Echo Mountain

By Lauren Wolk

Snappy Review

Beautifully written for both adults and children, this is a remarkable tale of adversity and hope. Imagination, ingenuity, and life.

Synopsis

The stunning new novel from the critically acclaimed author of Wolf Hollow.

1933. When Ellie and her family lose everything, they flee to Echo Mountain to build a new life. Ellie runs wild, exploring the mountain’s mysteries. But the one she can’t solve is who’s leaving the gifts for her: tiny, beautiful wooden carvings of animals and flowers, dotted around the mountain for her to find.

Then Ellie’s father has a terrible accident. Now he lies in a coma, while Ellie shoulders the blame for what happened. When she sets out to find a cure for him, she discovers Cate, the outcast witch, and Larkin, a wild mountain boy. From them she learns about being a healer, being brave – and about how there can be much more to a person than first meets the eye.A beautiful and unforgettable novel from the award-winning author of Wolf Hollow and Beyond the Bright Sea.
