We travel back to when Abigail Grey was 13 years old, and the Wendigo plague first hit West Virginia. The idea of the children being sent off to a place of safety of course stems from the second world war, but so many of the books and stories that influenced me in my childhood have that same world-changing event on a personal scale. Here we finally get to meet Abigail's parents and find out what she was like as a girl.
