Friday 56: Scarlet by Stephen R. Lawhead

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. The aim is to share a few sentences of a book (whether it’s the one your’re currently reading or not) so other people might be enticed to pick it up.

Here’s the rules:

– Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
– Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
– Post it.
– Add the url of your post to the Linky on Freda’s most recent post.


Ropes were produced and the ends snaked over the strong beam of the gallows arm; sturdy nooses were looped around the necks of the three Cymry – one old, one young, and one in his prime – whose only real crime under heaven was having been captured by Normans. As the nooses were being tightened, there came a shout from the crowd. “Wait! Stop the execution!”

That was from 56% mark on my kindle book of Scarlet by Stephen R. Lawhead.


    1. It’s from the second book in the King Raven trilogy which is a retelling of the Robin Hood legend. I’d not read any sort of historical fiction before I don’t think but I’m really enjoying it.

      Thanks! She’s a family friends dog and she is definitely smart but then she uses that to sometimes cause mischief. 🙂

    1. This is only the second book of his I’ve read, after the first book in the trilogy Hood.
      That’s sometimes the problem with meme’s like this – you always find more books to put on your ever-growing wish list.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Yeah, I’m actually enjoying the series way more than I thought – especially as I tried to read the first book years ago and couldn’t get into it.
      Oh wow! Thank you! That’s so kind 🙂
