Torn between her father's Catholicism and her mother's Pagan beliefs, Eva finally chooses Paganism. She accepts the name of Arethusa but learns too late that her life will mirror the Greek nymph's tragic fate. When they sail to the Azores Islands, her mother tells her that her destiny rests with Diogo, the shipowner's son. But Eva sees a vision of another . . .
When the ship founders off the Azores, Tristan, a young Azorean, saves her. Destined to be with Diogo yet aching for Tristan's forbidden love, Eva must somehow choose between them, or fate will soon choose for her.
Artemis Rising is a beautiful, seamless blend of two mythologies: the Arthurian legend of Tristan and Isolde, and the ancient Greek myth of Alpheus and Arethusa. It is a story filled with young romance, tragedy, forgiveness and attempts at redemption.
