I have always loved the story of Robin Hood, so I was thrilled to find a new look into the life of Robin Hood through the perspective of his daughter! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I recommend it to anyone over the age of 10 who loves adventure stories.

This is a fun girls adventure story. Rosemary is the daughter of Robin Hood, and, after finding herself alone, decides to go to Sherwood Forest and find him, encountering challenges and adventures along the way. I am glad I have discovered this author and I will happily keep reading her fun books with strong, smart heroines.
