This is the story of Aylaina MacLeod, aTime Traveler.  When Aylaina makes her maiden voyage into time, she quickly realises she has gone BACK in ttime to the 12th century, and Sherwood Forest, the Robin Hood era.  But the Robin Hood legend she discovers, is not like any other legend she has ever read about.  Follow along as Aylaina becomes part of the Merry Men and the mischief she gets into as she tries to make her mark on history.

I have incorporated the final two episodes of the BBC series that aired in 2009.  "Something Worth Fighting For"
My objective was to put right what once went wrong by sending a young woman from the future to change history.

If you are expecting a dark, Twighlight-like Guy, you'll be a bit disappointed.  My 'Guy' is a tortured soul, yes, brooding , yes, but he has a side that comes out upon meeting the heroine.  I believe you will recognise the character as Richard Armitage portrayed him and I believe I have captured the personalities of the other characters from the series.

My heart-felt thanks and appreciation go out to my marvelous betas, Fanny Thornton and Tully2Shoes for all their hard work in trying to teach me the art of creative writing, grammar and punctuation!  Much love to the two of you<3   Jeannie

I think Aylaina would have done better with the Doctor and the tardis. *grins*

@Hobnails Hi Peter. Thanks so much for taking the time to read, comment and vote. I appreciate any and all criticism  Could you please elaborate on what you mean by "jarring" and how to work on that phrase. I'd like to make it more palatable for others to read.  Thanks again!
