Publisher Description

Annabelle has lived in Wolf Hollow all her life- a quiet place, still scarred by two world wars. But when cruel, manipulative Betty arrives in town, Annabelle's calm world is shattered, along with everything she's ever known about right and wrong.

When Betty accuses gentle loner Toby - a traumatised ex-soldier - of a terrible act, Annabelle knows he's innocent. Then Betty disappears . . .

Now Annabelle must protect Toby from the spiralling accusations and hysteria, until she can prove to Wolf Hollow what really happened to Betty.

Powerful, poignant and lyrical, Wolf Hollow is an unforgettable story.

Author Biography

After graduating from Brown University in 1981 with a degree in English literature, Lauren Wolk spent a year as a writer with the Battered Women's Project of the St. Paul American Indian Center, and then worked as both an editor and an English teacher. Since 2007, she has been the Associate Director of the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. She is an award-winning poet and also a visual artist. Wolf Hollow is set in western Pennsylvania where her family roots run deep. Both of her parents were raised in that area, her mother on a farm and in a family that served as the inspiration for the novel.

Review

A powerful, beautifully written coming-of-age novel . . . This emotionally intelligent, complex story deserves recognition and praise Daily Mail Haunting . . . With a precociously perceptive girl as a main character; a damaged, misunderstood recluse; and themes of prejudice and bigotry, comparisons to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will abound. But Wolk gives us her own story - one full of grace and stark, brutal beauty New York Times Suspenseful, wise, beautifully written and emotionally engaging Sunday Times Weaving together complex themes with extraordinary skill, debut author Lauren Wolk has created a book that deserves to be read . . . A timeless story, beautifully placed in an evocative and brilliantly realised historical setting Guardian Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent The Times
