The legend of King Arthur finds new meaning in this powerful romantic movie, based on the novel by medeival romance writer Elizabeth Chadwick. When Guinevere, Lady of Leonesse, finds herself desperate for protection for both herself and her people from an ex-Knight of the Round Table, she turns to King Arthur to save them all. Guinevere's decision - to marry the king, leads her into danger and intrigue as she begins the wildest journey of her life. When Lancelot saves an unknown lady in the forest, both their hearts become engaged. Lancelot becomes a friend and trusted confidant to the King, and Guinevere becomes Arthur's wife. While fighting to keep their love at bay, war threatens to tear them apart forever. Chadwick's love of re-enactment becomes apparent in this wonderful story of forbidden love. Everything is in such striking detail; the reader can almost smell the stench of burning straw or feel the adrenaline and fear accompanying battle. This book is a must read, though not quite as powerful as many of Chadwick's other novels.
