Seeing Stone   by Kevin Crossley-Holland (Arthur Trilogy), Y Fiction Crossley-Holland
In late twelfth-century England, a thirteen-year-old boy named Arthur recounts how Merlin gives him a magical seeing stone which shows him images of the legendary King Arthur, the events of whose life seem to have many parallels to his own. The year is 1199 and on the borders of England and Wales young Arthur de Caldicot waits impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his father's friend Merlin gives Arthur a shining black stone, and in it he starts to see stories of his namesake, King Arthur. The Seeing Stone is a pageant of the past, crowded with characters, including Arthur's jealous older brother; the forthright village girl, Gatty; Tanwen, the serving girl; and Lady Alice, who entrusts Arthur with a terrible secret. Their individual dramas create an eye-opening picture of life in a medieval manor. But they are shot through with the legends of King Arthur in a narrative that builds to a thrilling and mysterious climax as the stories of the two Arthurs intertwine.
