A beautiful tale celtic lore woven in between a tale of strength and love,
This review is from: Daughter of the Forest: Book 1 of the Sevenwaters Trilogy (Paperback)
I first saw this book in 2001, I had taken a book off of its shelf in the libabry when "daughter of the forest" fell on my foot, to this day i see that injury as an act of fate, because this book changed reading for me. It was the first time a book has managed to captivate me, you wont be able to put this book down till your finished, and even then you will want to pick it up again. The tale of Sorcha, her brothers and Hugh is one beautifuly illustrated by Marrilers natural story telling ability. The celtic lore within the book adds one more dimension to a story whose charachters you instantly care for. This story is full of magic but not the type some will expect, marriler describes herself as a modern day druid and the magic seen in the book is that of pagan faith and the earth. A WARNING though to some readers, this book does contain rape, but it is well done, and important to the plot, so be prepared. I would suggest all of marrilers books (save one, the child of the prophecy)and I hope they have as profound effect on you as they did on me.
