When Ben and Margo\'s cousin turns up it means trouble. Thirteen year old Elsie is a \'townie\' through and through. She does not intend making life easy for the farmer and his family and she certainly has no intention of getting swept up in the whole senseless wolf business. Wolves and people just do not communicate with their minds. But when all three children are drawn into Rhamin\'s life or death fight for survival, it turns out not to be just the wolves\' battle. Pursued by one enemy, wolves and children fail to reckon on all the others.
