This was a really sweet book, and would recommend this to all ages. Its about a dryad(tree spirit) that falls in love with a king, when they have a child she is not told her mothers past but still longs to adventure, a truly beautiful novel.

This was a great little story for early readers of fantasy. An easy read, uncomplicated, and nicely innocent for young readers. Perfect for kids who enjoyed the "Enchanted Forest Chronicles" by Patricia Wrede.
