Im looking for a young adults book i read about 10 years ago and have forgotten the title. I think it had a red cover and the title was one word (which was the name of the main femail character).

It was about a girl who lived in a palace but was sent to this old lady in a little cottage to learn magic/healing.

she spends some time weaving a magic cloak with another apprentice girl in another house too.

i think it ends in her trying to save her friend from an evil sorceress type lady and i know she gets attaked by wolves and nearly killed.

if anyone has any idea it would be much appreciated as endless googling has come up with nothing!

This title is close on some counts, but may not be what you want: Scarlet Moon by Debbie Vigui�
Aaargh, I remember this book. She is sent to live with the healer for a year and a day. She makes a mistake with the magic cloak by dropping a stitch, and this is where a wolf (demon?) attacks her. She has to slaughter their pig.

Aaargh, don't remember the title though.

can you remember anything more about it that might help in a google search? its really bugging me as it was my fave book!
The plot doesn't ring any bells but I was wondering if it could be a book by Terry Pratchett?
No - but if you find out, will someone please let me know? Thanks.

I remember also there was a sequel to the book that followed her daughter which comes from a vision she has in the first book.

'Juniper' by Monica Furlong. Apparently it was actually written as a prequel to a trilogy called 'Wild Child.'

I love Google, I found it by searching for:

"young adult" book "year and a day" healer girl witch

and it was on the first page!
