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, fifteen-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?


I received this book to give an honest review.

So anyone who knows me I am not big on historical or time travel books I will give them a try but sometimes they just don't call out to me.
Well this one I was very impressed with the story being told. 
We go between the present with a girl named Honoria who has moved to Arnn a very small town. Then we got to past where all of the legend of Witchwood Hollow started with Lady Clifford, to later on where we meet Albertine. 
All of it comes together nicely and those that live in the present in Arnn carry something with them from the past. I really did enjoy how it all was connected in some way and it worked out perfectly. 
It is said that those that travel into the Hollow never return is this true? Why does it happen? What happens to those that are in the Hollow? Well you read and find out. I really liked how we were told a bit of history about the town and how Honoria and Leon both enjoyed finding cool objects on the land.
There is some language but nothing too bad so I recommend this for teens but maybe for the ages 16 on up.
