THE WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE by Joan Aiken. Not exactly a fantasy, the first book in the fantastic WOLVES CHRONICLES is more of a gothic tale that starts on a barren moor where wolves prowl and cousins Sylvia and Bonnie are left in the care of the wicked Miss Slighcarp. It moves on to an orphanage and a rescue by the wonderful Simon. Perfect for readers not quite ready for JANE EYRE.
