Re: The Wild Swans
- I've described the book as something of a combination of Jane Yolen's _Briar
Rose_ with Pat Wrede's _Snow White and Red Rose_, without roses; trying to
describe the form--I might also have mentioned Faulkner's _The Wild Palms_, or
perhaps Garner's _Red Shift_, but that probably implies a more ambitious form
than it actually contains.
If you'd like to check out some actual reviews, there are some links from the
Peg Kerr web-page that I maintain at
and some of these have been fantastic raves.
