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
