In Italy the third book of this trilogy, The Path of the She-Wolf, never got traslated and published - and never will be, I suppose.So, after only 10 years (or is it 15?) I finally got an English copy of the whole trilogy about time I get to finish the story!

I'm a great fan of Teresa Tomlinson's Moon Riders about the warriors and expected more of the same here. The story is certainly promising, with a young Maid Marian taking over the title of 'Forestwife' and making her home in a remote forest hut as a healer and mystical Green Lady of the wood, where she soon links up with the author's historical version of Robin Hood and his band of outlaws. Robin - or Robert in this trilogy - provides a gentle romance angle in keeping with the age of the reader [...]

Stories of Robin Hood have always fascinated me. This author wished to write a book from the female point of view. She also likes Robin Hood, but as she wanted the female viewpoint, her main character had to be Maid Marian. I think that looking through Marian's eyes is an excellent way to tell a story of the outlaws of Barnsdale & Sherwood, and Ms. Tomlinson produced an intriguing book that included Robin's adventures, Marian's role which actually became the female's role in the Medieval Age [...]

This one book is actually a trilogy which tells the story of Robin Hood and Maid Marian. I read the first book in this trilogy when I was a kid and was in love with it. I loved the idea of Marian living in the woods and healing the sick with Robin coming and going and helping the common man. Coming back to it was like meeting an old friend and I just loved it. Then I finished and went on to the next book. What a disappointment. I think the 'and they lived happily ever after' ending of the first [...]

I've read this book about 100 times. I first read it when I was about 9 or 10, I don't remember when, but ever since then I have taken it off the shelf at random points and read it over and over again. Despite this, I always find the story thrilling and just what they should be! It's the best Robin Hood book I've ever read!!

A 'powerful retelling' this book certainly is. Tomlinson deserves major kudos for the concept behind this novel alone - and the convincing narrative she weaves, combining legend with legend and her own ideas - makes this one of the most satisfying versions of the Robin Hood story I've come across. And I'm pretty obsessed with Robin Hood.This book's female focus is immediately striking, with a huge cast of varied, realistic, well rounded and convincing female characters. This was incredibly refre [...]

I've read the first book of the trilogy years ago, in italian, and I had a good, if confused, memory of it.When I've started reading it this time, the first pages were not the most entertaining thing ever (they also contained ANTIQUE ENGLISH!, and that's not easy when english is not your mothertongue), and I thought this book would probably be very long and kinda boring to read, with just enough good stuff to keep me going.However, three or four chapters in, it suddenly got interesting! And it s [...]

I decided to re-read this as something gentle to get back into reading, but not without a little trepidation. I adored these books as a teen, I honestly can say they were formative for me - would they stand up to the test of time and a more mature perspective? Well, I needn't have worried. I was gripped from the first page, revisiting old friends and adventures. This is a book about the women of the Robin Hood tales, and what women! Young, old, peasants, noblewomen, all with well-rounded and var [...]

an absoloutley AMAZING book.A different telling of the traditional Robin Hood legend that still instills the same morals. Marian is such a strong and intelligent woman who shows that you don't need a man to go out and fight (or to stay in and fight). I first read it when I was 11 and almost 10 years later it still makes me laugh and cry.Just an amazing book and if you love the Robin Hood legend I'd definitely recommend it.The one (single) downside is it's directed at Young Adults and as an actua [...]

I've heard the Forestwife is very good, the sequel is Child of the May, and there's a third one, Path of the She Wolf, which was only published in the UK. How can they not publish the 3rd of a trilogy? Well I saw that the trilogy is a available in this omnibus, so I think I'm going to order it from .*Update 2-11-09 Requested this about a week ago, and it has just come in. (Forestwife by itself I mean, not the trilogy omnibus) If I like I will order the whole trilogy.

This is an alternative look at the Robin Hood story, but instead of centreing around Robin himself, it centres around the women of Nottingham Forest - including Maid Marian herself, who becomes the Forestwife, and looks after those who need it. I liked the different take on the traditional story, and the way that Marian is not portrayed as a damsel in distress type figure. The book also well fits the YA category, and I reccomended it to friends after reading.

this book. Is justAZINGink you like Robin Hood? this take on it is truly fantastic. instead of watching the boys as they fight, it follows the female characters, Marian, as they stay behind. the saga follows them as they age, but never drift apart no matter the distance.mind you, i cant read it without crying

Is it to bold to say that Theresa Tomlinson's work has shaped the woman you see today? The strength and strong willed characters she writes of have truly inspired me since I was a teenager. An amazing book!

I borrowed this from a Uni friend when she noted that the author was local to my hometown and I devoured it in one sitting. A refreshing, historically-rooted female-focused tour-de-force through Robin Hood folklore.

DNF at page 93. I really liked the idea of this book but I just couldn't get into it and I didn't like the way the characters spoke or the writing style in general.
