DISCOVERING THE WOODSMAN BY N. M. BROTT REVIEW
Discovering the Woodsman is the first book in a trilogy by author N. M. Brott. The language is rather
old fashioned and reads like a 19th Century Novel and yet it does have a certain charm being a fairy
story. Our Tale starts where we are introduced to Heather the heroine and a description of the
cottage being at the edge of a forest. This reminded me of the Little Red Riding Hood Fairy tale.
Her Best Friend is Princess Malva.
Heather has a great liking for Woodcutters and although as a lady she was destined to be a
nobleman's wife she longed to belong to the woodcutters of her childhood tales.
Meeting Japser in the forest Heather falls in love but he isn't the type of man she should marry. I
don't want to give too much away and ruin the ending for people. It's a fairly pacey novel so and the
pace moves fairly quickly. The story does draw you in and you do want to know how it ended.
If you don't like the old fashioned style of writing then this book probably won't be for you but if you
love a good romance tale and a young girls hopes and dreams then you will enjoy the tale.
I would read the other books in the trilogy and to see what Heather gets up too.
I'd give it 4/5 stars
