Publisher Comments:

The second thrilling novel in Kevin Crossley-Holland's bestselling Arthur trilogy

Arthur de Caldicot has achieved his dream: He now serves as squire to Lord Stephen of Holt Castle. But this new world opens up fresh visions as well as old concerns. Arthur longs to escape the shadow of his unfeeling father and meet his birth mother. To marry the beautiful Winnie, but maintain his ties with his friend Gatty. And to become a Crusader, with all the questions of might and right involved.

Just as he so brilliantly did in THE SEEING STONE, Kevin Crossley-Holland weaves Arthurian legend with everyday medieval life in the unforgettable story of one hero's coming of age.

Review:

"Holy wars and romantic intrigue adventure combine in Kevin Crossley-Holland's At the Crossing Places, book two in the Arthur Trilogy begun with The Seeing Stone. Here 13-year-old Arthur begins life as squire to Lord Stephen at Holt and aspires to be a Crusader in his own right, and perhaps win the hand of a fair maiden." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Now in paperback--the second epic novel in this bestselling trilogy that weaves Arthurian legend with everyday medieval life in the unforgettable story of one hero's coming of age.
