Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

How do you know you've read a fantastic book? You are absolutely desperate for the story to continue and you want to run out and buy every book the author has ever written. For me this was one of those books, there was something about Sorcha's story that touched my very soul. As though her story some how connected to my own and it left me wanting so much more.

Daughter of the Forest is about a young girl who is a healer by nature, she has grown up with the love and fierce protection of her six brothers. When an evil step mother comes along and changes her life for ever. Her beloved brothers are taken away and the only way she can get them back is to embark on a cruel and arduous task.

The book is written in first person which is quiet amazing considering that Sorcha was unable to speak for 3/4 quarters of the book. There was a slight lull in the middle of the book but it didn't take long for it to pick up again. A wonderful book written by an extraordinary writer.
