One of these books that always makes me cry...,
This review is from: Queen of Camelot (Paperback)
Nancy Mc Kenzie has succeeded in crafting a beautiful story of Arthur and Camelot as told from the perspective of his Queen. Guinevere, as a young woman, is brought to Camelot to be the wife of a man she has never met. The hero of dozens of stories and songs she has grown up surrounded by is just as his reputation has led her to believe, and all would be well without the meddlings of Guinevere's bitter cousin Elaine, who had hoped to marry Arthur herself. A story of love, lust, honour and betrayal, it is incredibly re readable and beautifully sad. Told from a woman's perspective it features less of the famous and brutal battles of Arthurian legend, and more of life in Camelot; of the characters and relationships of Guinevere, Arthur, Lancelot, Morgause and Mordred as Guinevere struggles to procure an heir for the High King and come to terms with the dark secrets of her husband's past.
