THE CHALICE AND THE BLADEThe odd thing about this story is that there is a Cerridwen and Rhuddlwm who are connected with a Welsh Witchcraft page at: http://www.dynionmwyn.com They knew nothing about The Chalice and the Blade as it was written, but their story parallels the Glenna McReynolds story. They are Druid/Witches and so are the protaganists of the story. They are married. Rhuddlan and Ceridwen are not, but they were lovers. They are members of a Welsh Druid based religion ( Dynion Mwyn/Y Tylwyth Teg) and so are the two characters. I was not only amazed, but also flabergasted at the synchronistic event of Glenna Writing this particular story. You see my name is Cerridwen and I am a member of Y Tylwyth Teg which Glenna wrote about without knowing us. In fact, when I called her she too was dumbstruck at the similarities between her book and the real life religion she writes about. Her book is not only one of the most fascinating historical fantasy books on the market, but in some respects it carries many elements of truth. This comes from the extensive research that Ms. McReynolds undertook before writing this wonderful tale. A must read for all those interested in Druidism and Witchcraft. ....... Cerridwen ab Gawr, High Priestess Y Tylwyth Teg.
