Publisher's Description 
In her third book about the delightful Woodcutter sisters, Alethea Kontis masterfully weaves "The Wild Swans," "The Goose Girl," and a few other fine-feathered fairy tales into a magical, romantic companion novel to Enchanted and Hero.

Readers met the Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) in Enchanted and Hero. In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday's palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he's her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday's unique magic somehow break the spell? 

Book received:  Rented 

Why I Picked it up: It was free book. I had hope fro a good re telling of a beloved fairy tale. Her writing style is strong. The editing. Ugh. it was just awful. The same as the first book. Great idea but very confusing and poorly edited. This is third book and nothing has changed in the editing. of the book. There is information that the reader dose not need to know or see but and could be explained later and in a better manner. I am underwhelmed. I am please this book was free to read. .

Why I finished it: I did not finish it. 

Who I would give it to:This book did not live up to expectations.
