Shield of Three Lions is breathtaking and exciting, a panoramic tapestry of a novel set in the Middle Ages, that weaves the sights, the sounds, the smells and the pageantry of a magical age with the story of Alix, an extraordinary young heroine. Resourceful, inventive and irrepressiblt inquisitive, the violently orphaned Alix disguises herself as a boy to seek an audience with King Richard the Lionhearted so that she can regain her plundered estate. More than befriended by the noble and complex Richard the Lionhearted, she is chosen to serve him as a page during the Crusade. The journey to the Holy Land and the war against the Infidel form the backdrop for one of the most unusual love triangles ever chronicled. Pamela Kaufman is a graduate of U. C. L.
