Laylines Trilogy #2

Lady Of The Flowers


Formats & editions


Book 2 of the Lay Lines Trilogy.

Marie de France, poet and lover of the famed Richard the Lionheart, is determined to free her faithful knight Llew from the spell that has transformed him into a swan. But to do so she must travel from France to St Non's Well in the magical land of Wales.

Frustration mounts as the very heavens themselves seem to conspire against Marie's departure from the court of Richard's father, Henry II, at Anjou. And when at last she embarks for Britain, Marie finds she must interrupt her journey again to pay homage to Richard's brilliant, exiled mother, Eleanor of Aquitaine, at Salisbury.

On reaching Eleanor's court, Marie's strange and vivid dreams of an ethereal lady of the flowers are the first hint of the machinations of the magical Otherworld in Llew's fate. And so begins an extraordinary adventure which will change Marie's life irrevocably.

Carrying on the fine storytelling tradition of The Knight by the Pool, Sophie Masson takes us to another exotic medieval locale in this extraordinary fantasy novel.
