Lady Marian Fitzwater is something of an oddity. Yes, she is beautiful, titled, and kind, but her tastes are far different from most young ladies of Nottingham. Often, she is found healing the poor, soiling her fine gowns with blood of the forgotten. Some Nobles hiss that she is a witch who uses fairy magic. This is somewhat true. Marian does work with fairies, but her healing abilities stem from tried and true methods handed down by her mother...or so she believes....
After the death of her parents, Marian finds she cannot pay the taxes on the vast Fitzwater estate. Desperate, she is about to accept a marriage proposal from Nottingham’s esteemed Sheriff when her childhood sweetheart, the notorious Robin Hood, appears. Suddenly, Marian finds herself fleeing the law. The story that follows is a magical romp through Sherwood Forest told from Marian's point of view. Although Marian appears pure as the driven snow, she is magical to the core. It simply takes Robin, a life on the run, and a host of fairies to help her realize this. Marian grows from the traditional damsel in distress to a self-sufficient young lady, who not only heals those in need, but also saves them with delightfully clever schemes.
The Adventures of Maid Marian is also a love story. Robin is spellbound by Marian's beauty, her open heart, and her magical healing gifts. Although he is determined to marry her, Marian refuses every ring he offers. They are, after all, stolen! Deep in Robin's ancestral home lies the family ring worn by his mother. Marian is determined to find it, so she dresses in a boy’s garb and steals off in search of the relic. On route, she encounters the fairies, who gift her with a new form of energy healing. The events that follow shake her to the core, especially when the Sheriff lures Robin into a trap where he is wounded, captured, and condemned for treason. Will Marian finally use her magic to save him?
