Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

19 Sep

First in the Sevenwaters Trilogy, this novel is a re-telling of the six swans fairy tale.  Sorcha is the seventh daughter after six brothers.  Their mother is dead and their father distant.  When their father marries an evil woman who has bewitched him, the brothers are turned into swans and it is up to Sorcha to set them free.

A great quest, and lyrical writing, wonderful character development, and a contemplative look at the struggle between old ways and new ways makes this book a rich read.   2000. 400 pages
