Summary

In a dark, dark wood

In summer 1990, Caroline and Joanna are sent to stay with their great-aunt, Dora, to spend their holidays in a sunlit village near the Forest of Dean. The countryside is a welcome change from the trauma they know back home in the city - a chance to make the world a joyful playground again. But in the shadowy woods at the edge of the forest hide secrets that will bring their innocence to a distressing end and make this a summer they will never forget.

There was a dark, dark house

Years later, a shocking act of violence sends Joanna back to Witchwood. In her great-aunt's lonely and dilapidated cottage, she will attempt to unearth the secrets of that terrifying summer and come to terms with the haunting effects it has left on her life. But in her quest to find answers, whom can she trust? And will she be able to survive the impending danger from those trying to bury the truth?

Great narrator, good story worth a credit.

Warning violence against children is implied, though not graphic. Enjoyed the character development & development of a sense of place. Overall found it interesting but very sad story.
Will be looking for more of Karen Cass’ narration & Rebecca Griffiths novels.
