"Once again we are captivated by the magic of the legend that has long fed our appetite for pageantry and romantic adventure." -Washington Post In a country still reeling from the collapse of the Roman Empire, the young King Arthur and his wife Guinevere struggle to keep the barbarians at bay even as they establish the Fellowship of the Round Table. The spirited and outspoken Guinevere skillfully combats an accusation of planning to poison Arthur in a country simmering with unrest and scandal. But Guinevere's greatest battles are dangers Arthur cannot see-ones she'll have to fight on her own. And all the while, she must reconcile her thirst for freedom with her duties as queen, and her growing love for Lancelot with her loyalty to her husband. Vibrantly human and touchingly real, Guinevere reigns as a woman poised to discover the true peril and promise of the human heart. Praise for Persia Woolley's Guinevere Trilogy "In Queen of the Summer Stars, Woolley employs the same sensitive revelation of character and attention to cultural detail that made Child of the Northern Spring such an enchantment." -San Francisco Chronicle "Richly textured, evoking the sights and sounds of castle and countryside, the qualities of knight and servant. Highly recommended." -Library Journal "A marvelous sense of daily life...the details of tribal differences among Briton, Saxon, and Pict, as well as the uneasy mixture of pagan and Christian ritual and belief. Enjoyable for all fans of Arthurian romance." -Booklist "Persia Woolley is a born storyteller. Her love and enthusiasm for Guinevere and her times shimmers from every page." -Parke Godwin, author of Beloved Exile and The First Rainbow

Reviews

A must read for the history and fantasy buff. The characters in the story are different then other versions I have heard. I was excited to see this new version and really loved reading it. Fans of the Arthurian legends will love this one! True to Arthurian legend and to historical medieval life. 5/5. A wonderful read full of history, romance and myth of the round table. A fast-paced and thrilling adventure... Masterfully crafted. A wonderful story of Guinevere, who deserved to be a legend herself. Woolley's writing style flows easily from page to page... A wonderful author, bringing the legend alive to me in a way no other book on the subject has before. The characters and places are depicted so vividly I was pulled in and didn't ever want to leave them. I've always been in love with the stories of King Arthur to begin with and I love seeing them portrayed as real people. I especially love seeing Gwen live and love and make real choices. "Ms. Chadwick brings Eleanor (Alienor) alive in The Summer Queen... The power of historical fiction, when done well, is that it allows an author to create a personality and offer possible explanations for the events for the past. Ms. Chadwick did this well." - Luxury Reading, 4 stars "Quite simply, the best version of the Arthurian legend that I have read.

The second book of a marvellous trilogy. Guinevere is in her prime as high Queen and she is portrayed as quite an extraordinary woman. I cnnot recomend these books enough. I have read the whole trilogy about 3 times and each time I have found something new to love. Persia Woolley is a superb writer who manages to open Guinever's soul in beautiful pages that are a joy to read.
