“I met a man made of leaves with roots for hair, who looked at me with eyes that burnt like fire.”
An impenetrable forest that denies entry to all but a select few. A strange and isolated village, whose residents never leave.
A curse that reappears every generation, leaving death and despair in its wake.
What is lurking at the heart of the Forest? When the White Hind of legend is seen, the villagers know three of its young people will be left dead, victims of a triangle of love, murder and suicide.
This time Sally, Jack and Reuben have been selected, and it’s their turn to be tormented by long-buried jealousies aroused by the dark entity existing within its shadowy glades. Only by confronting the Forest’s secrets, can they hope to break the curse and change their destinies – if they have the courage.
Keeper of secrets. Taker of souls. Defender of innocence.
Existing on the very edge of believing, there is the Forest.
And this is its story…
~About the Author~
Julia Blake lives in the beautiful historical town of Bury St. Edmunds, deep in the heart of the county of Suffolk in the UK, with her daughter, one crazy cat and a succession of even crazier lodgers.
Julia leads a busy life, juggling working and family commitments with her writing, and has a strong internet presence, loving the close-knit and supportive community of fellow authors she has found on social media and promises there are plenty more books in the pipeline.
She’s been writing all her life, but only recently took herself seriously enough to consider being published. Her first novel, The Book of Eve, has met with worldwide critical acclaim, and since then, Julia has released the epic novel, Becoming Lili, a coming of age, ugly duckling tale. Eclairs for Tea and other stories, a delightful collection of short stories, flash fiction and quirky poems. Lost & Found, a punchy, fast-paced, romantic suspense. Fixtures & Fittings, its exciting and heart-warming sequel, and Erinsmore, a fantasy novel of dragons and quests in the style of Narnia. Her ecological sci-fi novella, Lifesong, is also causing a stir with its powerful, environmental message.
Julia says: “I write the kind of books I like to read myself, warm and engaging novels, with strong, three dimensional characters you can really connect with.”
