Marian

Ella Lyons

eBook - 2016

Life changes for Marian Banner when she leaves the countryside for the big city of Nottingham with her father, Sir Erik the Fortunate, and Marian doesn't think it's an improvement. She must trade braids and leggings for jewelry and dresses, and hunting and wandering the woods for dancing and a life at court. But into Marian's dull new world comes someone exciting-a girl named Robin Hood who is as courageous and dedicated as she is small. Robin is determined to become a knight, and... she won't let her gender stand in her way. The two girls quickly become inseparable. Their friendship changes as time passes and becomes something much more serious-and more magical. When Marian's father is killed and the king takes an interest in her, she'll need Robin to prove she's the hero she always wanted to be.
