LONGBOW GIRL, by Linda Davies

longbow

The story: Merry and James are best friends, though their families have been feuding for 800 years–since the day Henry VIII declared that one of Merry’s family had to be ready to serve as a longbowman in his army forever. When Merry finds an ancient manuscript that seems to promise treasure, she follows its directions to try to help her family. She never expected that the door would lead her through time, and that treasure isn’t always something you can count in dollars.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: There’s plenty of action in this tale of time travel/historical fiction. Boys will like this one too!
