#Review: A Daring Sacrifice by @JodyHedlund

If Robin Hood were a girl, what would her adventures be?

A Daring Sacrifice
 Jody Hedlund

In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise.

I received a review copy of this book (via BookLookBloggers) in exchange for an honest review.

Jody Hedlund does it again, bringing an amazing mixture of fiction and faith, adding a bit of history for amazingly good measure. For those familiar with the tale of Robin Hood, this is definitely a refreshing twist to the tale. You find yourself in the character's shoes, with surprises around every corner, as well as thrilling action and adventure as she steals from the rich to give to the poor. The story has a good pace, characters that you learn to love. Plenty of adventure to keep you on your twos. The books is amazing!

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
I love Jody Hedlund's writing. I can never get enough. I own a few of her work and I always go back to re-read them. This book is no different. I read the first chapters with my younger brothers, all big fans of the original Robin Hood story. I loved bringing the story to life for them, and I know they may not have understood some of the story, it being with a girl character and all.
