Full of nature and wonder, love and adventure, Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance is a beautifully written novel that “bristles with charm and curiosity” (Winston Groom, New York Times bestselling author of Forrest Gump).
Born in a blizzard, orphaned, and believed to be raised by wolves, Weylyn Grey is someone who inspires endless curiosity in everyone he’s ever met. People say that once Weylyn wanders into your world, you’ll wish he’d never leave. But what makes him different? How does he possess the ability to transform others’ lives? How does he manage to find―and create―magic in the ordinary? This is the story of Weylyn’s journey, told from the perspective of those who knew him, loved him, or were bewildered by him along the way. In this stunning and deeply imaginative debut, author Ruth Emmie Lang introduces us to a character who will live in readers’ hearts long after the last page is turned.
