The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest and Love
Odette’s pastime is hunting in the deep forest and the fear of losing this creativity and the ability to help the poor keep her firmly awake.
Odette and Jorgen (the two main characters); are torn between Love and their jobs. Jorgen is in charge of the upkeep of the Mangrove, while Odette is the “Thief” who poaches animals from Mangrove to feed the poor.
Being married off to a wealthy man would have been the best decision for Odette; but the thoughts of leaving the vulnerable poor to themselves.
Odette has a very good and understanding Uncle; who has always asked her thoughts about marriage; unlike other men who would have married her off to the most available rich man that comes his way.
The more her Uncle Rutger tries to arrange his wealthy friends for her, the more Odette sees their ugly side.
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is unique in its way; it’s targeted towards Young Adults and Adults alike.
The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest is very interesting; and also enlightening, as it shows a mix of the Author’s love for medieval fairy tales.
