With her king a captive and her coffers drained, England is left in turmoil during the Crusades. After the death of her father in the Holy Land, Lady Marian of Ravenskeep finds herself alone—and at the mercy of men vying for her lands and her beauty. Thrust into games of political intrigue, the sheltered knight’s daughter soon learns to trust no one . . .
Afforded a hero’s homecoming, Sir Robert of Locksley returns from the Crusades a shattered man. In a country he barely recognizes, one torn apart by treachery and betrayal, he finds in Marian a kindred soul. Their quest for justice will take them into the depths of Sherwood Forest, where the dream of a new England will be born . . .
“Lively storytelling and pacing help make Roberson’s impressively mature first novel an enjoyable, almost creditable recasting of the Robin Hood legend as historical fiction . . . The romance works beautifully, capturing in the tale of Robin and Marian the terrifying bliss of first love. A diverting, delightful book from a most promising talent.” —Publishers Weekly
“An imaginative and riveting novel, impossible to put down.” —Booklist“Robinson expertly evokes the sensations and frustrations of medieval life.” —Kirkus Reviews
