Waiting on Wednesday (9) Sherwood

Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW! 

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Robin of Locksley is dead. 

When news comes that he's fallen in battle at the King's side in the Holy Land, Maid Marian doesn’t know how she’ll go on. Betrothed to Robin, she was free to be herself, to flout the stifling rules of traditional society and share an equal voice with her beloved when it came to caring for the people of her land.

Now Marian is alone, with no voice of her own. The people of Locksley, persecuted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, are doomed to live in poverty or else face death by hanging. The dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sherriff’s right hand, wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley, and Marian’s fiancĂ©. Society demands that she accept her fate, and watch helplessly as her people starve.

When Marian dons Robin's green cloak, and takes up his sword and bow, she never intended that anyone should mistake her for Robin, returned from the Holy Land as a vigilante. She never intended that the masked, cloaked figure she created should stand as a beacon of hope and justice to peasant and noble alike. She never intended to become a legend.

But all of Nottingham is crying out for a savior. So Marian must choose to make her own fate and become her own hero...

Robin Hood. 

Why am I waiting?

The real question is how can you not be waiting?  Marian taking up the helm for Robin.  Robin being dead.  Why aren't you dying for this one to hit your hands? Growing up one of the best love songs of all times comes from a Robin Hood movie- thus began my own love affair with all things Robin.


  1. Nice pick! Seeing this one around a lot! I was kind of somewhere in the middle when it came to enjoying this one. But I equate that to knowing very little about Robin Hood in general! I hope you will positively love it though!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. THIS IS THE KIND OF STORY I'M HERE FOR. I love the story of Robin Hood (especially the Men in Tights version) so this book sounds awesome!
