Hawksmaid by Kathryn Lasky is a retelling of Robin Hood and Maid Marion.
A children’s fiction story of Maid Marion, this was not at all what I was hoping for it to be, in that while it contained action and plot, it also contained Christianity and praying every few chapters. I liked the writing in regards to the Hawks and raising birds in general, and how Matty was a strong girl throughout the story, surviving harsh environments, however I felt the story wasn’t quite meant for me, and that younger audiences would definitely appreciate it more.
I appreciated the writing, and characters, however I doubt that I’ll come back to this book again in the future. Another book that’s been on my TBR shelf for years, I’m pleased at finally getting around to reading it, and getting it off the pile at last.
3 out of 5 stars.
Until next time,
Pass Me That Book
