Perennial Favorite –  This is the book I gift almost every year. It’s the book I read over and over. It’s the book I want the world to read. King Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot, and a perfect, tragic exploration of humanity.

— Kelly

The novel is made up of five parts: The Sword in the Stone, The Witch in the Wood, The Ill-Made Knight, The Candle in the Wind and The Book of Merlyn. Merlyn instructs the Wart (Arthur) and his brother Sir Kay in the ways of the world. One of them will need it the King has died leaving no heir, and a rightful one must be found by pulling a sword from an anvil resting on a stone. In the second and third parts of the novel, Arthur has become King and the kingdom is threatened from the north.
