Overview

Where Legend and History Collide,
One Young Woman Will Fight for the Innocent

Born a baron's daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is now an enemy of the throne after her father's failed assassination attempt upon the king. Bold and uniquely skilled, she is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village—a group that becomes known as "The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest." Merry finds her charge more difficult as their growing notoriety brings increasing trouble their way.

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, he's forced to reexamine everything he's known.

"Sleiman launches an action-packed, historical series of adventure and romance, starring a strong, intelligent female Robin Hood who lives up to the famous outlaw's reputation. This fun read makes a great adult-YA crossover for Robin Hood fans who enjoy a twist to a classic tale." -Library Journal, starred review

After King John's men massacre all the other adults in her village, including her entire family, Lady Merry Ellison escapes into the forest, taking the orphaned children with her. Living on what they can find and stealing what else they need, including a shipment of gold meant for the king, Lady Merry and her little band become hunted enemies. Timothy Grey, the ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, wishes for a title of his own. When he spots the fugitives in the forest, he decides this is his chance. But when he meets the group's lovely and fearless leader, sparks fly between the two, and Timothy must decide which is more important, love or recognition. VERDICT Sleiman (Love in Three-Quarter Time) launches an action-packed, historical series of adventure and romance, starring a strong, intelligent female Robin Hood who lives up to the famous outlaw's reputation. This fun read makes a great adult-YA crossover for Robin Hood fans who enjoy a twist to a classic tale.
