Though this book is under the Children's ebook section, I think it's a fabulous read for any age, for anyone who loves a good fairy-tale. I know I'm a sucker for fairy-tales!
The Winnowwood are a race of women who have special powers to heal animals and some to control the elements, but though they have these powers, they are born plain and with an extra digit on their pinky that is a conduit or talisman to their magic. Every time they use their magic they become uglier - new wart, boil, lump, or scar.
At some time there was a war between the Winnowwood and witches, as a result one witch put a curse on them. It's not a typical curse that you'd expect though. For this curse, gives the Winnowwood the parallel equivalent to their ugliness in beauty, but at a high price.
This story is written in 1st person, from the perspective of Princess Olive. She and her sister are the last of their kind that possess their magic, and thus their ugliness. From the beginning Princess Olive embraced her magic and her heritage, never straying. She is brave with a tender heart, and has the propensity to help animals whenever they need her, and even extends her generosity to help those who scorn her with an open repulsion toward her. But you can definitely feel her heart and feel for her. There were a few moments while reading this that I found myself in tears.
There aren't a lot of descriptive details as far as the appearance of the majority of the characters, except for a noteable feature here or there. The main male character, unless I missed it, was only described vaguely by his nose, I don't recall what his eye color was or his hair. So there is a lot of imagining you'll have to do when it comes to what the characters look like. Despite that I really enjoyed this book and fairy-tale, and recommend it if you like this genre.
I really couldn't out this down until I finished it. All the twists and turns of the plot were great! I loved that Princess Olive was such a great person but still had a few faults. I felt very sorry for Princess Rosaline, I guess the moral of the story had to be presented but I did wish she could evolve and become a better person. I especially loved the epilogue, it was a great way to pique the interest for the next book/story.
