Beautiful Sorcha is the courageous young woman who risked all to save her family from a wicked curse and whose love shattered generations of hate and bridged two cultures. It is from her sacrifice that Sorcha's brothers were brought home to their ancestral fortress Sevenwaters, and her life has known much joy. But not all the brothers were able to fully escape the spell that transformed them into swans, and it is left to Sorcha's daughter Liadan to help fulfill the destiny of the Sevenwaters clan. Beloved child and dutiful daughter, Liadan embarks on a journey that shows her just how hard-won was the peace that she has known all her life. Liadan will need all of her courage to help save her family, for there are dark forces and ancient powers conspiring to destroy this family's peace--and their world. And she will need all of her strength to stand up to those she loves best, for in the finding of her own true love, Liadan's course may doom them all . . . or be their salvation.… (mere)

Book 2 in The Sevenwaters series. Sorcha's children's are all grown and the story is told by her youngest daughter Liadan. Liadan, like her mother has the gift of sight, and the skill of healing. Secrets are revealed, people from the past re-appear and alliances are shaken when Liadan is kidnapped by a band of rouge warriors. The journey she is on will test her will, her faith and the ties that hold the people of Sevenwaters together

[a:Juliet Marillier|8649|Juliet Marillier|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1373081365p2/8649.jpg]'s writing is so beautiful and she sweeps me away into this old Gaelic world. Historical Fantasy, romance, a family saga-this book has all of that and more. A wonderful series I will continue to the end. ( )

I found it a bit more slow-paced this second time reading it. ( )

Second in the Sevenwaters series. Marillier treads a fine line between combining the myths and tales and historical, geographical details. This is Ireland, make no mistake, sometime in the 'dark ages.' Sevenwaters, the small fiefdom, is a remote pagan holdout in the north but slowly they are losing ground. They are most desperate to regain control of three tiny islands off their coast and this makes them vulnerable, not only to the ever expanding Britons, but to the few remaining magical adepts who, as Marillier puts it, have no scruples about exceeding the boundaries and practicing the darker arts. This installment is the story of Sorcha's children, especially the youngest daughter. The family does have a penchant for falling madly in love with the wrong person, and Liadan is no exception. What I truly enjoyed was learning something about the founding of the special island of ethical (sort of) warriors for hire and her love affair was quite a cliff hanger. So, overall, good. As ever Marillier's plots depend totally on the reader suspending judgement about general clunky obviousness, but it's the genre and it's ok! ***1/2 ( )

This is a continuation of Daughter of the Forest, though with a new heroine, Sorcha's daughter, Liadan. The children of Sorcha and Red have grown up at Sevenwaters but still live under the shadow of the prophecy. Liadan has followed in her mother's footsteps as a healer while her sister Niamh and twin brother Sean follow their own paths. Yet, Liadan is the one who ends up with the most complicated story when she is kidnapped by a band of mercenaries.
In some ways, I liked this book better than the first in the series (though I enjoyed that also). This was an entirely new story while the first is a very good take of Andersen's The Wild Swans. So I knew what was going to happen in the first but this one was more suspenseful. Liadan is resourceful and courageous, a wonderful heroine. Bran is an interesting character in so many ways, not the usual hero but perfect for Liadan. Their journey is fascinating and kept me reading long past my bedtime.
While the story is set in old Ireland of the 9th-10th centuries, the author uses beautiful language to evoke the legends and stories of the various peoples settled there, whether Celts, Britons, and Vikings. This is just a lovely series for readers who like fantasy and Celtic lore. ( )

It took me several years to even contemplate buying this book, and several more to read it. I have such a reader-girl crush on Sorcha from the previous book, "Daughter of the Forest," that I didn't want anything to change that story.

And this book brings a new story into the Sevenwaters part of Ireland, partial setting of "Daughter" and the touchpoint for where this family is part of the land. It begins with the younger daughter, a twin, of Sorcha and Red and her path that she has determined for herself: to live at Sevenwaters, perhaps marry, but continue her mother's healing tradition for the people. Of course events transpire that change her view, and also included are the continuations of the stories of Conor and Liam and even Padraig and Finbar. And of course Sorcha.

This book also deals with a child's trauma and how it affects him as an adult, a young woman's trauma when she is given to a man she does not wish as her husband, and the choice to follow what the Old Ones say or to make one's own determination about one's path. Those are the overarching themes; the most immediate ones are the threat of the Painted Man and his band of hired mercenaries who can appear, kill, and disappear, and the role of the Druids and how they control the world around them.

Excellent writing, well-created characters, and a good continuation of the Sevenwaters story. ( )
