Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

Daughter of the Forest  (Sevenwaters, #1)

Goodreads Summary:  A beautiful retelling of the Celtic "Swans" myth, Daughter of the Forest is a mixture of history and fantasy, myth and magic, legend and love... 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 Sorcha to break the spell that condemns all that she loves. But magic knows no boundaries, and sorcha will have to choose between the live she has always known and a love that comes only once.

My Take:  This wasn't the book for me. I really tried to get into this book at one point I found myself just doing some skipping around and skimming to see where it was going and decided, this is not worth the effort to read.
