Preview of The Forestwife Summary:

Tomlinson's The Forestwife is a compelling look at the Robin Hood legend and Robin Hood's England as told from Maid Marian's perspective. As such, The Forestwife is the female-centered quest narrative of Maid Marian (Mary de Holt); it is a story in which Mary breaks free of patriarchal constructs and rejects her arranged marriage, thereby discovering her innate heroism and self-definition. The Forestwife is a composite of the adventures of the Robin Hood tales and the harshness of medieval reality as well as a treatment of the humanity of the characters living in those times. It is a story of intrigue, of tragedy, of romance, and of much wisdom.
