Image of Anna Hoghton for Orla and the Wild Hunt

Orla and the Wild Hunt is the stunningly original adventure from the acclaimed author of The Mask of Aribella (and former Topping & Company Bath bookseller!), Anna Hoghton. Join us and Anna in the bookshop to celebrate the launch of her new children’s book, following two siblings in a quest to overcome their grief and find their missing gran. Anna has woven a story brimming with peril, warmth and hope that incorporates real Irish mythology and folklore.

Orla and her brother go to stay with their gran in Ireland. Grieving the death of their mum, the children revel in the comfort of their grandmother’s house and her magical storytelling. But soon after they arrive, Gran vanishes. Helped by a local boy – and a peculiar creature found in the garden shed – they set out to find her. Shadowed by a shape-shifting darkness known as the Wild Hunt, the children – and especially Orla – must put their sadness behind them if they’re to rescue their beloved Gran..
