The Friday 56, Outlaw

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Link it to Freda's Voice.

The book this week is Outlaw by Angus Donald. A tale of Robin Hood, but it is not a romantic, sweet story. Robin is a hard man and his rule of the forest is filled with blood and violence.

The sentence:

But above all that, above the pain and death and horror and filth, I felt a great swooping, skylarking joy at merely being alive, joy that the enemy was beaten, and that we were victorious.
