Read full description of the books:



Set in the late nineteenth century in New Brunswick, The Heart of the Ancient Wood tells the tale of a mother and daughter who move to the woods to escape vicious gossip in the town. Despite the isolation they soon create a comfortable home for themselves and come to know the animals who live in the area. Years go by and Miranda becomes reacquainted with a young man that she knew when they were both children. Their potential romance is hindered by their conflicting philosophies about the natural world until one day when a terrifying encounter forces Miranda to question many of her ideals.

Excerpt:
Twice or thrice repeated under the round October moon, or the noise of some great wind roaring heavily in the remote tops of pine and birch and hemlock. Few and slender were the rays of sun that pierced down through those high tops. The air that washed the endless vistas of brown green shadow was of a marvellous clarity, not blurred by any stain of dust or vapour. Lts magical transparency was confusing to an eye not born and bred to it, making the far branches seem near, and the near twigs unreal, disturbing the accustomed perspective, and hinting of some elvish deception in familiar and apparent things.Excerpt from The Heart of the Ancient Wood
