The Wolves of Willoughby Chase

by Joan Aiken (Jonathan Cape, 1962)

Aiken_Wolves Willoughby Chase

Set in an alternative, wolf-plagued 19th-Century England, this first book of Aiken’s Wolves Chronicles captures both the stark, chill beauty of the countryside and the wanton cruelties suffered by orphans of the time. A bleak—almost Dickensian!—yet happily ending quest fantasy.
