Product Description
Here is the tragic tale of the rise and fall of Camelot -

but seen through the eyes of Camelot's women:

The devout Gwenhwyfar, Arthur's Queen;

Vivane, High priestess of Avalon and the Lady of the Lake;

Morgaine, possessor of the sight....

A story:
to light a faded tapestry to show threads of a more brilliant hue, thus drawing the eye and satisfying the heart with unrecognised hidden depths.

The voice of the book is not limited to Morgaine, also represented are Gwenhwyfar, Morgause, Igraine, Vivian and Nimue, all contributing their own often humourous, often heart-rending, maddening and unforgettable accounts of reality in their own thoughts and words. This book forges a feeling of having re-discovered nearly every woman you have ever known and realise you never really forgot....
