The Six Swans - A Fairy Tale Retold

Princess Sydnee of Adalaide is silent. Not because of her own choice, but because she’s got six older brothers who want run the show and a father who’s busy being King and grieving over his late wife, Sydnee’s mother. When the King gets lost in the forest and sells his freedom for the marriage of Isabeth, the daughter of a witch (who’s potentially a witch herself), and a ball of magic cotton, he sends Sydnee and her brothers to the Cypress forest, hiding them from all harm. Until Isabeth shows up, that is, and curses the six boys. Sydnee will do whatever it takes to save her brothers, but is she willing to be controlled by the curse, and risk being alone forever?

It seems like a pretty good book though it does remind me of The Daughter of the Forest.

I like the idea of this. She can't speak for a year. That's a difficult challenge. I think it's all going to get very interesting in the next chapter.
