Monday at the Movies

This summer escape series (“White” is for the white rose of the House of York), loosely based on the War of the Roses, is on Amazon and I’m enjoying it.  It incorporates a bit of the Old Religion rather undramatically into the story line.  The queen and her mother are descended from the river Goddess Melusina and they use magic when and as needed.  There’s a lovely scene mid-way through the series where the queen begins to blow on a bowl of water to stir up a wind.  Her mother joins her and then, softly, the princess sitting on her grandmother’s knee.  It’s the way we all would have liked to have learned magic, I think.
