Review

"Deb Stover has a remarkable way of dealing with sensitive issues in a realistic and compassionate way. Stolen Wishes is a wonderfully heartwarming story about acceptance, friendship, family and the healing power of love. She has taken a truly mismatched group of characters and created a loving and loyal family, and shown that blood is not always the tie that binds families together. A story where family is the central theme, and love is the magic that makes it real. A truly splendid story, and a keeper; I highly recommend this to all those who believe in the power of love. From time travel to fantasy and now to historical romance, Deb Stover weaves a heartwarming tale of love and acceptance that will bring a smile to your lips and a tear to your eye." -- Terrie Figueroa, Romance Communications

From the Author

This book has always been a work of love for me. They all are, but some more than others. Maid Marian and The Lawman comes from my personal experience of raising a loving family with my late husband that includes both our birth and adopted children of varied races and abilities. We have loved all our children equally and unconditionally.

The secondary characters of Robin and Sunshine in this story will touch your heart--at least I hope they will. I have a Sunshine singing right down the hall from me as I type. In fact, this book is dedicated to her. I think you'll know why when you read it.

Happy reading! --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Living deep in the woods of Oklahoma, Mary Goode watches over her brood like a mother hen. Sometimes tiring of their game of Robin Hood, Mary nevertheless puts up with their antics for the sake of her brother Robin and his friends "Little John" and "Friar Tuck." Mary is the only family Robin has left and being what was termed in the 180os as "slow" he needs her more than he sometimes thinks.
Stumbling into their camp which the group has christened, "Sherwood Forest" is U.S. Marshall Shane Latimer. He's on the trail of a group of outlaws who steal from the rich and give to the poor and believe he has found who he's looking for. However, a run-in with a rattlesnake puts his plans on hold. As Mary tenderly and expertly cares for Latimer (who Robin has christened Will Scarlet), an attraction develops between the two. Shane fakes amnesia in his quest to infiltrate the band of outlaws - or at least to find out what antics Robin and his friends are up to. He believes them to be up to no good, but also believes Mary to be innocent of any wrongdoing.
Adding to the appeal of this story is Robin's romance with Little John's sister, Walks with Sunshine, who is also "slow." The author has created these two special characters with a great deal of depth and insight making them very real to the reader.
Deb Stover, whose forte has been her sensual time travels, makes the transition to historical romance in this doozy of a good yarn. Fans will also welcome the appearance of Sam Weathers from her 1996 time-travel, A WILLING SPIRIT. The great storytelling, tight prose, sexual tension, and rich characterization all combine for a very special book which readers will find difficult to put down once started.
Although a departure for Ms. Stover, STOLEN WISHES does not disappoint her legions of fans. Charming, tender, and absolutely fabulous, this is a keeper in every sense of the word.

Stolen Wishes has it all: a good plot, likeable characters, a very bad guy and wonderful messages about healing and tolerance. Mary and Shane are good for each other and with each other. The references to Robin Hood are delightful and gave a fairy tale quality to what, in lesser hands, might have been a hum-drum western. I would have preferred a bit more romantic tension between the two characters, but I liked it too much to quibble. All in all, a wonderfully done tale!

One of my favorite authors is back with a mind-bendingly original re-cast of the Robin Hood myth. Her cast of characters became a part of me as I read, and her matter-of-fact rendition of persons with disabilities was both poignant and realistic. What a grand romance, too! Highly recommended.
