    Treasure at the Heart of Tanglewood (ubcsfs)
    ubcsfs: Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood also features a female protagonist on a journey to find her identity. I feel that this novel had a more cohesive plot than Singer, while exploring similar themes.

I just read this book and already the details are slipping away. The author seemed to make up the plot as she went along, Characters come and go at random. While the main characters keeps repeating she misses having a mother's love, her final confrontation with her mother has no drama whatsoever. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142406503, Paperback)

For years, Gwenore’s mother, the witch Rhiamon, has abused and ignored her. Then Gwenore learns that she has secret allies—her nursemaid and a mysterious enchanter-priest. They help her escape, first to an abbey, then to the women’s community of Blessingwood, and finally to the otherworldly Lir, where she serves as nursemaid to the king’s four children. No matter where she goes, the young fugitive, now called Mary Singer, is pursued by Rhiamon—but she is also learning about her own magical powers. When she learns that Rhiamon has married King Lir, she is ready. Singer knows that her mother will try to kill the children. Now she must save their lives . . . and her own.
