Daphne and the Silver Ash
Rating: 4 out of 5
Summary: Daphne has a husband and a daughter named Violet. One day, Daphne takes Violet to visit the spirit of the Silver Ash Tree Bryn and she sings to Serafina the phoenix. A month later, when she returns to visit Bryn and Serafina, she finds that the Silver Ash Tree seems to be off and Serafina is refusing to be reborn because she just knows something is wrong with the tree. Because she wants to live, she transfers her spirit into Daphne which angers the village, as the phoenix and tree must be reborn so the town and the townsfolk can be reborn. However, a phoenix is not meant to live inside the body of a woman, so Daphne must try to avoid the angry towns people that want to capture her, and survive long enough to make things right.
My thoughts: I won a copy of this book from Library thing in exchange for an honest review.
I did like this tale. It was quite short, only 10 chapters long and was an easy ready. This would be a great bed time tale to read to your children as you're getting them ready for bed.
In my opinion, it would really show your children that regardless of the opinions of those around you, no matter what people tell you, you are still you and you still have the option to live your life the way you see fit, as in the best way for you. There is a bit of a peer pressure type feel to a bit of this story but it's only fleeting and Daphne quickly sees how she must do what is right because it truly is the best thing for her to do.
