Into the Forest

by Jean Hegland
£9.99   paperback  Dial Press (1998)

Into the Forest by Jean Hegland At first sight you could call this a SF novel with the classic ingredients. Something happened: a nuclear war? an accident with a biological weapon? Anyway it seems that public life has ceased to exist. There is no petrol, no electricity, no TV or radio and everyone seems to have gone. Two young sisters, who lost their parents, live in a cottage deep in the woods of North California. As a result of what happened they're cut off completely and have to start living self-sufficiently, until one day a young man comes to their house and he stays for a while. After he's gone, the two sisters gradually change into a more 'primitive' way of life with a different perception (more elaborated as time goes by) of their surroundings. Haunting and beautiful.
