"Runaway, The"

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Stories will filter back to the neighbouring villages and towns, rumours of the girl who lives in the woods. Legends start with a kernel of truth, and mine will begin here.

Every teenager threatens to run away. Slamming her aunt's door, Rhiannon assumes someone from the village will spot her, will call her back. But no one comes.

Having reached Dyrys Wood, hurt drives her not to return. the woods will be her home. But how will she survive? Struggling in isolation against harsh conditions, Rhiannon's imagination takes flight. She lives in a world of stories - stories that Maebh, the village storyteller, has been telling Rhiannon since the death of her mother.

Back in the small Welsh village the fragile balance of community life begins to crack under the strain of Rhiannon's disappearance. A dark truth, suppressed for a generation, starts to surface. Maybe Maebh's stories are not just stories after all...
