    Real life is not quite as it is in stories In the old tales, bad things happen, and when the tale has unfolded and come to its triumphant conclusion, it is as if the bad things had never been Life is not as simple as that, not quite The above quote, hands down, sums up Daughter of the Forest for me Yes, this is a fairy tale, but it also speaks truth about life about how once you go forward, you cannot go back to the beginning because things are never

    All that he had of her was his memory,where he held every moment,every single moment that she had been his.That was all he had,to keep out the lonelinessDaughter of the Forest is one of those books.The ones that are scored on my heart,the ones that caused both my awe and respect for the story and for the author.For it takes a tremendous amount of talent and soul to write such a book.I recall the tale of the Six Swans,I remember being a little girl watching the ani

    4.7 starsAside from a couple of minor qualms, Daughter of the Forest is pretty much an example of an almost perfect debut novel.This book is a beautiful retelling of the Celtic Swans myth, which has been familiar to me since childhood through the Hans Christian Andersen s version The Wild Swans Sorcha is the seventh child and the only daughter of Lord Colum of Sevenwaters When Colum remarries after being widowed for almost 13 years, the evil stepmother and witch puts a d

    While this is beautifully written, I probably wouldn t have gotten through this without listening to it on audio during a long car ride I think, as others have noted, it s the main characters lack of agency that made the story harder to connect to Things happen to her, mostly caused by others, she literally has no voice for most of the story and even when she does it s mostly pushed aside Realistic for the time it s set in but not a story I love to engage with Fans of the Winternight trilogy
