Finding magic in the ordinary.
In this warm debut novel, Ruth Emmie Lang teaches us about
adventure and love in a beautifully written story full of
nature and wonder.
Orphaned, raised by wolves, and the proud owner of a horned
pig named Merlin, Weylyn Grey knew he wasn’t like other
people. But when he single-handedly stopped that tornado on
a stormy Christmas day in Oklahoma, he realized just how
different he actually was.
That tornado was the first of many strange events that seem
to follow Weylyn from town to town, although he doesn’t like
to take credit. As amazing as these powers may appear, they
tend to manifest themselves at inopportune times and places.
From freak storms to trees that appear to grow over night,
Weylyn’s unique abilities are a curiosity at best and at
worst, a danger to himself and the woman he loves. But Mary
doesn’t care. Since Weylyn saved her from an angry wolf on
her eleventh birthday, she’s known that a relationship with
him isn’t without its risks, but as anyone who’s met Weylyn
will tell you, once he wanders into your life, you’ll wish
he’d never leave.
Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance tells the story
of Weylyn Grey’s life from the perspectives of the people
who knew him, loved him, and even a few who thought he was
just plain weird. Although he doesn’t stay in any of their
lives for long, he leaves each of them with a story to tell.
Stories about a boy who lives with wolves, great storms that
evaporate into thin air, fireflies that make phosphorescent
honey, and a house filled with spider webs and the strange
man who inhabits it.
There is one story, however, that Weylyn wishes he could
change: his own. But first he has to muster enough courage
to knock on Mary’s front door.
