Mailbox Monday



Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the exciting books that came into their house last week via post. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!


Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, and is currently being hosted by Amy from Passages to the Past for the month of April. 




I received two delightful books for review:



Queen of the Summer Stars: Book Two of the Guinevere Trilogy 

by Persia Woolley

Publish Date: June 1st 2011 
Format: Paperback 512 pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):

"In a country simmering with witchcraft and unholy alliances, Guinevere joins forces with her husband, King Arthur, to gain control of Britain's warring knights. She presides over fabled heroes-including Gawain, Merlin, Tristan and Isolde-and treacherous villains, including Morgan le Fey and Lancelot. Vibrantly human, she reigns as a woman poised to discover the true peril and promise of the human heart. The second novel of this Arthurian trilogy plays out the history and myth of the round table, brought to life through the words of an extraordinary queen."




by Margaret Campbell Barnes
Publish Date: April 1, 2011
Format: Paperback 352pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):

"The moving, tragic story of Charles I, the last absolute monarch of England, during his imprisonment in Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight. Richly drawn and inspired by the New York Times bestselling author's own experience living on the Isle of Wight, this dramatic retelling brings to life the cavalier king whom Cromwell deposed. But even more fascinating than the account of royal hopes and misfortunes is the tale of a charming servant girl who is as romantic and tender in love as she is bold and resourceful in plotting the king's escape."
