tale. Ms. Dier's wonderful cast of characters (both aunts are delightful) will leave you longing for another glimpse into their lives and more tales from the mystic realm of Avallon.
