From the author:
"My name is Angelica Harris and this Excalibur and the Holy Grail is my second novel in a trilogy sequence. My first novel, The Quest for Excalibur which is authored under my married name of LoCascio is the story of an American woman, Arianna Lawrence who after dealing with a sick husband and son, she herself falls ill. Her doctor tells Arianna that she must take a vacation to heal from her struggles that life gave her. Arianna and her family go to England, the place of her dreams. It is there that she takes a tour of the ruins of Camelot with a man named Edmund Winters. It is there that at the lake that Arianna unearths Excalibur. Edmund tells Arianna that she must return Excalibur to her rightful owners. This is ludicrous to Arianna after all 'her owners are dead, they are ghosts.' She is wrong. Arianna finds herself back in Camelot in the Sixth Century. It is there that Edmund reveals that he is really Merlin and helps Arianna form a friendship with King Arthur before he dies in battle with his son Modred. You see Arianna and Arthur have sons who are oppositional due to mental illness and problems. One who is thought to be bewitched, MODRED, and the other who suffers from Tourette Syndrome, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) and is also Emotionally Disturbed, JOSEPH Arianna's son Arianna witnesses Arthur's funeral and the ordination of the heir to Excalibur who is Galahad. Galahad makes Arianna promise to return to her family and someday through a secret signal, a return to Camelot when he has need of her.Hence book two. This book is titled Excalibur and the Holy Grail. It is twelve years later and Galahad must leave for the Holy Grail Quest. One problem- his wife is dead and his son Prince John Arthur is too hard to handle for Nimue, Merlin's wife and Catherine, Sir Gawain's wife. These women are getting on in years and hence Galahad decides that it is time to call Arianna back. Through the mysticism of The Lady."
