About: Eighteen year old Izzy’s limited world begins to feel cramped after she completes her self-appointed book dare. After reading two-hundred and fifty books, a thought that had been once tucked away as tightly as the books on her library shelves becomes too irresistible to ignore…”Who am I?”
Memory loss prohibits Izzy from remembering her life before age seven when she was injured in a fire. Jonathan Gudwyne and his head housekeeper rescued her and took Izzy in as their own, but who did she belong to before they took her in?
Crippling panic keeps Izzy from wandering beyond the stables but Tubs, the Gudwyne’s young stable boy, encourages Izzy to go beyond the property’s rock wall to a world that promises possible answers, but also great danger. A scorched castle in the woods and a mysterious cellar filled with secrets sets Izzy on a path to the New World, where she will not only have to face her own terror but face the people responsible for her scars.
It is here, in the untamed wilds of the seventeenth century that she finds love and a home in the most unexpected of places.
Genre: Historical Fiction.
My Rating: 3 and 1/2 Stars.
Recommendation: 13 and up.
My favorite character is: Izzy is weak at first but I think she grew up well through the book. She still had some growing up to do, but in the end I liked her a lot. I liked how she forgave the people that hurt her.
My Verse for Izzy is Psalm 27:1
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord
is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? KJV (King James Version)
I wasn’t sure how to rate White Wolf and the Ash Princess because it was different from most books I read, in the way they go to “the New World” but I thought it was well written, and I liked it.
I received this book in return for my honest review; All of the thought are my own.
