An animal-loving kid displaced by the war.
An unlikely ally among the trees.
A heart-stopping secret threatening to poison her life.
1940. Harriet Hall is desperate for a friend. Evacuated from London with her ailing mother and sent to live with her unruly Canadian relatives, the independent twelve-year-old is tired of the turmoil. And with her cousins driving her crazy, her mom’s latest hurried trip to the hospital is enough to send the lonely girl running into the forbidden forest… and straight into a sympathetic sasquatch.
Ecstatic to finally have a companion, Harriet is overwhelmed when the creature shows her a cabin where her parent’s doctor conducts strange experiments. And revealing the truth to save her sickly mother means putting herself in harm’s way.
Can Harriet and her wild ally defeat the evil adult before it’s too late?
