Knight by the Pool/Masson, Sophie/Paper/0733801781/S047-C1
Lay Lines Trilogy, Book 1
Marie de France, the young wife of an elderly Breton lord, finds the course of her life forever changed by an encounter with a mysterious knight in a deep and dangerous forest filled with magic. A year later, newly widowed, and on her way to her ancestral home, Marie comes face to face with another aspect of her destiny in a passionate encounter with the famous Richard the Lionheart. Like Marie, Richard is a poet and troubadour. But he's also the second son of the king of England, Henry Plantagenet, and his wife, Eleanor d'Aquitaine, not to mention betrothed to the king of France's daughter... But something even more dangerous than the political considerations of kings is stalking Marie, and when long shape-shifting shadows from the past reach out to claim her, she must face their terrifying powers... A compelling mix of fantasy, romance and history, 'The Knight by the Pool' is the first book in Sophie Masson's wonderful Lay Lines Trilogy. 'Lady of the Flowers' will come out in August 99 (timed to coincide with WorldCon in Melbourne) and 'King of the Greenwood' will come out in May 2000.
