Product Details


“I adored so many things about We Went to the Woods—the brilliant premise, the narration, the writing, the suspense, the sly flashes of humor, the eco-Gothicism, the sexual longing, the way you’re never quite sure if things are falling apart or turning into a love story. But most of all, it’s incredibly compelling: The Secret History meets The Beach, with a generous dash of The Great Gatsby. Dark, gothic, and hauntingly beautiful, this is addictive storytelling at its best.”—JP Delaney, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before

“Tantalizingly mysterious . . . Mack—observant, curious, and apt to leap to unwarranted conclusions—makes a likable and understandably unreliable narrator. . . . The setting, traced through a year of seasons, is richly realized, with believable details about the difficulties of farming with little resources and less knowledge. . . . Equal parts slow-burning thriller and intelligent analysis of the pros and cons of intentional communities, the novel will appeal to those who would rather read about such endeavors from a safe distance than be immersed in their messy reality.”Kirkus Reviews

“Dolan-Leach has crafted a compelling tale about the passions and folly of young people trying to carve out meaning and purpose in their lives.”Booklist
“Emotionally satisfying . . . Mack’s stoic exterior and sharp observations provide ballast as the secrets multiply. . . . Readers who enjoy teeming stories with political bite will be pleased.”Publishers Weekly
