When Sebastian of Hawkesmere returns from the Crusades, he becomes a recluse, locking himself away in an enchanted tower and dabbling in alchemy and magic.
When his brother captures a beautiful woman with a satchel full of amazing instruments, Sebastian is enlisted to help discern their purpose and discover where she came from.
Rhoswen of Atlantis is unlike anyone Sebastian has ever known, and the answers he seeks will shatter his beliefs and force him to choose between love and duty.

Interesting story, that those in isolation and away from light, learn to thrive and advance, perhaps because they are not trying to fight the vagaries of weather and greed.
Yes, although fictional, a thought provoking tale.
