In "Wildwood Dancing", Juliet Marillier creates a lush world that blends beautiful fairytales and real-world struggle in the wilds of historical Transylvania. It was a very moving story and the characters were very well-written.

I loved the protagonist, Jena, and her longtime frog companion, Gogu. To be so young and to carry so much responsibility on your shoulders - and to fight for that responsibility in a time when women were considered little more than decorative homemakers - impressed me. I often wished that I could defend her to the men in her world that sought to push her down and set her aside.

Definitely worth a read.
