Young Terrance never expected
much adventure in his life. He had been left at a hermitage after
his mother died. Trevisant, the hermit, was an interesting character.
He had the ability to see into the future but he couldn't remember the
past. When a stranger named Gawain arrives in the woods, Trevisant
tells Terrance that he must go and become squire to Gawain. Terrance
doesn't want to leave but knows better than to disobey the hermit.
Gawain and Terrance set off to join King Arthur's court. Neither
knows what adventures await them. There are duels with other knights
and encounters with hags and faeries. Join Terrance as he shares
The Squire's Tale.
This story is set in the time
of King Arthur. Terrance, an orphan, has been raised by a great magician,
not knowing who his parents are. When Gawain shows up on his way
to Camelot to become a knight, Terrace goes as his squire. They meet
King Arthur, who knights Gawain, and then set out on a series of quests.
In their last adventure they break a spell cast by Gawain's mother which
is killing Arthur. It is then that we learn that Terrace is much
more than he appears. (Jeannie Bellavance email@example.com.
