I can't believe it. I pulled up this book on Goodreads to steal the cover image, and discovered I'd reviewed it last year -- well before I started Rursday Reads. So! An easy week for me!
Here's what I wrote last year:
really, really liked this book. All the children of a small village
are killed at once; the village's witch takes pity on the parents and
creates a new girl child from bits and pieces of all of their children.
The poppet is brought to life, but the witch is killed, and the girl --
Elizabeth -- finds out years later that the witch was unable to finish
her before she died.
The poppet strikes out on her own. In a
magical forest, she meets a were-man -- a human man who has been turned
into a wolf, except for the three days around each full moon when he
becomes human again. His fondest wish is to end the curse so that he
can go back to his own village and marry his sweetheart. The pair go
through many adventures before they each find their happy ending.
