With his band of Merry Men, Robin Hood gives back to the poor and Marian gets a job in the castle to find where the treasures are stored. She is determined to get revenge on those who have done her and others such wrongs. It's really different to see the whole tale unfold from the perspective of Maid Marian instead of Robin Hood. It's a blend of historical tale, action adventure, romance and spirituality.
Write Review Add to favorites. Book Information Reading Level. The Champion. An irresistible reimagining of the Robin Hood legend, Maid Marian brings to life the rollicking--and romantic--world of the Middle Ages. An orphan and heiress to a large country estate, Marian Fitzwater is wed at the age of five to an equally young nobleman, Lord Hugh of Sencaster, a union that joins her inheritance to his, vastly enriching his family. But when she is seventeen, Lord Hugh, whom she hasn't seen in years, dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving her alone again--a widow who has never been a bride.
Like all unmarried young ladies of fortune, she is made a ward of Richard the Lionheart, England's warrior king. With King Richard away on Crusade, Marian's fate lies in the hands of his mother, the formidable Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, who will arrange her second marriage.

Queen Eleanor believes her to be dead, allowing Marian to begin a new life with Robin Hood's outlaws, who pledge to help her regain her fortune and expose the treachery of her enemies. She and her husband served with the Peace Corps in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa, for two years, where she began writing this novel in longhand, by lamplight. She lives near Seattle with her husband and three cats.
