The author of the bestseller The Lost Garden returns with a luminous novel of intertwining stories that meet in a haunting, moving climax.

Each evening at dusk, six people gather at the edge of the woods, calling their dogs to come back to them, dogs that have turned wild and vanished from their lives. Drawn together by need, the group forms its own small community—until violence strikes unexpectedly.

Humphreys’ graceful writing, her superb eye for detail, her sensitivity and intelligence combine to produce an unforgettable story about the wild in all of us.
