What did you like most about Daughter of the Forest?

I read the book years ago and loved it and the audio book brought it all back to life again. I can't wait to start on the second book in the series. The characters are true and life like, the story is gripping and the narration did the book justice in every way.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't have a favourite character. I liked them all for different reasons.

Have you listened to any of Terry Donnelly’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No. But I will look for other books narrated by Terry Donnelly

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I was on a long flight it would be perfect! Unfortunately I don't have enough spare time to listen for so long but if I could, I would.
