The Wood Wife by Terri Windling

Staff Pick

Maggie, a lapsed-poet-turned-LA-journalist, inherits her poetry mentor's house after his mysterious death and, while going through his papers, library, and getting to know his community, soon comes to love her new rural Tuscon home. She also stumbles into some cryptic doings surrounding her benefactor's final project. In this rare fantasy that engages meaningfully and gracefully with American landscapes, Windling weaves a spellbinding, beautiful book filled to the brim with poetry, art, and meditations on how the arts affect the magics of the world and our souls, and also considers how our collective conversations through art can lead us back to harmony with both the natural world and each other.
