Blurb: Among the first to look at the story of Camelot through Guinevere’s eyes, Woolley sets the traditional tale in the time of its origin, after Britain has shattered into warring fiefdoms. Hampered by neither fantasy nor medieval romance, this young Guinevere is a feisty Celtic tomboy who sees no reason why she must learn to speak Latin, wear dresses, and go south to marry that king. But legends being what they are, the story of Arthur’s rise to power soon intrigues her, and when they finally meet, Guinevere and Arthur form a partnership that has lasted for 1500 years.

This is Arthurian epic at its best—filled with romance, adventure, authentic Dark Ages detail, and wonderfully human people.

Review: This was a very vivid story that threw me full force back into the time of knights and ladies. Totally captivating.

I really got pulled in to this tale, told in first person, and found myself unable to put it down. The detail really added extra umph to an already great story and helped me create brathtaking images to go along with the well written words.

There is no doubt that I will be keeping my eyes peeled for more from this author in the future. I enjoy being swept away in a good story and the sweeping was evident in this one :)
