Winner Description: 
by Elizabeth Marie Pope, and published by Houghton
Winner Blurb: 

Historical novels take many forms.  The Perilous Gard is a romantic, intense story that involves the reader in ancient Druidic rites and Faerie lore while portraying historical events surrounding Mary Tudor and her cousin Elizabeth.  Myth and reality are merged in a narrative that makes use of ballad, superstition, and folklore, but never loses touch with the real world of Tudor, England.  The author has shown creative and imaginative skill in developing the complex plot and brining it to a satisfying climax, using beautifully descriptive words to heighten the emotional impact.
