Set in the Great Smoky Mountains in 1900, WILLA OF THE WOOD is filled with the history, mystery, and magic of the region. The story follows an orphaned 12-year-old girl who is one of the last members of an ancient race of forest people in tune with the trees and animals. Willa spends her days and nights foraging from the forest and scavenging from the log cabins of her greatest enemies, the axe-wielding “newcomers.” Through a series of action-packed encounters and an unexpected kindness, Willa begins to realize that both the newcomers and her own people are not what she’s always been told, setting in motion her quest for a new home and a new sense of belonging in a changing world.
