Everyone in Arnn – a small farming town with more legends than residents – knows the story of Witchwood Hollow: if you venture into the whispering forest, the witch will trap your soul among the shadowed trees.
After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.
Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.
To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.
How deep into Witchwood Hollow does Honoria dare venture?

Honoria walked to where weeds and ferns grew over the ditch. They seemed to wave her in as the wind stirred them. “So, I walk in and the witch grabs me?”
“And doesn’t let you out,” Harley added.
This book introduces you to Honoria. After losing her parents in the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, her aunt and uncle move with her and her brother to Arnn. Being a city girl, living in the country seems strange.
With Escape from Witchwood Hollow, Jordan Elizabeth has created three expertly woven plotlines; each thread gets you closer to the young women in their centuries. The story comprises a broad variety of believable and complex main characters with sufficient depth, nicely woven situations and interesting interactions kept me glued to my Kindle. I had an exciting time reading Escape from Witchwood Hollow – it is a very compelling read. I was drawn into the story right away, an invisible friend of Honoria, an invisible bystander in Elizabeth and Albertine’s plotlines. This is for you if you like determined teenagers and/or young women, suspense with great twists and local flair, urban fantasy, masterly combined plotlines.
A very suspenseful book to read again.
