Description

When newscaster Abby Waite is diagnosed with a potentially terminal illness, she decides to do the logical thing... break her twin sister Martha out of prison and hit the road. Their destination is the Waite family cabin in Minnesota where Abby plans a family reunion of sorts. But when you come from a family where your grandfather frequently took control of your body during your youth, where your mother tried to inhabit your mind and suck your youthful energies out of you, and where so many dark secrets--and bodies, even--are buried, such a family meeting promises to be nothing short of complicated...

Review quote

"At once sly and grim, soberingly real and darkly fantastical, the story of the Waite sisters will haunt readers like an eerie old folk song." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"In this uncanny world, the darkest moments don't come from the supernatural horror but from the realization that the Waites' underlying dysfunction is a near and dear part of our own." --Foreword Reviews (starred review)

"A Hawk in the Woods is wonderfully dark and spellbinding, mixing the road novel, family drama, time travel, cosmic horror, and maybe even a little Heathers. Carrie Laben is an original, compelling new voice. Consider me a fan for life." --Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts

"Ride or die sisterhood, conjured from the bones of H. P. Lovecraft." --Molly Tanzer, author of Vermilion and Creatures of Will & Temper

"Carrie Laben is a monster--they don't even make writers like this anymore. You will be reading her name for decades to come." --Cara Hoffman, Author of Running and So Much Pretty
