‘When all seems dark, where is your escape?’
Could it be as they say: the spirit in the woods brings retribution? Life in Thatchbury Village seems normal enough until the vanishing of Charlie Whitehall rekindles the myth surrounding Thickets Wood. As idle gossip spreads, lives are altered and innocence destroyed. Tommy Tinket, a twelve-year-old boy haunted by the past, finds himself torn between reality and the dark uncertainty of another dimension.
As the lines between sanity and delusion become blurred, we are introduced to a vulnerable young woman called Lily who is confined to a room, struggling with her memories. Forced into a world of make-believe, her mind becomes both her torturer and her key to freedom. Thickets Wood is a remarkably intriguing read: drawing the reader into it’s skilfully woven story, as it explores the fear and destruction caused by village folklore.
