Taran has been both Assistant Pig-Keeper and warrior, but his heart is troubled. Who are his parents? Where does he come from? In a quest to learn who he truly is. Taran travels Prydain seeking secrets long buried by time and silence.
Accompanied by his loyal friends, Taran begins his search. Maybe, if his parents are noble as he hopes, Princess Eilonwy with the red-gold hair will think as often and as fondly of Taran as he finds himself thinking of her.
I've read this series once before years ago and was compelled to read it again after one of my book clubs read the first one. I've enjoyed it, but with with overtones of apprehension because I know what's coming in the last book.
