Monica Furlong has outdone herself again with this prequel to "Wise Child". Delving into the past, we come to learn more about Juniper and how she aquired her powers. Readers will enjoy Juniper's transformation from Princess to Doran, as she comes to realize too that looks can be decieving, and that what is inside is what truely counts.

If you haven't read Wise Child, read that first and then come back to this book.

Now that you've presumably read Wise Child, you get to read Juniper, which goes back in time to tell her life story. Juniper has her own tales of being sent to live with her doran, Euny, against her will and the threat of her evil aunt Meroot brings her into her own power. Experiencing Juniper as a student who is learning not only about her healing skills but also about herself as a woman is fascinating to read after seeing her as the self-assured and humble wise woman that she is in the previous book. Just writing this recommendation makes me want to read my worn copy again.
