Comments The Executioner's Daughter

  • Kristine

    As title would imply, story about an executioner's daughter and the horrors of her life around 1450. This YA historical fiction book was a short and quick read, and left many unanswered questions. But overall a pretty good book with a brief account of the life of executioners and what their families endure.


  • Tia

    There was nothing to this story. Everything that was mentioned in the summary happened, and that's it. It was very uneventful and not exciting at all. There was zero depth to the story.


  • Alexia

    "All Lily could remember when she got to the hill was looking up at the distant gallows and the roar of the crowd around her." In this historical fiction, Lily, the protagonist, was born into an executioner's family. Her caring mother, Allyce, guarded her from the horrors of Will, the town executioner and her uncaring father. While Allyce accompanies Will with everyday duties, Lily would linger around the forest and collect and gather herbs for the family's apothecary. She would most likely retr [...]

    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 wounde [...]

    Set in 1450, The Executioner's Daughter follows the life of a young girl, Lily, whose father is the town executioner.Lily and her family are outcasts, they cannot attend church or travel about the town without harsh treatment from the townspeople. They are also healers who make medicines and comfort the sick. This duality causes conflict for Lily who knows that her destiny is to become her father's assistant some day.The book was too short and ended just at the true story began in my opinion. St [...]


  • Heather

    Interesting but very short picture of what life was like for outcasts in the middle ages. The daughter of the town executioner is faced with the horror of what her father really does and she decides to escape the cycle that will doom her to take her mother's place helping him. Good, but a bit too brief.


  • Karie

    This book lacked depth. Williams was going for a "slice of life" story, but I think that in aiming it at younger readers, she left out the internal motivations that move a character forward. And she quit the story too soon, as well as leaving the backstory too sparsely told. Definitely not a high-impact book, in spite of the high-impact title.


  • DemonKitty003

    Its been forever since I have read this book. I almost forgot since I read it, I cried. I felt good after I read this book, because of it being the only book I have ever completed when I was in middle school.


  • Kari

    I liked this book a lottt!! I loved learning about medieval times. I didnt like thinking about the way people died but i guess that is sorta the point of the book.(look @ the title haha) The author was extremely descriptive and i could really relate to Lily.


  • Emma

    A decent quick read, considering there was only 130 pages for character development and plot. Decent characters and less than strong plot, but still interesting. Still annoying that there were so many unanswered questions at the end.


  • Renae

    Fair. But I wanted more at the ending.


  • Monica

    ok


  • Nance

    liked it, well written


  • Johnny Bennett

    The Executioner's Daughter is a tough book to rate. While it was well written, it was dark. It certainly isn't going to win any awards for feel good book of the year.


  • Mallory

    I read this book when I was probably around 10 years old. I remember laying on my bed, reading, and crying. It was a very emotional book for me and, to me, that means it was a good book.


  • Aerin

    well-written; not the level of Karen Cushman historic fiction, but definitely the same vein and worth checking out from the library for older elementary


  • Samantha

    Amazing book, it feels so real, I will most likely read it again. Very sad, although, it's in a good way in some of the book.


  • Miguel Flavorite

    really freaky (not in a good way)


  • Mindy pace

    It is a very sad but visual story of a girl treated badly. the girl loves animals. this is by far my favorite book i am not sure why but it is a must read.


  • Haley

    It was really good, but to sad to read more than once. Read it if you are feeling sad.


  • Krista the Krazy Kataloguer

    The daughter should not have to suffer because her father chooses to do an unpleasant job. Takes place in England in 1450.
