From New York Times bestselling author of The Wicked Deep comes a haunting romance perfect for fans of Practical Magic , where dark fairy tales and enchanted folklore collide after a boy, believed to be missing, emerges from the magical woods--and falls in love with the witch determined to unravel his secrets.

Be careful of the dark, dark wood...

Especially the woods surrounding the town of Fir Haven. Some say these woods are magical. Haunted, even.

Rumored to be a witch, only Nora Walker knows the truth. She and the Walker women before her have always shared a special connection with the woods. And it's this special connection that leads Nora to Oliver Huntsman--the same boy who disappeared from the Camp for Wayward Boys weeks ago--and in the middle of the worst snowstorm in years. He should be dead, but here he is alive, and left in the woods with no memory of the time he'd been missing.

But Nora can feel an uneasy shift in the woods at Oliver's presence. And it's not too long after that Nora realizes she has no choice but to unearth the truth behind how the boy she has come to care so deeply about survived his time in the forest, and what led him there in the first place. What Nora doesn't know, though, is that Oliver has secrets of his own--secrets he'll do anything to keep buried, because as it turns out, he wasn't the only one to have gone missing on that fateful night all those weeks ago.

For as long as there have been fairy tales, we have been warned to fear what lies within the dark, dark woods and in Winterwood, New York Times bestselling author Shea Ernshaw, shows us why.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Nora Walker, like all the Walker women before her, is rumored to be a witch. What people don't know is that while every other Walker woman has had magical gifts, Nora has shown no sign of magic to date. Ostracized by classmates and teased by the boys at the nearby Jackjaw Camp for Wayward Boys, Nora leads a solitary life since the recent death of her beloved grandmother Ida. One night, Nora finds Jackjaw camper Oliver Huntsman freezing in the woods after escaping from camp, and she saves his life by taking him in. They are drawn to each other, but Nora is wary because she believes Oliver may be behind the disappearance and rumored death of another camper. Chapters that alternate between Nora's and Oliver's points of view offer a slow reveal of the secrets both young people are guarding, and embedded sections from a journal document the different magic powers of each Walker witch. Ernshaw weaves an irresistible spell, entwining nature, romance, and magic through a lyrical text that will catch and hold fantasy readers.--Debbie Carton Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nora Walker, a high schooler who comes from a long line of witches, is feared by everyone in her community, including those at the Camp for Wayward Boys, located across the lake from the Walkers' ancestral home. After one of the boys, Oliver, goes missing during a deadly snowstorm that seals off their area, Nora finds him lost in the haunted Wicker Woods with no recollection of how he survived alone in the freezing woods for two long weeks. When another boy dies by drowning, Nora is determined to unravel who is responsible for the disappearances, though her feelings for Oliver cloud her judgment and the truth. Dual narratives from Oliver and Nora are interspersed with pages from the Walker family spell book, and the teens' solitude and isolation make for a vivid fantasy world and a dark, thrilling atmosphere that drives the biting cold of Winterwood deep into readers' bones. Full of action, mystery, and an eldritch feel, Ernshaw's (The Wicked Deep) sophomore novel does not disappoint. Agent: Jessica Regel, Foundry Literary + Media. Ages 14--up. (Nov.)"
