I loved this book. It tells the story of two sisters, Hannah and Molly, through Molly's first person narrative. Their mother died suddenly and their father has gone completely to pieces, dumping them with his aged parents, far from home, while he tries to rebuild his life and mourn his wife. Molly is confused and hurt by his reaction and her sister's anger at everyone. She struggles fitting in to her new community, and one night, when Hannah's latest rage sends them running into the darkness, away from 'home', she loses her sister and comes across an injured man in the lane. The man is set upon by a wild hunt led by a horned man, and Molly is thrown into a world where she balances the supernatural against the every day life of living without her mum, and trying to come to terms with both, all set against the turning of the year. The way I have described the story doesn't really do it justice. It is much more simple and powerful to actually read it. It is beautifully written, and very engaging. I thought the way it dealt with bereavement was novel, and effective. Highly recommended.
