Paxson dives into history to bring us the original story of King Lear that Shakespeare adapted into his famous play.
Cridilla, third daughter of king Leir of ancient Britain, loves her father and desperately wants his approval. She grows up wild and independent in a brutal world, learning both the arts of war and the mysticism of her mother's native people. But as Leir grows old, will she be able to save him from himself and the rest of his family? And if she can, what will be the cost?
