Brown Hannah is a mysterious girl who lives with her animal friends in the Tanglewood; in her hair grow leaves and flowers, and she helps the people of a nearby village with herbs and charms. When she meets a knight in search of the fabled treasure of the Tanglewood and challenges the enigmatic wizard who lives at the heart of the wood, she decides to leave the wood in search of her true identity.

Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood is as beautifully written as Pierce's other books, but lacks a little in plot. Unfortunately, although Hannah is an engagingly naive and charming character, the mystery of her identity becomes clear to the reader much sooner than it does to Hannah, and thus the ending is a let-down, lacking suspense and a clear resolution.
