Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend

Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend - Cheryl Carpinello How did the main character change during the novel? Guinevere is enjoying life and then she learns that she is engaged to be married at 13 and she runs away. She couldn't bear the thought of being married to anyone at age and was initially angry with King Arthur. As she sees the situation someone else's perspective, she definitely grows up.

What was the book's central question, and how was it answered? Most importantly this book was focused on lessons that Guinevere learns. She also learns not to judge. I also think the book is about freedom.

Did you learn something new from the book? Yes. I have always liked Arthur and Merlin so this was an interesting angle as to how this author interprets and shares the legend. I also loved her additional discussion questions and ideas at the end of the book. Came in very handy for us at the book club.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
