Staff Reviews

After a brutal beating during a home invasion, Toby is left with physical injuries and mental trauma. Unable to work he moves into Ivy House, where he and his cousins spent a lot of childhood summers, to help care for his uncle recently diagnosed with brain cancer. When a grisly discovery is made, Toby struggles to put the pieces together. Did he not notice the ripples below the surface of his idyllic youth? This stand-alone novel is rich with character development and the examination of privilege. -Sydne, Atlanta

“Reading Tana French means disappearing into another life for a while. Her stories aren’t meant to be slick or flashy, but deliberate, intricate studies of characters and their motivations. The Witch Elm is no different, as it follows the unraveling of Toby starting the night he surprises two burglars in his apartment. As you learn the secrets and weaknesses of Toby and his family, you begin to realize that while finding out what happened is enjoyable and surprising, finding out the how and the why is even better.”
— Tyler Goodson, Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA
