Product description


"This exciting sequel to The Forestwife . . . will please fans of Karen Cushman's The Midwife's Apprentice and send them looking for the prequel to this story."--School Library Journal

"Tomlinson peoples Sherwood Forest with ordinary folk . . . who are like you and me. . . . I care about these people and their message of love, hope, and courage."--Karen Cushman, Newbery Medalist and author of The Midwife's Apprentice

"Readers will hope for more news of Magda, with her courage, strength, and skills."--Kirkus Reviews

From the Inside Flap

as just a baby, her mother was murdered, and her father John brought her to live in the woods with the Forestwife. Here she learned to heal sick people and became skillful in archery and fighting. Now Magda wants a life of adventure beyond the forest. When word comes that Lady Matilda and her daughter Isabelle are being held captive by the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, Magda is ready. This is the chance of a lifetime to join forces with her father John, and the mysterious Robin Hood and his band of outlaws. Little does Magda know that this is also a chance to come face to face with the scoundrel who murdered her mother.
