"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"

Reviews

"Woolley brings light to the to this time period and she paints vivid images of what life was like at the time of the 'Celtic Renaissance' when the many Celtic tribes revolted against marauding Anglo-Saxons." - Books by the Willow Tree "Every little detail was so spot on and it was very impressive. You feel as if you are a part of it. " - Books Like Breathing "Persia Woolley delivers in Child of the Northern Spring... it has garnered itself a spot in my permanent collection." - Read All Over Reviews "eeing developments through the eyes of Guinevere... gave the story an entirely different feel, rhythm, and emphasis." - Apprentice-Writer "The world of Arthur and Guinevere was masterfully created." - The Maiden's Court "It is evident from the beginning that Woolley took her time researching the history of the time period as she goes into extraordinarily vivid description. Her characters come to life. " - Rundpinne "Fans of the Arthurian legends will appreciate and love this re-telling." - Debbie's Book Bag "This is quality storytelling that has stood the test of time, and I look forward to seeing the other two volumes in this trilogy back in print." - Historical Novels Review "An enthralling read with fascinating three-dimensional portrayals of Arthurian legendary characters set in a historical accurate Britain. " - Laura's Reviews "Guinevere is bold and strong, a true heroine in every sense of the word. Guinevere truly gets a rework here. Rather than being the wishy-washy fair-headed maiden of the romantic legend, she is a formidable Queen." - Queen of Happy Endings "The writing was sophisticated, the characters stem from legendary stories and there was enough action and romance to keep readers engaged." - Palmer's Picks for Reading

Shelley Anne Batten on
 
The first of a marvellous trilogy. These books were written quite a while ago. I first came across them when my librarian recommended them to me. Quinevere is a young girl/woman in this first book and about to embark on the arranged marriage with Arthur. All the major characters are involved in this retelling of the Arthurian legend and all of them have had a fresh breath of life blown into them by Persia Woolleys extraordinary imagination. If you loved "The Mists Of Avalon" (Marion Zimmer Bradley), then you'll love this. Persia Woolley, however, portrays each character in a unique way.
