One day as Daphne sings to her infant daughter under the silver ash tree that is the center and health of her town the Phoenix, Seraphina, flies down to listen, Every hundred years the phoenix is reborn in the branches of the ash tree and the ciry is restored to splendor. This year Seraphina does not want to be be reborn in the tree and hides her spirit in Daphne who is forced to flee from the towns people who think she has stollen the great birds spirit. Now Daphne must figure out how to remove the spirit and save her town as well as herself. Nicely done and not a bad way to spend an afternoon in the sun.

Review by: Crystal Waldrum on Nov. 20, 2011 :
A beautiful story that held me captive. It was a short story but filled with mythology that I treasure, and a love between husband, wife and child that is ages old. A story of power and sacrifice. I loved it an there is no one that I would not recommend this story too. If condensed this would me a wonderful bedtime story for my little one.
