― Mary Watson, The Wren Hunt

 “Looking at Wren is like looking into the heart of some ancient thing. Her skin makes me think of tree bark and her eyes remind me of the green at the very top of the trees in the woods. Her hair falls down her shoulders in ropes and I think of tree roots jostling for space around an ancient oak.”
― Mary Watson, The Wickerlight

― Mary Watson, The Wren Hunt
