This book is a prequel to "Wise Child", though both of them can be read as stand alones. Ninnoc is the prized and pampered daughter of a king, who eventually is sent away to live with a wise relative in the woods. Her god mother is a gruff and cranky peasant, and life in a shack in the forest is quite different from life in a castle with servants. This book is short in length, but rich in the kinds of details that make a story come to life.
