She lay aside her basket to help her mother with the dough. Well enough, Allyce said, brushing a strand of hair from her face with the back of her floury hand.

Lily is an adolescent living in the Middle Ages, when justice was often very cruel. Her father is the town's executioner, which means he is the one to dole out all of the punishment. Sometimes he has to hang people, sometimes he cuts off their hands or their heads. It is not a pleasant job, and it means that the entire town despises him and is afraid of him. His wife and daughter live with him outside the town walls. On the side, they collect and mix herbs for healing, and often when people from town can't find anyone else to heal them, they come to the executioner's wife for the help they need.

Lily loves the idea of healing. She does her best to learn all about the herbs her mother and father mix for their medicines, and when she finds hurt animals she brings them home to heal them herself. She is shielded from the work of her father because her mother acts as his assistant and keeps Lily away from his job.

Then one day Lily's mother gets very sick with a fever Lily and her father can't fix. When Lily's mother dies, Lily's life changes. Suddenly she is expected to be her father's assistant, but how can she help him to kill when she wants to dedicate her life to healing?

I liked learning the history of a Medieval family, especially one as unusual as an executioner's family. I liked that Lily was portrayed as a very strong character, although as a female living when she was living, I don't know if it was realistic to think that she would really have had the opportunities to heal she thought she would. I felt the ending was unresolved and left me hanging a bit.

This was a great youth book. Easy to read. The author knows how to draw you into the story. A good historical fiction book for any young tween age girl.

The Executioner's Daughter

The title of the book I was reading is The Executioner's daughter. The author of the book I was reading is The Executioner's Daughter. The author of the book I am reading is Laura e. Williams. I really enjoy this book when I was reading it. In the book one of all the characters that I like, there is one I really like most. The character is Lily; I like her because she relates a lot to me. That is one3 of the reasons I choose this book to read. I really like this book because some parts are like if they were written for me to listen to. Lily's life is rough with her parents, and the thing that makes her cheerful is her animals and that relates to me a lot like my life. There is actually nothing I dislike about this book, everything was so incredible to read, well there is this part I kind of do not like, I wish Lily's life could be a little bit easier, I mean, because she is still a kid to have those big problems with her parents. My strongest reason to recommend this book to somebody is that they would like it like I like it. Not only that if you like a book that there is a character that does not give up to cheer somebody up, until they meet their goal. This book is right for you. I hope you will enjoy this book like I enjoy it. Have fun reading this book. Trust me I am telling you the truth, you would enjoy it.

I enjoy books about medieval Europe, so I began this book with optimism. However, it was a bit too gruesome for me and it didn't seem very well researched. on the other hand, Lily is a sympathetic character that one grows to like. But over all, this book didn't measure up to other historical novels, like those of Karen Cushman, which give a better sense of the Middle Ages.

This novel was built upon the fact that during the Middle Ages, executioners and their families were shunned, forced to live outside the village walls and forbidden to attend church and social gatherings. Thirteen-year-old Lily, the fictional main character, is cursed from the moment she was born - her father is the village executioner. But because her mother is the one to assist her father in his duties, Lily keeps to herself in the forrest near their cottage, gathering herbs and healing wounded animals, and taking comfort in her mother when her father distances himself from them. Lily loses that one comfort when her mother sickens and dies. Now Lily is doomed to be her father's assistant at executions. A gentle, quiet girl, Lily cannot bear to see an animal in pain - she doesn't know how she can ever watch executions. But Lily won't resign herself to the fate assigned to her. This was an excellant historical novel that brought the time and place of England in the 1400s, gruesome details and all, to life. It was inspiring to read a story about a young girl who chose to fight her place in life in a time when most people were forced to accept whatever their circumstances in life turned out to be, whether they liked them or not. I highly reccomend this novel to fans of historical novels ages twelve and up (the more gruesome details might disturb younger readers).
