Product description

Question: when does ‘vintage’ and ‘homespun’ not mean quilts and tea cosies? In this haunting tale of evil in wartime rural America. A tale of lies and truth and hard times. Of friendship, which counts most when it costs most. Of standing up for right – and getting it all wrong. Darkness, love and light. Annabelle has lived in Wolf Hollow all her life. It’s a quiet place, scarred by two world wars. But when cruel, tricksy Betty rocks up into town, the town’s calm world is violently smashed apart. Toby is a gentle loner: a traumatised ex-soldier. There’s no way he could have done anything bad. But now Betty has vanished – and everyone blames Toby. Can Annabelle save him?

  • A stunning debut novel about prejudice, bullying, friendship and justice
  • With powerful echoes of To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men
  • Incredible reviews confirm Lauren Wolk as a major new talent to watch
  • Thought-provoking, morally complex tale with a wonderful rustic setting

“Full of grace and stark, brutal beauty.” New York Times

“Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent.” The Times

“A powerful, beautifully written coming-of-age novel.” Daily Mail
