The Child Queen: The Tale of Guinevere and King Arthur by Nancy McKenzie

I read this when it first came out. For as long as I can remember, Ive been a fan of Arthurian tales, but other than Marion Zimmer Bradleys masterpiece The Mists of Avalon, they dont really tell much about the women of Camelot. This is nowhere near the scope of Bradleys book, but it was still enjoyable. The Guinevere portrayed here is young, shy, but courageous and determined. In love with two men, she does her best to hold to what is right, while dealing with the pain and shame of not being able to produce an heir for Arthur.

Over the years, with moves and whatnot, Id lost my copies of both this book, along with a few others from the same time. I just managed to replace them, and reading this gave me a wonderful afternoon to slip back into the creation of Camelot and the world of Arthur, Guinevere, and Lancelot.
