Escape from Witchwood Hollow by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek
Add to Goodreads
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?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
This story was interesting and intriguing. It was over all, a good story and a story I’d read again. I thought the descriptions were well written and made it easy to picture what was going on. Stepping back and looking at the story as a whole, it’s very well written.
It felt like there was SO much going on in this story. At times it was hard to follow all of it and keep up with it. At times it made the story confusing. This was probably my only complaint in it but it felt kind of like a big deal as I was reading I felt myself becoming puzzled and then spent more time trying to figure out what was going on.
