9780143025153: Dreamforest

Karoliena Kapp is a child of the forest, born into a community of woodcutters. But fate singles her out to be different. Bright and beautiful, she knows and understands the forest in all its moods. She is given the advantage of a good education, but it serves only to heighten her growing realisation that, because of the harsh injustices of poverty, there is little hope for the woodcutters. Her beauty and intelligence attract the attention of Johannes, himself of woodcutter stock, but now a respected and successful businessman in the village. Just before she turns twenty she marries him and moves to the village. The day after her marriage she realises that she has made the wrong choice. She may have escaped from the poverty of the forest, but she has exchanged her freedom for a cage. Alone and afraid, she leaves her husband and takes the road back to the forest, where she will have to find her own life's purpose.
