Solomon is full of anger—with the teachers and his father who have failed him, with the mother who has left him, and also with himself. He can’t bear to be at school or at home. His refuge is one corner of the church graveyard, where nothing flourishes except a single rowan tree. Then one day, workmen uproot the tree and, as it dies, a terrible force comes to life. Can Solomon find the strength to fight the ancient and evil power that has been unleashed?About the Author:
