Willa of the Wood

Written by Robert Beatty
Book 1 of 2 in Willa of the Wood series

Hey Bookmonsters!
My book review today is on a captivating tale that fast became one of my new favourites. In fact, even the book cover has become one of my all-time favourites! It’s on Robert Beatty’s Willa of the Wood, an exciting adventure set in the Great Smoky Mountains at the beginning of the twentieth century, in a land where the Cherokee and Faeran (magical wood dwellers) live in harmony with nature. But settlers and loggers are threatening their peaceful existence, and Willa – a young Faeran night spirit – finds herself caught up in the middle of the struggle. A beautifully told tale that whisks you away into the magical world of the Faeran and gives you a unique glimpse of how nature works. Perfect for anyone with a strong love of the natural world, young or old. (Be sure to watch the video to the end to see the really cute drum roll!) So looking forward to reading and reviewing the next book in the series, Willa of Dark Hollow. 🙂
