Forest Days: A Romance of Old Times by George Payne Rainsford James (1799 - 1860).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/forest-days-a-romance-of-old-times-by-george-payne-rainsford-james/

Picture a tranquil English village, with an inn on the green. A lone patron enjoys his wine and teasing the landlord's pretty daughter, when suddenly they are rudely interrupted by a local aristocrat and his two henchmen. These same three reappear the following day to disrupt the May Day celebrations.Suddenly, a group of men in Lincoln green appear to save the day. But who are they? This is a different take on the tale of Robin Hood, placing him in the time of Henry III, rather than the more traditional reign of Richard I. James claims to have history on his side as he relates the story of an intelligent yeoman fighting against the tyrannical Henry and Simon de Montford of Leicester. Meanwhile, we follow the romance of Hugh and Lucy as they try to overcome the prejudices of her father and brother and the evil conniving of her cousin, Richard.( Lynne Thompson)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Section 6 PL OK
Oh yes, 4 of them were dressed, etc.
I love how these old stories include the care of the horses, taken for granted as an important thing in those days - when the story was written I mean, and in Robin's day.

I agree... but it seems in ch 7 that Lucy going missing is treated with some concern by her father. That hasn't changed :thumbs:
