THIS TRAILER. I’m usually not a fan of book trailers because they tend to be terriblereallybadawful.
But I wouldn’t share one of those kinds of trailers with you guys. I’d never heard of the book before seeing the trailer and now the book is at the top of my wishlist. So there.
Prepare for shivers!
Gretel and the Dark is Eliza Granville’s dazzling novel of darkness, evil – and hope.Vienna, 1899.
Josef Breuer – celebrated psychoanalyst – is about to encounter his strangest case yet. Found by the lunatic asylum, thin, head shaved, she claims to have no name, no feelings – to be, in fact, not even human. Intrigued, Breuer determines to fathom the roots of her disturbance.
Years later, in Germany, we meet Krysta. Krysta’s Papa is busy working in the infirmary with the ‘animal people’, so little Krysta plays alone, lost in the stories of Hansel and Gretel, the Pied Piper, and more. And when everything changes and the real world around her becomes as frightening as any fairy tale, Krysta finds that her imagination holds powers beyond what she could have ever guessed . . .
