The White Hare by Michael Fishwick

The one who doesn't go straight home, the traitor,
The friendless one, the cat of the wood…
A lost boy. A dead girl, and one who is left behind.

Robbie doesn’t want anything more to do with death, but life in a village full of whispers and secrets can’t make things the way they were.

When the white hare appears, magical and fleet in the silvery moonlight, she leads them all into a legend, a chase, a hunt.  But who is the hunter and who the hunted?

In The White Hare, Michael Fishwick deftly mingles a coming-of-age story
with mystery, myth and summer hauntings.

Peer & Press Reviews

Fishwick combines the pangs of bereavement and the perturbations of adolescence, exploring (often with a comic touch) family tensions as well as the terrors of the deep past, and all the time propelling his narrative along with an adventure that unfolds in the present… this is the best sort of magical realism.

The Spectator

A magical and thoughtful tale about the place where old and new communities meet, this is also a sensitive, well-told story about the rifts that occur in families and friendships, and how they can be healed.  Fishwick’s writing is fine and stylish and never loses the grip of a slowly building, powerful story.

Booktrust

Filled with echoes of the past, I would recommend this for teenagers and adults alike.
