Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver


This story haunts me, not because of ghosts nor demons, but because of Maud's tenacity in the face of cruelty. Set in a time so similar yet different from our own, it leaves you with a feeling of anger and dread as you watch Maud outsmart the men in charge of her life while her father descends into madness. I LOVED this book. - Paige
