Gr 7 Up—Skilled at hunting and thieving, Julianna Wessex lives in hiding in the forest to protect her identity as a member of the ruling family now under the control of her cruel uncle. In this Robin Hood—esque tale, Julianna takes from the wealthy to help the poor survive. Falling for a wealthy knight, one of those she has robbed, is the last thing she expects. But she and Collin are destined to suffer before they can find happiness. The power of the rich and the brutality of life for the poor in medieval England is made apparent without being too gruesome. Full of danger, betrayal, loyalty, friendship, and romance, this story will engage listeners. Hayley Cresswell's quality reading utilizes a variety of voices to bring the characters to life, shifting between male and female voices and the points of view of Julianna and Collin with skill and dexterity.
VERDICT Listeners will enjoy this story with Christian themes as well as ties to folklore and fairy tales.
