There is something evil up Bergamot Holler, and it’s been targeting the Hall family for generations.
Patty Hall is fifteen years old. She loves stargazing, science fiction, and all things related to space exploration. This leaves her perfectly prepared for the wrong problem.
Patty is afraid her mother will send her to a care facility if she tells her what she’s seen. If she doesn’t figure things out soon, she’s going to join her father in the Hall family cemetery plot.
Patty has to come to grips with her own physical handicap, face the wilderness, and an ancient evil all alone if she’s going to survive.
Will O’ the Wisp is suitable for young adults. It involves elements of suspense, and is set in the mid 1970s.
My Review: I got into this story right away. It’s a wonderful 70’s coming of age tale with all that you would expect from a teenage sci-fi fanatic… And some! Well, maybe… And a helluva lot more would be more accurate.
Anyway, as I’m not one for spoilers or regurgitating the story suffice it to say, the story is well-written with strong memorable characters, especially, Patty who’s character tickled me no end of times, it is to put it simply, a great read.
