This is by the author of I Am Legend.
It is 1918 and a young American soldier injured in the "Great War' has come to a pastoral village that seems perfect to heal his wounded body and soul. The woods are rumored to be haunted by spirits, but they were just fairy tales, weren't they?
Matheson has a beautifully written fantasy- romance with a touch of horror so plausible and involving that I couldn’t put it down. Not only does it have something for everyone but I find myself planning to hunt for more. This is a master voice with sixty years of practice. Fantasy lovers will love this book and need to collect the author's work once you discover him. ~~ Pam Allan
