When sixteen-year-old Sylvie’s brother becomes sheriff of Woodshire, she feels powerless to stop his abuse of the local commoners—and afraid he’ll turn his cruelty towards her. She runs away to the woods with her best friend, a handsome huntsman, and soon a host of other villagers join them. Together, they form their own community and fight to right the wrongs perpetrated by the king and his men.
Perfect for fans of fairy tale retellings, this gorgeously written take on the Robin Hood tale goes beyond the original's focus on economic justice to explore love, gender, sexual orientation, the healing power of nature, and what it means to be a family.
