Inheritance: Who Do You Think You Are? Ever wondered about your own family origins? How far back can you go? Josh MaCMaddock is about to discover a startling connection to a Celtic past he never knew about. Josh MacMaddock is a young Marketing Executive from New York. His life changes dramatically after he is caught up in an apparent drug related shoot-out and witnesses the murder of his girlfriend. He is unconvinced these events are random and experiences an overwhelming sense of unease. These tragic incidents coincide with the startling news he has inherited a valuable estate in Anglesey, the historic centre of Druidic learning in ancient Britain. As his Celtic lineage unfolds his part in the historic mission of an ancient order is revealed and so begins a terrifying journey into the past lives and forgotten enemies. “The letter that was to change my life was in a cream envelope: its British origin divulged by a couple of garish Royal Mail postage stamps only dignified by the regal head of Queen Elizabeth II. Who could be writing to me from Britain. A sense of foreboding washed over me; my stomach knotted in response. I couldn’t put my finger on it but I could feel the stirring of something dark in the deep recesses of my memory.” “The old religions with their sublime and ridiculous, their friendly and fiendish symbols did not drop from the blue, but were born of this human soul that dwells in us at this moment. All those things, their primal forms, live on in us and may at any time burst in upon us with annihilating force…………….” Carl Jung. Founder of Analytical Psychology (1875-1961)
