Solstice Wood review

Solstice Wood - Patricia A. McKillip

Patricia McKillip is a wonderful writer who I wish was better known. She's a magician with characterization and a good storyteller to boot. I found this in the YA section and it's suitable for the kids and adults too. A young woman is drawn back to the hometown she dosen't want to go home to, and discovers the family secret, which involves witchcraft and the fairy folk. McKillip keeps the story moving at a brisk pace and it's over before you know it, leaving you wanting more.
