When I started reading this book, I had no idea it would turn out to be one of the best books I have read in a long time. Sorcha and her six brothers live in a beautiful forest in 9th century Ireland. Their mother is dead and they are very close. When their father remarries an evil woman, she decided she does not want his children around so she places a spell on the brothers and turns them into swans. Sorcha, who has escaped is given a task to complete by the Forest Fairies before the spell can be broken. she is 13 years old and sets out to do the difficult task, but is beset by many hardships, including being taken to Britain where she finds another mystery she has to undo. Then she must choose between her brothers and love. Great read. Highly recommended.
