Product Description

Product Description

WINNER 2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Science Fiction & Fantasy.

Morgan le Fay, 6th-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300 miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079, replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings, virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological marvels.

Whatever is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball franchise.

Written as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society, popular culture, politics, baseball...and the human heart.

About the Author

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in the mountains of southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, fish, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied as recently as the midtwentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while yet. Kim has been a published novelist since 1999 (Dawnflight, 1st edition, Sonnet Books, Simon & Schuster) and a student of Arthurian lore and literature for nigh on half a century.

Queen Morgan le Fay has traveled through time and been mistakenly placed in 2079 where she is forced to learn a whole new life. She is able to attain all of her paperwork that legitimizes her thanks to Clarice Centralia, who always seems to show up at the right time.

When the President Malory Hinton asks for Morgan's help as a campaign boss she is able to get things done and soon finds herself as the owner of a baseball team in London and butting heads with Sandy Carter, a look-alike to a former lover. But Morgan finds herself very uneasy around the President's husband, Ambrose Josiah Hinton and doesn't know how long she will have in the current time.

I enjoyed the book but at certain points I found myself a little confused over what was happening and feeling like I missed something. I enjoyed Morgan and thought she was fun although her relationship with Sandy was rocky to say the least.

It really feels like Morgan excelled in the different year and really didn't seem to have many problems at all adjusting as I was expecting much more trouble with the technology and little things but they didn't seem to come up in the book.

Still looking forward to reading another book by the author.

This is the first time reading anything by this author and I was thoroughly enjoyed this great story. We find Queen Morgan racing through the battlefield , in a carriage ,and the king who is her brother in fighting and she rushes to his side to try and save him. with her herbs. As she tells them what to write, Morgan decides to tell a story as she casts a spell to travel back in time to kill Hank before he comes to their time when the king would be safe. What she encounters on her travels was deceit ,love lost love and she learns alot about herself. If you like reading about history and King Arthur when you will enjoy this amazing story. I could go on and tell youmore about this great story but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend you read this great story ,you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x98878d5c) out of 5 stars KIM HARDLEE..HAS ADDED ANOTHER TERRIFFIC BOOK TO THIS SERIES... April 18 2015
By Sue Kay Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR AN HONEST REVIEW AND THIA IS MY HONEST OPINION
In the beginning we find Queen Morgan racing to the battlefield, in a carriage, her brother the King is fighting, she rushes to his side,sending for her herbs to try an save his life. Next she is tells them what to write. Morgan starts to tell a story if she cast a spell to go back in time to kill Hank Morgan because killing him before he comes to their time , the king will be safe. Morgan le Fay, from the 6th-century casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may can stop Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world. She vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can travel back in time to destroy her world.The spell misses by 200 years and 300 miles,sending her to Washington, D.C., 2079, complete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings, virtual-reality television, and other technological marvels. I found myself wondering what she would get into next and laughing at many parts in the book Considering that she is unprepared ,Queen Morgan is quite the character! She finds herself in the 21st century and willing faces the challenges thru the trials and errors of being in a century she doesn't really understand.However, this is where her life starts to take a turn, she becomes the Campaign Boss for the American President Malory Beckham Hinton,later she decides to but a baseball team called London Knights. In order to know what is going on with her club and how to run it day to day ,she is going to have to move. She leaves President Malory with her assistant.In London, Sandy is hired as her GM. And they fall in love, he does something to lose her trust and she fires him, but because she really loves him , she rehires him. The story doesn't ends but it starts to have more twists and turns.Do you remember she is a 6th century Queen accidently in the 21st century? Will Morgan go back to save King Arthur ? Will she stay in her new life? To find out you need to read this amazing story. I recommend this book for all. Especially if you like baseball, history, and touch politics.

HASH(0x98878db0) out of 5 stars I had a pleasant surprise... Nov. 30 2014
By M.C. Simon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am writing this review from the position of the person who did not read Mark Twain’s story and who is not a fan of King Arthur’s epoch. However, I have to admit that time travel is one of my passions.

I had a pleasant surprise finding that the main character had to travel forward in time. Her reason for doing it was also a hook for me.

It was appealing to read about a 6th-century Queen’s time travel in the future. It was amusing to read about her thoughts and feelings in the end of the 21th century, a completely new Era filled with so many technological marvels. I found here an interesting approach of interactions between people living in such different epochs.

I needed some time for the language used to reel me in, but once this happened, it was a nice journey to take. If this somehow happens to you also, be patient. After several pages, you will find yourself immersed in this book and when the end arrives, you will not want to put it down from your hands. You will find many aspects to follow here … romance, politics, business, magic, sports… and much more.

I recommend reading this book especially if you are an Arthurian reader and a sport or politics fanatic. In addition, if you are passionate about time travel, I would recommend this story line concept to you. Seeing the comparison between the lives of the same character in two different worlds, while reading it, a question shadowed me. Will Morgan choose to go back in her original time period, where her brother King Arthur was dying or will she remain in the new time, where so much is happening?

I will not tell you her final choice. You will have to find this out for yourself. Therefore, read it and tell me what you think.

HASH(0x9887a204) out of 5 stars Future Fantasy and Time Travel Era Comparison Nov. 3 2014
By DogsMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Being a fan of all forms of Arthurian literature I was excited to read Kim Headlee's time travel novel in the style of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee. It has been years since I read Twain's novel or even watched the movie versions.
King Arthur's Sister is set in our future and focuses on Morgana, still very much the Queen of mystical arts, although not as dark as in her earlier times. OK, that may be up for debate.
Finding herself in an unfamiliar era, Morgan associates with infuential, powerful, wealthy people.
It is not until the very end of the book that we learn in detail how Morgan came to this particular time.
The last hour of reading this book was my favorite part.
I did not go into this book with any preconceptions. Perhaps I was expecting more of a political story, Morgan aiding Malory Hinton in her aspirations as President for Life. Those sections of the book were exciting.
While interesting, the details of the ball games and owning and managing a champion level baseball team slowed down the reading for me. I appreciated the comparisons between different eras and between running a kingdom and a successful business.

Along with the political and business storylines, included is Morgan's tumultuous romance with her personal assistant "Sandy" who resembles her prior consort, Sir Accolon.
This era's Morgan seemed softer, more open and adaptable.
I was relieved when she fired Sandy (again) rather than give in to his ultimatum.
There is a brief moment in the story where Morgan is actually vulnerable.
If this had not been resolved as quickly as it did, I have no doubt Morgan would have conjured up magical aid. Fortunately her powerful friends came to rescue her. I may have enjoyed that section to be a bit beefier, last longer.
It seemed to resolve too easily without enough consequences.

I want to suggest that at the end of the book you do not stop.
Read the author notes. I enjoyed them very much.
I believe this book has the potential to be an excellent movie and the beginning of a mini series.

I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

What if Mark Twain's story, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, continued? Though I have not read the original classic by Twain, I was eager to read this book because it was an Arthurian tale and I was curious to see how Morgan le Fay would be in the future. I was not too sure what to expect so I did not start reading this book with any set ideas. With an open mind, I was able to have fun reading King Arthur's Sister in Washington's Court.

The plot was very entertaining. I loved the whole idea of Morgan traveling to the future to stop Mark Twain's character from going to her time and destroying her world, but instead she wound up in the late future. I found myself grinning while reading the first few chapters where Morgan awakens in the future at a Renaissance Fair. I couldn't wait to read her reaction when she realized where she was. Next, it was interesting to see how the story turned directions: Morgan helped out on a presidential campaign then she became an owner of a baseball team. To be honest, I was thrown off a bit at the idea of Morgan le Fay being the owner of a sports team since I'm not a follower of sports. However, the things Morgan went through with the team as well as the little romance she had had me wanting to read more. It also had me wondering if Morgan would ever return to her time.

Reading this book gave me an idea of what Mark Twain's book was about. It encouraged me to pick up the classic and see where the inspiration for this book came from. I would like to be able to compare these two books.

Overall, this was an enjoyable read. I liked the quirkiness of the plot and I simply loved Morgan. I was glad to have had the chance to read an Arthurian tale.

HASH(0x9887a6a8) out of 5 stars A fun romp through time Nov. 7 2014
By Christina Weigand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court
Kim Iverson Headlee
Queen Morgan lands in the year 2079 in the United States. She is quickly rushed to Washington D.C. to assist a presidential candidate to win the re-election and govern the country.
After the election is won, Queen Morgan helps the new president, Malory Beckham, to rule the country but is soon lured to London, where she buys a baseball team.
The bulk of the story is about the ups and downs of Morgan’s life as a baseball owner. Throughout the story she is looking for a way to return to her own time so she can reconcile with and save her brother King Arthur, who she left dying on the battlefield.
During her time in the contemporary world she encounters deceit, finds and loses love and learns a lot about herself. If the reader enjoys King Arthur tales and baseball stories this is the book for you. This reader would have preferred to see more of the activities with Malory Beckham and Morgan’s adjustment to living in the modern world as well as her efforts to get back to her own time.
Overall King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court is a fun romp through time, just not necessarily this reader’s cup of tea.
