Maid Marian is not great literature, but it was a pleasant read on a long flight home. Elsa Watson has put her own spin on the old Robin Hood-Maid Marian legend. In this version, Robin is a poor Saxon youth fleeing from the law and Marion a weathy heiress married as a child to a young nobleman by her guardian and evil Queen Eleanor. It seemed that Robin Hood was missing from much of the tale, but it was told from Marian's point of view. Needless to say, by the end of the novel, the evil are vanquished and Robin and Marian live happily ever after
