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.

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.

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.

Washington's This story was the reverse of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Rather than a person from the future journeying back in time, this is Morgan Le Fey traveling forward to 2079. It is an amusing look at how someone from the time of Arthurian legend would view the future. Morgan was bemused at first but caught on quickly to how things were done. She soon owned her on baseball team, had influence on several world leaders, and a romantic entanglement. I enjoyed KIM IVERSON HEADLY and her take on the Twain classic.

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.
