Who will champion the poor against injustice and cruelty?
When fifteen year old Mary flees into the forest to avoid a fearsome marriage arranged by her uncle, she little knows what challenges lie in store for her as the wise and magical Green Lady of the Woods.
In this riveting and action-packed saga, Theresa Tomlinson breathes new life into the story of Robin Hood by focusing attention on the women who live with the outlaws: women who will pull a bowstring and stand up against the cruel laws of Medieval England.Biographie de l'auteur :
Theresa Tomlinson and her husband live in North Yorkshire. Over the years Theresa has acquired an outstanding reputation for her historical novels. Shortlisted twice for the Carnegie Medal and for the Sheffield Children's Book Award, she takes a keen interest in the north-east coast of England.
Recent visits to Turkey have fuelled her enthusiasm for the ancient mythology of that part of the world. Her scrupulous research has resulted in two epic stories in which classic tale and imaginative re-enactment make a stunning impact.
