After Rowans mother is brutally killed by the local villagers, Rowan sets out on her own. After a moment of indecision, she decides to seek the legendary outlaw Robin Hood, a man she believes to be her own father. Along the way she meets a shy bard, a runaway princess, and makes enemies of a dangerous solider. Filled with great characters, and a plot full of twists and turns, this is a great addition to the Robin Hood Story.

After Rosemary Hood finds her mother has died unexpectedly, she sets off to meet her infamous father, Robin Hood. He steals from the rich and gives to the poor, but has never found the time to visit his daughter. She masquerades as Rowan, a boy. Would he hate her for her sex? On her quest, Ro meets a harpist and singer, Lionel. They go along together. Ro finally meets Robin. She doesn't reveal herself. Soon, Robin is in trouble though. Can Ro and friends save him?


I read RH last summer, but I remember it being a good book. I liked when she revealed herself. This book I believe was made into a Disney movie called Princess of Thieves with Natalie Portman or Keira Kingsley. I may be mistaken, but I know it has similar content. I recommend this book for girks ages 10 and up.
