The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Title:  The Bear and the Nightingale

Author: Katherine Arden


This is the tale of Vasilisa, who took her first breath, as her Mother took her last. A child born to magic like her Mother and her Grandmother. Raised by her nanny Dunya who is filled with stories of the old ways, Vasilisa becomes a child of the forest. She speaks to trees, animals, and the spirits of the earth and home. It is in the forest Vasilisa first meets the man with one eye, and her life changes forever.

The Bear and the Nightingale is beautifully written Russian fairy tale and I highly recommend it.
