Summary
Olivia Harker Cross owns a mountain (or thinks she does) in Pope County, Kentucky. The wolves of Big Foley Mountain howl at night, but now someone is killing them. Olivia is beginning to realize how much of her own bitter history she has never understood -- her mother's madness or her daughter's flight to California leaving her to raise William, her beloved grandson. But most of all, Olivia doesn't understand her town's rage, for Olivia has very real and dangerous enemies. Now this proud, lonely woman will face her mother and daughter, her neighbors, and the wolf hunters. When she does, she'll ignite a conflict that will embroil an entire community, and change her life in the most astonishing ways.--B.I.P
Summary
Living behind Harker's Grocery with a young boy named Will'm in 1938 Kentucky, Olivia is stunned when members of the exclusive Hunt Club suddenly turn their sights on the two of them, a dangerous situation complicated by the return of Will'm's mother and the exposure of the Rowe Street community's horrifying secrets.
