Lady Elaine: The Journey to Camelot

A retelling of the Arthurian legend from the perspective of Queen Guinevere’s fictitious younger sister, 10-year-old Lady Elaine, who would rather be climbing trees or riding her horse than learning how to be a lady. When Guinevere leaves for Camelot to marry King Arthur, Elaine is forced to come along as her lady-in-waiting. But an attack by bandits and an unexpected encounter make the journey to Camelot more exciting than Elaine anticipated. Maybe Camelot will hold more surprises than she realizes. The first volume in a planned series about Lady Elaine. This book would appeal to readers of American Girl stories, adventure stories, and those reading middle reader chapter books.
