Maid Marian

The Aroma of Books

009

 

by Elsa Watson

Published 2004

I actually really enjoyed this book.  And I didn’t have very high expectations.  It seems as though most recently-published books that focus on a heroine instead of a hero, especially when the hero is well-known, become more of a treatise on the Independence of Women and the Stupidity of Man.  But Watson has written a book that delves much deeper than that, telling the story of a young woman who becomes determined to direct her own fate, and yet who manages to still love and respect the man whom she has chosen.

This is a story that unwinds better without too much foreknowledge, so simply go read it for yourself and enjoy.  While I prefer some more humor to leaven my fictional reading, this was still a well-crafted tale.  4/5.
