This book grabbed my attention from the first chapter. The story is taken from a real life situation but it is has a twist that caught my eye immediately.
Pryor lost his daughter Lily when a wolf dragged her through the woods never to be seen again. He was so lost without his little girl that he fell into a very very deep depression and he kept hearing her voice. Believing that she would come back one day to him.

He meets Ned when he decided to get something made to remember Lily each and every day. Ned is as very creative metal jewler that makes metal so beautiful and this is what Pryor needs. While Pryor is still trying to see Lily through the woods some nights, Pryor explains to the Jewler what exactly he wants and Ned comes up with something just for him. Something he will never forget at all. He keeps hoping Lily will come back to him in human form.  There are Indian legends that state anyone taken by a wolf will come back to them in the future. Ben find out what that is and the book takes you on an emotional ride with all that information.

Hope you enjoye yourself and continue to look through your own woods to find the one you want more than ever.
