“I write without a map. I never know what’s going to happen. I come up with the first line when I’m in the shower, almost always. When I notice patterns, I think, huh, I’ve done this before. There must be a reason why I’m doing it again. Let’s see where it goes. And if it goes somewhere interesting and different enough, I keep on, and if it feels like old hat, I stop and start again somewhere else. I once tried to write a book with a plan, and it was a bore to write. I’m sure it would have been a bore to read if anyone had ever read it. I’m intimidated by some of my writer friends who have a very good idea of where a book is going to end up.” Lauren Walk Talks With Roger
Sequel to Wolf Hollow.
Several months have passed since devastating events changed the sleepy community of Wolf Hollow forever.
Annabelle, still trying to make sense of her own part in them, is caught in a wild and sudden summer storm – and struck by lightning. She wakes with a memory: a fist, pounding on her heart, bringing her back to life. But there is no sign of whoever saved her, and Annabelle cannot understand who would do such a thing and then flee. To her surprise, Annabelle’s brush with lightning leaves her with a strange and beautiful gift: an uncanny connection with the animals around her, and an ability to understand their deepest fears and feelings. And when several newcomers arrive in her life – as well as a figure from the past – Annabelle must use her heightened senses to discover the truth about them all.
A stunning coming of age novel about forgiveness, friendship and our powerful connection with the natural world.
