Lord Colum of Sevenwaters is blessed with seven children but it is Sorcha, the youngest child and only daughter, who alone is destined to defend her family and protect their land from the invading Britons. For Sorcha is the only one who escapes the cruel influence of Lady Oonagh, her father's new wife.

Exiled from Sevenwaters and cast out into the forest and the terrifying world beyond, Sorcha falls into the hands of the feared enemy. Now she is torn between a life she has always known and a love that only comes once.

Daughter of the Forest is a mixture of history and heritage, myth and magic, legend and love.

"I enjoyed it immensely... For an Irish resident, familiar with the mores and customs, Daughter of the Forest had special meaning and relevance." (Anne McCaffrey)

I read the paperback book and absolutely loved it. What it doesn't say in this synopsis is that it's also inspired by fairytales, which gives it a magical quality, perfect for those of us who don't quite want to let go of that childhood magic. So good it should be made into a movie (or a TV series). I wouldn't have bought it based on this synopsis, thankfully I was able to read the back of the book and decide for myself. Now I count Juliet Marillier as one of my favourite authors. You will never regret buying this book, especially at this price. The low price certainly doesn't reflect the excellent quality of the writing. Better still, buy the series, they are all really good books.
