From International Robin Hood Bibliography

The plot of Philip Lindsay's historical novel The Nutbrown Maid combines that of the ballad of the same name with the story lines of a number of Robin Hood ballads. It all takes place c. 1350. According to a review in the TLS, the "characters are feverishly alive. If all lovers and parents in the fourteenth century had been so fanciful, perverse and changeable, probably no twentieth-century descendants would exist to read about them."[1]
