Clara is a normal 12-year-old girl, until a scary encounter with an unusually large black cat changes her life for ever. With the help of her Aunt Isa, she is introduced to her astounding true nature: as a Wildwitch, she can learn to communicate with animals, and harness the magical power of the natural world around her.
But before Clara can get to grips with her newfound abilities, she is confronted with a powerful enemy. Her experiences force her to grow up faster than she had expected, and she learns that, in the wild world, she will have to learn to fight as well as flee.
