Book: The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis.
Synopsis: In the remote wilds of a ravaged land, Elka has been raised by a man who isn’t her father. Since finding her wandering in the woods when she was seven, he has taught her how to hunt, shoot, set snares and start fires–everything she needs to survive. All she knows of the world outside is gleaned from whispers of a cataclysmic event that turned the clock back on civilization by a hundred and fifty years and reduced governments and technology to shambles, leaving men at the mercy of the elements–and each other.
Everything changes when Elka learns that the man she has been calling father is harboring a terrible secret. Armed with nothing but her knife and her wiles, she decides to escape his clutches and sets out on a long journey to the frozen north in the hope of finding her long-lost parents.
But as the trail of blood and bodies grows in her path, Elka realizes that daddy won’t be letting his little girl go without a fight. If she’s going to survive, she’ll have to turn and confront not just him, but the truth about what he’s turned her into.

The ridge sloped nice and easy down to the flat and I kept that smoke in eye-line. It went out a’ my way, few miles west, but the promise of a good meal and warm fire, maybe news a’ my folks, was worth it.

I just got this book! I can’t wait to read it! How are you liking it so far?
I haven’t started it yet! Maybe tomorrow will be the day! 😀
Oh, yes, this one sounds good! Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “THE GIRLS OF AUGUST”
It sounds good but I am not sure I could handle it. Depends on how gory things get.
That looks really good. Here’s mine: https://coffeeandcatsblog.wordpress.com/2016/08/26/friday-56-9/
The conversations would drive me bananas in this one, but it still sounds good otherwise. 🙂
Wow. This sounds really good. And I’m curious if the world changing events are true or if he lied to keep her with him.
