From the Author
Of the manuscript, Publisher's Weekly had only praise: "The storytelling is solid, the research is thorough, the details are spot-on, and the skill is undeniable. . . . As Robin Hood retellings go, it's pretty much a bullseye."
When asked what inspired her dramatic revision, ArceJaeger replied, "When I was younger, Robin Hood was my favorite hero --- he was clever, good-humored, a superb archer, and most of all, human (Superman, I love you, but little girls can't fly). I had no interest in being Maid Marian, because no matter how smart or strong a writer might make her out to be, she was always subordinate to Robin. It occurred to me as I got older that there were no myths that really empowered women. I wanted to change that."
Based on over 300 reviews left by Amazon readers, ArceJaeger has done just that. The book's jacket echoes their sentiments, calling the novel, "Fast-paced and delightfully clever," and promising readers "a thrilling adventure through medieval England that will captivate the imagination and make you believe Robin Hood really was a girl!"
But it is the moral grounding of the book that has pastors and parents alike singing its praises. Deliberately written for readers of all ages to enjoy, ArceJaeger explains, "This novel explores the journey we all must take from adolescence to adulthood, and the need to live honorably in a society where honor is so often seen as a liability. It is about living life the best you can no matter the circumstances, and ultimately, it is about the basic rights and responsibilities of being human." One reader, impressed by the book's convictions, enthused, "Honestly I'd like to elect the author to Congress, but she probably wouldn't go."
