Publisher's Summary

Centuries ago, valiant men and courageous women engaged in daring adventures as they helped their fellow man. In the country of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty, but all is not well. A group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.
With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor's daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor's daughter, will love override her values?

Entertaining Robin Hood-Type Adventure

The Highwaymen of Cordovia by Linda Weaver Clarke continues the adventures that started in The Rebels of Cordovia, an entertaining Robin Hood-type saga. In the first book, we met the daughter of a local baker, Robin, who secretly taught a small group of vigilantes to fight for basic freedoms against a tyrant king who taxed his subjects into extreme poverty. In the second book, we meet the daughter of a preacher, Christine, who besides her daily chores and visits to the less fortunate, she writes articles that reveal corruption that remain in the upper classes after the king’s exile, especially in a group that call themselves “The Kingsman.”

This story basically begins when Christine’s borrowed carriage is accosted by a group of highwaymen who attempt to steal valuables from her. Thankfully, these highwaymen are truly like the legendary Robin Hood, who only steal from the rich and give what they steal back to the poor. The rest of the story is how Christine and one of the highwaymen discover they are fighting for the same cause, how one of the handsome highwaymen saves her from the leader of the Kingsmen who wants her dead, and how they fall in love in the process.

Carolyn Kashner narrated the Audible version of this audiobook, which was very enjoyable. She varied her voices for both male and female characters and inflected just the right amount of emotion in all the right places. I really look forward to listening to the next great adventure in The Rebels series!

Another rousing tale

I want to live in Cordovia where all of these adventures take place! I didn’t get to listen to the book straight through and that made it harder for me to get into the characters. But when I finally got a chunk of time they grew on me fast. Always a lot going on in this series!
