puppitypup | 53 comments The girl's brothers are under a curse that turns them into swans. She manages to turn them back, but one of them is left with a wing rather than an arm.

Thank you :)


Melanti | 333 comments Being a fairy tale, there's many like this.

You might want to start here:

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (themis-athena) | 71 comments The original story is the Grimm Brothers' The Six Swans:

Maybe the adaptation you mean is Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier?

Another version of the story is contained in Andrew Lang's Yellow Fairy Book.

Marsha (queenboadicea) | 74 comments The Seventh Swan is the one I immediately thought of because I actually remember reading it. It’s really easy to remember because of its cover: The Seventh Swan by Nicholas Stuart Gray .

puppitypup | 53 comments Thank you! It was Daughter of the Forest, but now I will have to read the Seventh Son too!

Congrats on finding your book! Birdwing is a YA book based on the same fairy tale. Just throwing it out there in case someone else is looking for it. :)

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) (themis-athena) | 71 comments Congratulations, and enjoy -- all of them! :)
