In the two voices of Gawain and Lady Green, this retelling of the Arthurian legend unfolds. Crompton's characters from Merlin's Harp (Donald I. Fine, 1995) take readers back to the time of Camelot, a place where honor and chivalry are as much a part of life as is breathing for Sir Gawain. Other beliefs, even those of one he has come to love, are betrayed. The book is unique in its presentation of Lady Green as a strong female character, and many teens will identify with the choice she made for love. Differences between the status of men and women in the time of King Arthur are cleverly integrated through the voices of the title characters.
