Guinevere

Guinevere Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shaman New man tells the story of the golden child whose dearest friend is a saint who hears spirits singing; of the gentle-hearted woman who begins to dream of love, glory, and the fierce, proud king who will become her husband; of the passionate beauty whose name will be remembered and hated for centuries.

Sharan Newman portrays Guinevere with all the charm, skill, and erudition that have won her the hearts of readers and the admiration of critics for her Catherine LeVendeur medieval mystery series. In Guinevere, Newman offers a reinterpretation of the Arthurian saga and as memorable as The Mists of Avalon and The Hollow Hills.

Synopsis:

Sharan Newman has created a portrait of what Guinevere might have been like--not a cardboard character who has been both deified and vilified over the centuries, but someone who was as bound by prophecy as Arthur and whose will ultimately was not all her own.

About the Author

Sharan Newman won Romantic Times magazine's Career Achievement Award for Historical Mystery in 1999. She lives in Oregon.
