All the fairy tales warn children of going into the woods alone. Nothing good ever comes out of it. "What Should Be Wild" has the eerie quality of all those lovely Grimm fairy tales and an off kilter feel to it. A child is born, the mother dies leaving the father to raise her alone in the old secluded family home. He keeps her and her secret hidden so her only companions are her dad and the housekeeper.
Her touch can kill and a retouch can bring back life. Maisie hungers for the touch of another human - a hug from her father and later, the same from the young man who will help her. Meanwhile, deep in the hidden realm of the wood, all the women in Maisie's family exist waiting to be freed. Classic Gothic fairy tale blended with a fantasy world that borders on horror and a mysterious curse. Beware your next walk in the woods alone.
I love to read good books and share the new books that are available and those that are coming soon
