I read this book a few months ago but I so thoroughly enjoyed it, I want to post my review here. This is a must read, for sure!
Libbie Hawker is now one of my most favorite authors.
Review for Tidewater
This haunting tale of the life of Pocahontas will stay with you for a long time to come.
Tidewater is skillfully written and expertly researched. Hawker is a master at gently weaving beautiful prose into an elaborate, sweeping tapestry of a compelling story. You, as the reader, are transported to 17th century Virginia and you get to immerse yourself into the rich, bold lives of Pocahontas and her family and the hard choices that she ultimately has to make.
Libbie Hawker is one of those writers that can capture you from the first few words of a book and hold your attention and loyalty until the end…then you desperately go looking for her next book to read. Her prose is so lyrical and poetic, her words almost read themselves, giving you bright, deep worlds that you luxuriate to live in for a while.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves an exceptional story. Especially a story with a strong female character.

I just finished Juliet Marillier’s Den of Wolves. I have been a huge fan of Marillier’s for a while now. I just love her style of writing and re-telling of Celtic myths. She has such a natural flow to her stories and they truly are a treasure to read. Here is my review and a link to buy her book.
Book Review for Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier
An exceptionally well-written, spell-binding journey through myth and fairy tales
Den of Wolves is the third (and last?) in Juliet Marillier’s Blackthorn and Grim series. The first two books are Dreamers Pool and Tower of Thorns.
Like all Marillier’s books, Den of Wolves is exceptionally well written, evocative, and has an interesting story that pulls you in. In this book, Blackthorn and Grim help a young girl who has some strange abilities and a tedious home life. Together, they help this girl gain self-confidence and discover things about herself and her past that change her life forever. Things also change for Blackthorn and Grim!
The story arc finally comes to an end in this third book of the series but the end of the story leaves tantalizing openings for much more to happen in Blackthorn and Grim’s world. I, for one, hope Marillier continues to write more in this great series.
If you haven’t given Juliet Marillier a try I highly recommend starting today! You won’t be disappointed. If you love Irish myths, retold tales, or anything Celtic, you must read Juliet Marillier and you will be an instant fan!
