Description - The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
This story takes place in l832 - in a period of English History that never happened. Good King James III is on the throne and the country is ravaged by wolves which have migrated through the newly-opened Channel Tunnel. When Sylvia and Bonnie (both orphans) fall into the hands of evil Miss Slighcarp, they must use all their wits to escape unscathed - for the governess is more cruel and merciless than the wolves that surround the great house of Willoughby Chase. A wild and evocative fantasy, stylishly told, with a tremendous romantic appeal.' Observer
