"Within her eyes was the gratitude of the thousands of souls that knew him. He saw them. He saw the faces of the fae, the faces of the Wood. He heard their voices as they whispered in his ear of their thanks for what he had endured, for the sacrifices he had made. He felt in his being their emotions, those feelings that words could not describe. They were here because he loved without thinking.
They were here because he was loved.
The Woodcutter is a collection of almost every faery tale you heard as a child. The Woodcutter is beautifully written and takes the reader off to another world. I could easily picture the Woodcutter walking through the Wood and what he was seeing.
The Woodcutter is following in his father's footsteps just as his father did before him. He doesn't have an easy life and neither does his wife, who chose to stay by his side after she learned the truth about her husband. This is a story about one's destiny, about being selfless, and about not giving up hope.
The Woodcutter may not be a story for everyone but if you enjoy fantasy, true love, princesses, and happily ever afters than maybe this is a book for you.
