Summary
Failed father, failed husband, and failed scholar, Charles Hayden hopes to put his life back together with a new project: a biographty of Caedmon Hollow, the long-dead author of a legendary Victorian children's book, 'In the Night Wood', and forebear of his wife, Erin. Deep in mourning from a loss of their young daughter, they pack up their American lives, Erin gives up her legal practice, and the couple settles in Hollow's remote Yorkshire mansion. In the neighboring village, Charles meets a woman he might have loved, a child who could have been his own daughter, and the ghost of a self he hoped to bury. Erin, paralyzed by her grief, immerses herself in pills and painting images of a horned terror in the woods. In the primeval forest surrounding Caedmon Hollow's ancestral home, an ancient power is stirring, a long-forgotten king who haunts the Haydens' dreams. And every morning the fringe of darkling trees presses closer. Soon enough, Charles and Erin will venture in the night wood. Soon enough, they'll learn that the darkness under the trees is but a shadow of the darkness that waits inside us all.
