Tessa's book review: Daughter of the forest by Juliet Marillier

    Daughter of the Forest was an outstanding read--Jacket coverone that kept me turning the next page in anticipation. Although it is a retelling of The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen, this book was as fresh and unexpected as a totally new story.  The atmosphere is enchanting and the book is lyrical, taking flight in so many ways.

Read it and you'll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don't need outside investors, and why you're better off ignoring the competition. The truth is you need less than you think.
