Everyone in Arnn - a small farming town with more legends than residents - knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.

After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.

Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.

To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.

How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?

My Review

Escape from Witchwood HollowEscape from Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek

Post 911 and the Twin Tower attack, a family relocates to the remote town, Arnn, for a fresh start. Orphaned and in the care of her aunt and uncle, Honoria is struggling with her new circumstances.

When the town’s witch story reaches Honoria, she wonders if this witch can reunite Honoria with her lost parents. You see, citizens of Arnn have been disappearing for years. Honoria is determined to uncover the secrets behind the woods that have claimed so many, in the hopes to reunite with her parents.

The time line jumps back and forth between past and present.

Escape from Witchwood Hollow was interesting and suspense filled but keeps children fiction readers in mind with its complexities.

The ending was quite shocking and definitely not what I anticipated.
