Ariadne's Thread is inspired by May Jennings Bennett, a turn-of-the-century society matron with a taste for whiskey, Ouija Boards, and swindling priests. "I am," she maintained, "the pawn of a Divine Mesmer." When a Jesuit priest begins visiting her in jail, May leads him through a maze of new thoughts that leave him less able to go down familiar corridors. . . but wildly, violently, divinely aware. This is a story of stepping out of one's comfort zone and into the labyrinth of your own mind.

"They used to say, or, believe, they used to believe that the Gods were in the stars. Were the stars themselves. And when one fell to earth, it was actually a God coming to live amongst mankind . . . or to meddle with him."

Emerging from the depths of the Wolley trashpile is 12 year-old Jackson Wolley, and the relationship which develops between him and Allegrae is both poignant and painfully funny.
