The Lost Children of Lorenwald


Forests. Ancient twining havens for all manner of fantastical beings, from tiny imps hidden in the lichen to long-forgotten gods slumbering between the roots of a giant oak. Forests have a curious pull over all of us but no more so than the Lorenwald. Child after child has been lost to it’s beckoning depths. Now it is a forbidden place, shunned by the local villagers for fear of the unknown. Can a wandering songwriter unravel the mysteries of the Lorenwald and discover the fate of the lost or will she too be claimed by the trees?

‘The Lost Children of Lorenwald’ by Elizabeth Hopkinson is the seventh short story in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 3’ published by Mother’s Milk Books. Visit their website for a browse of their published works.
