A powerful Enchanter, Aldebaran, discoverer of the precious Elixir of Eternal Youth, is tired of playing with the lives of men and retires to his beautiful kingdom located on the path between the earth and the moon. There, he passes his time educating his beautiful daughter, Melusine, in the intricate profession of sorcery; his only worry is that she should never experience the misery of the mortal world. Melusine, like most children, is deaf to her father's cautionary words and longs to see life on the mysterious planet at the end of the moon path. One day she disobeys Alderbaran and uses her magic powers to descend to Earth, landing in the peculiar kingdom ruled by the Emperor Eminondas. Unaccustomed to the etiquette and politics of the court, Melusine uses her magic powers to aid her pilgrimage among humans, but what worked well in the kingdom of her father results in some unexpected complications in the earthly empire.--Goodreads.com.

Author Bio for Irwin, Margaret

Margaret Irwin (1889-1967) was an English writer of historical romance novels. Born in London and educated at Oxford, she married artist John Monsell in 1929. At the time her writing, her novels were quite popular, based primarily in the historical period of Tudor and Stuart England. Nominally centred on female heroines, she was much better at portraying dashing male figures. While her character description and development was strong, her description of events of the time were often muddled and weak which may account for the fact that her work has not stood the test of time. (Twentieth-century romance and historical writers)
