Summary of the Book:

When a swan crashes through her window at the height of a winter storm, journalist Mitzi Fairweather decides to nurse the injured bird back to health. But at sunset, the swan becomes a woman.

This unexpected visitor is Odette, the swan princess – alone, adrift and in danger in 21st-century Britain, entirely dependent on the kindness of strangers. Bird by day, human by night, and with no way to go home, she remains convinced, to Mitzi’s distress, that only a man’s vow of eternal love can break her spell.

Mitzi is determined to help Odette, but as the two try to hide the improbable truth, their web of deception grows increasingly tangled. Can they find a way to save Odette before it’s too late?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have always had a love for fairytales from all over the world and this books is a modern retelling of the Swan Princess. It is just as enjoyable the original tale. This version to me seems great for the modern times. It is one of those books I would most likely go back and read it again.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
