Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a wonderful storyteller Juliet Marillier is. I absolutely loved this book It was so deep and full of emotions. The retelling of the seven swans was done wonderfully. I thought at the beginning I was going to have a hard time reading this, but the author has a way of telling a story that makes you want to listen and yearn for more.
Sorcha the sister of seven brothers that were put under a spell, had to endure a lot to break the curse the evil witch that also married their father and enchanted him put on them. She had to take a vow of silence and make six shirts out of this weed, plant, or flower.(wasn't quite sure what is was) but it was called stawort and was painful to touch. She also could not mention in any kind of way what task she had and why...
She went through so much and had been so strong through this whole entire book I really felt for her and her brothers. Then she gets kidnapped and rapped at some point and meets the love of her life course she doesn't realize this till the end but their friendship that turned into love was beautifully written. I fell in love with Red he was truly a man of worth.
I recommend this book to all who love a good fantasy story thats filled with action, love, death, trauma, and is spiritual and touches your heart and makes your truly believe that love is the strongest thing we have in life..
Here is my Sorcha and Red. :) Happy Reading
