Publisher Description

Daughter of the Forest is a testimony to an incredible author's talent, a first novel and the beginning of a trilogy like no other: a mixture of history and fantasy, myth and magic, legend and love.

Lord Colum of Sevenwaters is blessed with six sons: Liam, a natural leader; Diarmid, with his passion for adventure; twins Cormack and Conor, each with a different calling; rebellious Finbar, grown old before his time by his gift of the Sight; and the young, compassionate Padriac.

But it is Sorcha, the seventh child and only daughter, who alone is destined to defend her family and protect her land from the Britons and the clan known as Northwoods. For her father has been bewitched, and her brothers bound by a spell that only Sorcha can lift.

To reclaim the lives of her brothers, Sorcha leaves the only safe place she has ever known, and embarks on a journey filled with pain, loss, and terror.

When she is kidnapped by enemy forces and taken to a foreign land, it seems that there will be no way for her to break the spell that condemns all that she loves. But magic knows no boundaries, and Sorcha will have to choose between the life she has always known and a love that comes only once.

Juliet Marillier is a rare talent, a writer who can imbue her characters and her story with such warmth, such heart, that no reader can come away from her work untouched.

Daughter of the forest

Probably the best book I've read. It's beautiful and lyrical and deeply magical and so lovely. If only I can find a man like Red. It will stay with you for a long time and then some... A must read of all book lovers.

Great Story!!

Absolutely amazing, and has kept me hooked on her writing for the past few years. I can't help but reread them from time to time!

Daughter of the Forest

Do not get this on iBook!!! But do read it in print. This is at least a four star book but I am beyond disappointed in the ebook version! I had it in print and lost it and decided to just get it on iBooks. There are so many typographical errors in the digital version my reading experience was ruined. It seems that it could not have been edited at all.
