This book need more romance and it's okay but it's still a 7.
So this time I was thinking of doing some quotes along with the review. Since I don't do any quotes in any of my review so this is the first.
Here are the quotes.........
".....house built right into the branches of the tree and covered in a thick shag of pine needles."
Valerie's grandma's house is full of wild trees and other things.
"Lucie's hands were soft and round, a little bit pillowy..."
That's is one hand. Never touch a hand like that before.
"No, it isn't Peter"
"But What if-"
The Woodcutter is scary her well who cares he's the one who likes her.
"Suzette sweetened Lucie's water with a nip of honey, but Valerie, she knew, had no use for it."
Oh Wow!That's why Valerie isn't my favorite character in this book and there are no favorite characters. Well maybe iI should change that back Lucie looks nice and kind so yeah Maybe her.
"Peter will find a place on it...."
UMMM what did that mean huh Valerie?
"The full moon was last night..."
The full moon mean the wolf is awake and it would kill people now.
"One day, she thought, I will live with Peter in a home for us two,and there willbe an orchard and also a narrow flowing stream where we will both bathe and swim. The sun will sing in the afternoons, and at night birds will tuck their heads under their wings in wait."
o-O Valerie is so in love with this guy when she is bethroned to another guy. O-O Wierd!!
Uh Oh! Something happen to Lucie!!!!!
"...ran and fell before Lucie's liftless body, clutching desperately at shreds of hay....couldn't bring herself to touch her sister's body. Lucie was in her finest dress, but the fabric was tattered and barely served to confine her body....her hair,a formal four-strand braid, plaited carefully..had loosened into matted strands."
Oh No! What a sad news now Valerie is very sad. Lucie is dead kill by the wolf.
"The Beast lured her away, said Suzette...She was with you,Roxanne turned to Prodence."I know i saw her in your boat," She was in my boat, and then she said she was meeting you."
Ummmmm!so one of the women is telling a lie and one of them kill Lucie instead of the wolf or the wolf kill her.
To Peter:"If you really love her,You'll leave her alone."
Uhhh! what's is wrong with this mother can't you like let your daughter pick her own husband. What is this the 50's or the 40's?
Well that's all I have for now
