    One of the coolest things about Longbow Girl is that while the events happen in present day, one character lives in an actual castle and another on a working farm so it feels a bit like it is set in the past A pretty groovy way of lending an authentic feel to a story entrenched in history When an old tomb is inadvertently uncovered, Merry discovers an old book that appears to be one of the tomes from the Middle Welsh collection

    I knew I would probably enjoy Longbow Girl, but I wasn t expecting to fall utterly head over heels in love with it Longbow Girl is a tale of one young women in two different times After losing her eye continuing her families heritage of producing longbow men, 16 year old Merry s fierce independence puts her family s farm at risk to the neighbouring de Courcys, who are still holding a centuries old grudge over what they see as their land in t

    A great stand alone story The world Linda Davies builds really drew me in and Merry was a great character, it was easy to stand with her and get behind her on her adventure little bit of a spoiler here I do like a good romance story but most books with a female protagonist really tend to over do the whole star crossed lovers thing and this book handled the romance subtly and as a sub plot which really appealed, their friendship, their heritage and the story came

    My 6th grade son and i listened to the audio because it is a Lone Star book Even though the title has Girl in it, I think it appeals to both genders because the girl is far from a princess She has a supporting character male friend The book involves mystery, time travel, archery and to keep everyone interested.
