This week I’m eagerly waiting on:
The Forest Queen by Betsy Cornwell
Expected publication: 7 AUgust 2018
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
When sixteen-year-old Sylvie’s brother takes over management of their family’s vast estates, Sylvie feels powerless to stop his abuse of the local commoners. Her dearest friend asks her to run away to the woods with him, and soon a host of other villagers join them. Together, they form their own community and fight to right the wrongs perpetrated by the king and his noblemen.
Why I’m eagerly awaiting…
This is a female-led Robin Hood retelling, and I like the sound of a strong young woman who runs away from her stifling life to live in the woods.
