'Harper Lee has a worthy successor. Wolk is a big new talent' The Times 'Lyrical, timeless . . . A luscious, shivery delight' Kirkus starred review 1933. When Ellie and her family lose everything, they flee to Echo Mountain to build a new life. Ellie runs wild, exploring the mountain's mysteries. But the one she can't solve is who's leaving the gifts for her: tiny, beautiful wooden carvings of animals and flowers, dotted around the mountain for her to find. Then Ellie's father has a terrible accident. Now he lies in a coma, while Ellie shoulders the blame for what happened. When she sets out to find a cure for him, she discovers Cate, the outcast witch, and Larkin, a wild mountain boy. From them she learns about being a healer, being brave - and about how there can be much more to a person than first meets the eye. An unforgettable novel from the award-winning author of Wolf Hollow and Beyond the Bright Sea. 'It is a magical thing to step into a world created by Wolk . . . Captivating' Booklist starred review 'Historical fiction at its finest' The Horn Book starred review
