Arthur At the Crossing Places
Crossley-Holland's trilogy continues with Arthur leaving Caldicot and his childhood behind and taking up a position as squire to Lord Stephen. Finding his feet in a new environment, he has to negotiate several awkward situations at the manor while making preparations to accompany Lord Stephen on Crusade. He also continues to follow the adventures of King Arthur and his Knights in his 'seeing stone'. Written in bite-sized chapters, the sharpness of the writing is as effective as ever, setting the stage for a gripping conclusion to the trilogy in Arthur: King of the Middle March.
