Queen of Camelot by Nancy McKenzie

I have read many many books about the Arthurian Legend, and this is another one.  This one is written from Guinevere's point of view.  As the book opens, Lancelot comes to Guinevere to tell her that Arthur and Mordred are both dead, and he has had a vision that she should write the story of her life.  So the rest of the book is Guinevere's life story, told in her own words.  It is well written and enjoyable.  I have always liked the legend, which is why I've read so many different versions.  But because I've read so many versions, I was glad when the book was finished.  I think I need to give this story a rest for awhile.  This is my 9th book for the New Author Challenge 2010.  I rate this book 4 out of 5.
