Booklist Review

Woodsinger is the title bestowed on those chosen by the Great Tree to sing to it the events of the day among the people of Headland of Slaughter for safekeeping. The Tree, guardian of the people and keeper of their history and wisdom, guides and protects them with its understanding of the past and the magic of the earth. Being the Woodsinger is a great responsibility, and though chosen, Alana often feels unprepared and unworthy. When tragedy strikes the village, and two children are stolen during a seasonal celebration, she is called upon to grow in her knowledge of the Tree faster than she feels she is ready to. But only her willingness to delve deeply in the Tree's magic--indeed, to risk losing herself in the Tree completely to gain its secrets--can save the lost children and the small company of villagers sent to rescue them. A fine story of magic and adventure, this is a wonderful coming-of-age tale, too, as Alana grows into womanhood and magehood. --Paula Luedtke
