Title: Escape from Witchwood Hollow
Author: Jordan Elizabeth
Narrator: Amanda Stribling
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, 15-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?
Honoria and her brother had to move after the loss of their parents in the twin tower attacks. As they get adjusted to their new town, they become familiar with the legend of the Witchwood Hollow. In an alternate timeline, we’re introduced to the witch and her victims.
I have very quickly become a fan of Jordan Elizabeth’s works. This is my fourth read by her, and I haven’t been disappointed yet. Like her other works, her characters are full fleshed out with believable backstories and wonderful relationships. Worldbuilding is always thorough and there’s plenty of suspense.
This book had something the others hadn’t so far, a time period jump of centuries between the two major timelines. Jordan did a fantastic job of outlining life in the old times as well as managing the story of the characters in the present time. While I was listening, I wasn’t sure how the two timelines would eventually converge but the author did not disappoint.
Another five star listen!
Narration was perfect.
