About the Author
A. C. Gaughen is an independent essayist and customary blogger who has had a few stories distributed in the Chicken Soup for the Soul arrangement. While going to school in Scotland, which she accepts to be the most sentimental and commonly lovely place on the planet, AC got to be enchanted of the nation's rich history and fables. She now exists in Massachusetts with her two-year old goldendoodle.
I was never a tremendous enthusiast of the Robin Hood legend, yet Gaughen's voice and narrating had me from the first page. The lingo feels proper for the post-Crusades authentic time, but then everything else feels crisp and very nearly contemporary without feeling chronologically miguided... not exactly beyond any doubt how she figured out how to draw that off. Red is an adorable and thoughtful MC. On the surface she's extreme as nails and stands her ground with Robin's band, however underneath everything, she's injured by her past and by the mysteries she must keep, particularly her affections for Robin. What's more Robin... swoon! Mysterious, defensive, and injured himself, he's my most loved sort of heading man. Their kindred mate, John, a presumptuous swaggering rebel adds by most accounts pressure and stew to the transactions, yet this isn't about sentiment. Gaughen deftly adjusts the character-driven piece with some stirring activity and experience arrangements and an indecently underhanded Guy Gisbourne. I grinned through a large portion of this book and dashed enthusiastically through the last 50 activity splashed pages. Cherished it!!!
