A beautiful synthesis of Robin Hood legends. –Marion Zimmer Bradley
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. . .
