This is book 2 of Masson's Lay Lines trilogy, featuring heroine Marie de France.

In the first book, she was widowed and then won the love of Richard the Lionhearted.

In The Lady of the Flowers, Marie must travel to far away Wales to release her knight Llew from an enchantment that he may not survive.

Of course, this quest is going to be complicated by the "assistance" of a host of questionable characters - some are genuinely trying to help, others are there to keep her from succeeding. Springing from the Otherworld with magical powers or stepping wholly human into her path, each being must be dealt with in the time that is rapidly running out. No less than the fate of our world rests on Marie's delicate shoulders.

The cast of characters is no less fantastic than in Masson's The Knight by the Pool. With Masson's deft touch, though, all manner of beings seem equally full and realistic. Villains, goddesses, historical figures - all appear plausible and possible. That only increases the tension when the iniquity of their plans is revealed - or trebles the relief when the purity behind their motives is glimpsed.

In such talented hands as Masson's, even the reality of magic and sorcery seems unquestionable. Each action flows so naturally and smoothly from the last, there is no moment of skepticism or doubt, no break in the spell of fascination cast by the book itself. In fact, it is difficult to put The Lady of the Flowers aside long enough to tend to the banalities of real life.

This has been around for a while. I like a bit of fantasy with a bit of history.
