“Uncle Clive was talking and crying in his sleep again.
‘Snowdrop,’ he sobbed. ‘…It’s waking up!'”
October 1979: Sent away from home after a mysterious incident at school, Daniel Edwards knows something is wrong the moment he arrives at his uncle’s house in Eversley. It’s not just the eerie deadness of the suburban streets – it’s Uncle Clive’s odd questions, the overwhelming dread Daniel feels when he looks at the tall oak trees in the garden, and the stranger at a railway station who insists she knows him.
He wanders the streets to escape from the house, and finds a large woodland in their midst – an ancient idyll, where he meets a beautiful young woman who pleads for his help.
Has Daniel been brought here for some reason he hasn’t been told? How real are his feelings for the girl? And why is Uncle Clive so interested in the incident that led to him being here in the first place?
The answers lie in the notebooks of Sylvia Critchlow, the local doctor in 1944, when Eversley was just a village, and something malevolent came to that remote community.
The Girl in Wildnerness Wood is a supernatural mystery, told between two time frames that overlap, to unravel the darkest of enigmas.
