Review of The Tree Shepherd's Daughter by Gillian Summers


When her mother dies, fifteen-year-old Keelie Heartwood is forced to leave her beloved California to live with her nomadic father at a renaissance festival in Colorado. After arriving, Keelie finds men in tights and women in trailer trash-tight bodices roaming half-drunk, calling each other lady and lord even after closing time! Playacting the Dark Ages is an L.A. girl’s worst nightmare.
Keelie has a plan to ditch this medieval geekland ASAP, but while she plots, strange things start happening—eerie, yet familiar. When Keelie starts seeing fairies and communicating with trees, she uncovers a secret that links her to a community of elves. As Keelie tries to come to grips with her elfin roots, disaster strikes, and Keelie’s identity isn’t the only thing that’s threatened.
One part human determination and one part elfin magic, Keelie Heartwood is a witty new heroine in a world where fantasy and reality mix with extraordinary results.

                                                About The Tree Shepherd's Daughter 
Elves and redcaps abound in this fun fantasy read. Keelie Heartwood has had allergies to plants but soon finds that isn't all she has. The package comes with earth powers in being a Tree Shepherdess. Keelie is a very funny and care-free girl. Readers can find her ordinary outing interesting as they soon turn magical.  Has more of a earth-friendly feel in keeling with its paranormal element which are elves. Characters are well-written and an all around friendly read.  Felt myself become addicted to The Tree Shepherd's Daughter, Book 1, in the  series.

                                                 Overall: Amazing read!
                                               Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

A forest dweller, Gillian was raised by gypsies at a Renaissance Faire. She likes knitting, hot soup, costumes and adores oatmeal, especially in the form of cookies. She loathes concrete, but tolerates it if it means attending a science fiction convention.She can be found at her north Georgia cabin, where she lives with her large, friendly dogs, obnoxious cats, and an occasional fairy.
