5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising, 13 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Pollard (Paperback)
I haven't quite finished reading this book, but it is so wonderful I can't wait to tell the world about it. It is profound, lyrical, enthralling, and makes all the other books I've read lately seem scratchy and clamorous.

The story slowly unfurls in the depths of a wood, following the turn of the seasons. The plot seems to put down roots into the reader and one is caught up in the life of a young outsider, Anne, as she finds ways to survive outside of, but still connected to, the norms of society. She is one of the most sensitive, engaging and thought-provoking characters I've met, and, like other reviewers, I continue to think of her when I'm going about my daily life.

This book raises so many questions - on a general level, but also forcing one to challenge ones own perceptions and ways of being. For me, those concerning homelessness and abnormality in particular.

It is astonishing to realise that this book has such a small profile, and sad to think that so many people are denied its insights and poetry. I count myself so lucky to have found it and consider it immediately to be in the list of my top 5 books.
