Darkness falls so quickly in Howland that the people there have no word for evening. But for 13-year-old Annie, the dark is almost soothing compared to the misery of her cruel aunt and uncle's house. When Annie finally escapes, she finds herself on a journey that will take her deep into the forest - where fearsome creatures lurk - and to the glittering halls of a palace.
Hints of the Brothers Grimm add magic to this spellbinding and beautifully told story.
