Finding Elen: The Quest for Elen of the Ways

From the back cover:

Caroline Wise has been exploring the mysteries of Elen of the Ways and the Green Lady for many years. This latest book 'Finding Elen' gives Caroline the opportunity to share her deep understanding of the myths of the land. Caroline has the amazing gift of being able to convey her personal vision to both pilgrim and artists, bringing Elen, the goddess, into the forefront of our minds. 

Contributors include Andrew Collins, CaitlĂ­n Matthews, Linda Iles, Alex Langstone, Laria Teresa-Harmer, John Merron and several artists all of whom have revealed Elen of the Ways to the world. So who was Elen - Helena; the goddess of many names? In 'Finding Elen' we have several archetypal contenders. But whoever she was, Elen is seen as guardian protectress of Britain.
