Editorial Reviews

Review

''History and fairy tale are richly entwined in this spellbinding story. Unputdownable!'' --(Juliet Marillier, author of Daughter in the Forest)

''Like a fairytale, The Wild Girl gives us an explosive and evocative set of truths set within a deceptively simple and delicately written story.'' --(The Newtown Review of Books)

''Against an intricately-crafted tapestry of early nineteenth-century German daily life and tumultuous, tragic historical events, the story of star-crossed lovers Dortchen Wild and Wilhelm Grimm unfolds with a kind of dreamy, haunting precision.'' --(Sophie Masson, author of Moonshine and Ashes)

''Kate Forsyth is a storyteller whose books are spun out of magic and folklore. In all her stories there are princesses and wild forests, imagined terrors and real darkness, escapes to be made and arms to fall into. She is the ultimate giver of dreams, taking a fairytale and turning it around to provide even more possibilities.'' --(Readings (AU))

''I wholeheartedly recommend The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth ... her prose is effortless to read and her tales ultimately uplifting.'' --(Booklover Book Reviews (AU))

''Wonderful. Whether you love fairy tales or historical fiction or romance, there is something for you.'' --(January Magazine)

''This book captivated me from the very first scene. An historical novel with a lot of heart which will appeal to lovers of Austen and the Brontes as well as those in love with Kate Morton and Philippa Gregory.'' --(John Purcell, Booktopia)

''I wholeheartedly recommend THE WILD GIRL by Kate Forsyth ... her prose is effortless to read and her tales ultimately uplifting.'' --(Booklover Book Reviews (AU))

''[A] richly imagined tale of the girl who gave the Grimm brothers some of their best stories … Ultimately, this novel inhabits the ground between Philippa Gregory and Hilary Mantel. It is both entertaining and serious-minded, but it has about it too that little touch of magic that makes Kate Forsyth's voice so distinctive, so uniquely Kate. An absolute pleasure to read.'' --(Kim Wilkins, author of Angel of Ruin)

''THE WILD GIRL is in turns beautiful, deeply disturbing, evocative and of course, like any good fairy story romance, features a signature happy ending.'' --(InkAshling)

''Forsyth's skill as a storyteller makes the narrative a pleasure to read through, a joy of immersive reading.'' --(The Bookonaut)

''I recommend THE WILD GIRL for fans of fairy tales and fantasy primarily, but also to historical fiction reader and those interested in the early 1800s and the way life was lived then. Lovers of bittersweet romance will also enjoy the book.'' --(Storybook Perfect)

''An absolutely beautiful and much recommended read.'' --(Stephanie Gunn)

''Kate Forsyth's 'The Wild Girl' is a remarkable tale that beautifully blends fact and fiction. It is a sweeping historical romance that will appeal to both adults and young adults, as it reminds us the power of storytelling and loving, even in the hardest of times.'' --(Alpha Reader)

''This story is not just for historical and romantic fiction readers - those who love fairy tales will also find plenty to fascinate them here. It's certainly one of my favourite reads so far this year!'' --(The Oaken Bookcase)

''Whether you love fairy tales or historical fiction or romance, there is something for you in The Wild Girl.'' --(The Great Raven) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
