Very Long Shot

Recommended Posts

I can vaguely remember reading a children's book at school when I was around 10, so 1980ish. I don't remember finishing it and it's really bugging me!!

 

I seem to remember the lead character was a young teenage girl. Timeline I'm thinking around the Dark ages or maybe even Iron Age, I can recall references to honey and mead production. The community the girl lived with were largely confined to the village due to a threat (wraithes?) in the wilderness. The only other thing I can recall is a giant (possibly female) buried underground though the outline visible as hills.

 

Trigger any memories?

 

Thanks!

That bit sounds very familiar, but I'm sorry, I can't name the book. I'll have a think. :blush:

Could it be 'The Giant Under The Snow' by John Gordon??

 

Thanks Susanne!! Once I read some of the character names on Amazon it all came flooding back. I wish I had found this forum sooner :blush:

 

Now to get a copy!
