A spiteful, mean, girl called Betty.
A caring, thoughtful, smart girl called Annabelle.
A man suffering the after effects of a war where he believed he’d done terrible things.
These are the key ingredients of this novel with a story that spirals from hatred and spite down through to forgiveness and love – but at what cost?
Wolf Hollow made me gasp, sigh, smile and wipe my eyes. Eleven year old Annabelle is brave, but no matter how many truths or lies she tells to try and help, things soon twist away from her again.
Shocking, beautiful and sad all at the same time.
