Her books have been published in over twelve countries/languages, and her novels The Wicked Deep, Winterwood, and A History of Wild Places were Indie Next Picks. She lives in a small mountain town in Oregon, and is happiest when lost in a good book, lost in the woods, or writing her next novel.



This one really gripped me and wouldn't let go until I finished. It wasn't the plot twists or reveals that made it interesting, though those were fun and I definitely enjoyed them. I think the draw was in the character work and the themes going on here. It was a more quiet, meditative book on chosen community, a sense of self, and how we let fear and loss define us. And I was so pleased by the ending, even though I wasn't expecting it, that I can't give this one any less than 5 stars.

When the newborn baby of a commune member becomes ill, everything begins to unravel, as some think outside help is necessary and others are dead-set against it. Ugly secrets and lies turn the once-tranquil Pastoral into a nightmare. With their belief systems challenged, Calla, Bee, and Theo are forced to make difficult decisions.

Absolutely loved this book, Thrilling, confusing and exciting. Tried my hand at solving the mystery but was caught off guard by the twist. Really kick-started my venture into psychological thrillers.

This book was so good! I've always wondered about the different trees in the grove and what all the different holiday worlds looked like. I also loved this Sally, she really grew into herself.

Now I want more books set here!
