Rating: 4 stars
Making Marion is a bit of a modern retelling of Robin Hood with a twist. Marian Miller is an Irish library employee who walks away from an engagement. She travels to Sherwood England in order to find out about her father's past. He died when she was a child. Instead she ends up at the Peace and Pigs camp ground and working for a woman named Scarlet. She meets Reuben Hatherstone the son of the lord of the neighboring estate.
Making Marion is the typical chick lit, and once you get past the British humor it a fairly quick read. I enjoyed this Robin Hood twist complete with Robin Hood festival. Marian is Marian while Reuben is the Robin character.
Making Marion is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love with the characters. You will hurt and ache and mourn with them. But will cheer when two characters ride off in to a happily ever after. I am looking forward to the author's next book.
