Wild Wood

Wild Wood

By Posie Graeme-Evans.

Jesse Marley calls herself a realist; she’s all about the here and now. But in the month before Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981 all her certainties are blown aside by events she cannot control.

First she finds out she’s adopted. Then she’s run down by a motor bike. In a London hospital, unable to speak, she must use her left hand to write. But Jesse’s right-handed. And as if her fingers have a will of their own, she begins to draw places she’s never been, people from another time—a castle, a man in armour and a woman’s face.

Rory Brandon, Jesse’s neurologist, is intrigued. Maybe his patient’s head trauma has brought out latent abilities. But there’s something else. He knows the castle. He’s been there.

Rory takes Jesse to Hundredfield. Built by a brutal Norman warlord a thousand years ago to subdue the Scottish Borderlands, the castle has been passed down within the noble Dieudonné family. In the fourteenth century his descendants are the guardians of this savage country, trapped by duty to keep the peace between England and Scotland.

Posie Graeme-Evans, Australia’s most beloved storyteller, returns with a sweeping time-slip tale that will enchant readers who enjoy great stories.
