Abstract:

An absorbing portrait of the Arthurian age.-San Francisco Chronicle 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. Praise for Persia Woolley's Guinevere Trilogy Original ... accurate in detail ... Child of the Northern Spring is rich and sweet.-New York Times Vivid ... dramatic ... once again we are captivated by the magic of the legend that has long fed our appetite for pageantry and romantic adventure.-Washington Post Vividly re-creates sixth-century Britain in the throes of change ... Child of the Northern Spring portrays a sensitive young woman who will appeal to modern readers.-Publishers Weekly Richly textured, evoking the sights and sounds of castle and countryside, the qualities of knight and servant. Highly recommended.-Library Journal.
