.: Daughter of the Forest :. by KuramaPhoenix .: Daughter of the Forest :. by KuramaPhoenix
Based on Book One in The Sevenwaters Trilogy (My favorite Book) www.julietmarillier.com

.: Feel free to download it as wallpaper, it should be the right size :.

First published in 1999, Daughter of the Forest is loosely based on the traditional story of The Six Swans, which appears in Grimm's Fairy Tales and has been re-told in many versions, including one by Hans Christian Andersen.

In Daughter of the Forest, the fairy tale story - a youngest sister must maintain complete silence while weaving shirts from nettles in order to return her swan brothers to human form - is combined with a family drama set on both sides of the Irish Sea. More than anything, this is a story about the bond of love between siblings.

I love this book! My friend just introduced me to the series. I'm on the second one now. This is a lovely picture. I love how the only color is the green in the leaves, but it blends in well at the same time.
