"A horse broke through beside her, nearly knocking the mare over. At first Marian thought the horse unmounted, possibly Gisbourne’s, running from the boar, because she saw no rider—and then she did see him and realized he was clad in the colors of the forest, nearly invisible, almost indistinguishable against the emerald, olive, and jade. It was the shock of white-blond hair that betrayed his identity, and the grimness of his features."
🌿The Lady of the Forest is one of my many finds from the library book sale last week, and as a huge Robin Hood fan, I'm so excited to read this. The cover art is stunning, and I'm ready to sink my teeth into a sultry reimagining of the tale of Robin Hood, seen largely from the perspective of a strong, defiant Lady Marian. Something tells me I'm going to need the sequel, Lady of Sherwood, when I'm through. 🌿 What's your favorite interpretation of the legend of Robin Hood, book or film? I love the charming Disney version (my first crush was a fox😂), Errol Flynn's dashing Robin Hood, the hilarious Men in Tights.. I can't choose!! I'll never forget when I was wee kid, mom was sick and asked my uncle to rent Robin Hood for us, meaning of course the Disney version. Oh no, he brought the newly released Kevin Costner version, and I was appalled and entranced by the violence. By the time my mom came into the kitchen for medicine, we were halfway through and had already seen plenty of adult content. 😂
