The Road To Paradise., Roberts,  Keith

Kerosina: Worcester Park. 1988.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Contemporary mystery novel with fantasy elements. From the library of the author, with a short letter of provenance laid in from the Executor of his estate.

''the theme of the primitive heroine comes sharply into focus in Gráinne (1987), which draws upon the Celtic legend of the Goddess and explores her power in the modern age through the form of a mysterious young girl. These novels form the author's main corpus of fantastic fiction. They have affinities with the work of Robert Holdstock and Richard Cowper in the exploration of mythic figures. They find a natural conclusion in THE ROAD TO PARADISE (1988), a contemporary timeslip novel where the weight of Britain's past begins to haunt the heroine'' (Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
