Wolf Den Hollow



It’s the dead of winter, and Sila, a bewitching Cherokee teenager, has just fled her marriage to a brutal drunk. Desperate for work, she finds herself knocking on the door of a mill office in the Missouri Ozarks. There she meets the handsome owner, Charley Barclay.

Despite the fact that Sila and Charley have virtually nothing in common and thirty years between them, a spark ignites. Their passionate love affair quickly intensifies, and for Charley, there is no going back to his loveless marriage―especially after Sila is with child. They marry, and his empire expands as they face tragedy and treachery along the way. Just as their lives seem perfect, Charley falls victim to cancer. Sila’s devastation is compounded by the onset of the Great Depression. She loses her inheritance and is faced with losing her home. As her situation grows increasingly dire, Sila―determined to protect herself and her family―is forced to make a desperate decision.

Inspired by a true story, and replete with natural healing, glimpses of the logging boom, and heartbreaking drama, Wolf Den Hollow brings to life this unlikely, captivating romance of the early 1900s.


My Review


I fell in love with this book instantly. I was just planning to read a few chapters before bed but once I started reading, I found I could not stop. The story and the characters that the author wove together was beautiful.

The characters really did come alive in this book. Every single one of them too and not just a few or the main characters. Charley's love for Sila was evident in the way that he cared and provided for her. I love that Sila was so "motherly" towards Charley's children with his previous wife as if they were her own. You can say that I have become a fan of this author now and look forward to reading more books by Donna Murray.
