Everyone in Arnn - a small farming town with more legends than residents - knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.
After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.
Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.
To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.
How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?

In this mysterious YA Fantasy story, three young women from completely different eras, experiencing loneliness and secrets, find their way to a common place. Unfortunately for them, it is the haunted forest of Witchwood Hollow, where people can enter the perpetual darkness of the woods, but cannot find a way to leave. Spooky and creepy. Folklore from as early as the 1600’s states: If you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.
In 2001, 15-yr-old Honoria, with her brother’s help, tries to focus on the world in front of her, after her parents are killed in the World Trade Center Disaster; in 1850, Albertine Slack, a young woman is in search of a new life on the American Frontier and in 1670, Lady Elizabeth Clifford has bolted from her town, after being accused of using witchcraft to kill her brother-in-law.
The witch with the attitude holds all the answers… or does she? Are they destined to stay in the forest forever? Or is there a way out? This story is full of unique characters dealing with love, loss and hardships... but above all else, there are puzzles that need to be solved and secrets that need to be revealed. Can Honoria figure out what the witch is hiding?
(because I love a good mysterious fantasy that makes me wonder what is true and what is not, I love to read about witchcraft and haunted forests and I love a great twist at the end of the book).
