Rachel | 6 comments Its a Story about a red haired girl who goes on a quest(maybe to find her father) i think her name was Rose or something like a flower. she has a magical power with plants or roses or something and knows how to use a staff to defend herself .She has a friend that is a minstrel boy and there is a grumpy tree man thing that also travels with her . it wasn't a huge book more like a medium sized paperback in the YA section of the library. it had a beautiful picture on the front of a girl with long flowing red hair and a brown cloak or cape with a metal rose pendant and green leggings she is standing in the woods holding a wooden staff with a carved rose and vine .maybe there was a rose bush also in a lower corner almost hiding is a weird little twiggy looking man thing . I read this book 12-15years ago and our library had just bought it so not sure if it was a new release or not . apparently it wasn't that popular because they sold it in the next book sale and i couldn't find it again. Thanks in advance

Dreamhunter? The cover doesn't match, but one of the MC is named Rose and there is a father who has disappeared.

The Conjurer Princess?

Was the cover a photograph or an illustration?

Bargle | 1218 comments Forgot to mention that in the Piers Anthony books, the twiggy little man figure is Grundy Golem. Does that name ring a bell?

Authors Robin McKinley and Patricia C. Wrede - suggested by Samina.

Polly (pollya) | 121 comments The description of the cover reminds me of a combination of some of Charles de Lint's non-urban fantasy covers. I'm pretty sure it's neither Robin McKinley nor Patricia Wrede, I am very familiar with all their books.
