Summary
Joanne M Harris has written a beautiful and powerful stand-alone novella which springs from the page as a haunting, lyrical and utterly compelling modern fairy tale. Inspired by the Child Ballads, it's a superb tale of love, loss and revenge
Summary
I am as brown as brown can be, and my eyes as black as sloe; I am as brisk as brisk can be, and wild as forest doe: The Child Ballads, 295. So begins a beautiful tale of love, loss and revenge. Following the seasons, A Pocketful of Crows balances youth and age, wisdom and passion and draws on nature and folklore to weave a stunning modern mythology around a nameless wild girl. Only love could draw her into the world of named, tamed things. And it seems only revenge will be powerful enough to let her escape.
