Daughter of the Forest

by Juliet Marillier

Grade: To Own

It's just such a dense, yet fast-reading book. Deep, complicated, and the heroine doesn't marry the person I thought she would at first.

Loved the brothers (although I didn't like any particular one as much as I thought I would), loved the handling of sexual matters (They actually got married first! And the rape.), liked Red (cool name, eh?), liked Fr. Brien, didn't  quite like the spiritual, druidy, stuff.

I want to own it because... I'm not sure why. It's certainly not the highest, highest on my list of "To Own", but it still deserves a place.
