Summary

I am as brown as brown can be,
And my eyes as black as sloe;
I am as brisk as brisk can be,
And wild as forest doe.

(The Child Ballads, 295)

So begins a beautiful tale of love, loss and revenge. Following the seasons, A Pocketful of Crows balances youth and age, wisdom and passion, and draws on nature and folklore to weave a stunning modern mythology around a nameless wild girl.

Only love could draw her into the world of named, tamed things. And it seems only revenge will be powerful enough to let her escape.

This is a stunning and original modern fairy tale.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Beautifully Written

This is a richly layered fairytale that walks you through seasons and superstitions, leaving you a wild thing with twigs in your hair and berry-stained fingers.
