Mira lay deep inside her den, nuzzling her newborn pups. As the weeks pass, the unusual appearance of two of her offspring grows more pronounced and with that, the pack’s behaviour changes. A strangeness hangs in the air, compounding the onlookers’ superstitions. As fear turns to aggression, Joel, the alpha male, is forced to assert his dominance and defend his family…

Edmund Rainer is on vacation with his dad in the forest, when he discovers the little body of a wolf pup. Carrying him back to the cabin, Edmund rescues the pup, fascinated with his beautiful ears. A friendship blossoms between the two, but when a devastating storm propels them on an extraordinary journey, they must use their instincts to survive the hidden dangers lurking in the forest.

Unwittingly, Edmund becomes embroiled in the treachery revolving around the young pup and his life becomes increasingly under threat as he tries to protect GoldenEars from harm.

Jane H Wood was born in Bristol in 1951. Later her family moved to the East Anglian town of Colchester. She began her working life in the competitive and changing world of women’s fashion.

  1. Lexy Gómez

    A heartwarming adventure. This is a book full of joy, drama and digs deep into the bonds that a person can form with an animal. The writing is so atmospheric, you’ll fell one with the wolves and you’ll love every second of it.

  2. Peter John Wood

    A really good read that is hard to put down. Fast paced, with lots of action. Strong characters, with a mixture of emotions. Thought provoking on the plight of wolves. Looking forward to part two.

  3. Amazon Customer

    The parallel stories of Edmund, GoldenEars and the wolf packs makes for an intriguing, fast moving and exciting plot line in a novel which is difficult to put down. Set in Canada, the carefully crafted descriptions add to the power of the novel and the links between Edmund and the wolves, especially GoldenEars. I look forward to reading Part 2.

  4. Ann Feri

    This book is a “MUST READ”! If you like wolves and a book full of adventure, action, suspense and drama, grab this book. I’m a huge supporter of wolves, so this book was right up my alley, I couldn’t put it down. You will fall in love with Golden Ears. I would love to see the author write a part 2 of this book. Thank you The Book Guild via NetGalley for the free copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own. I liked this book so much that I ordered a copy from Amazon. Thank you Jane H Wood for writing this wonderful book.

    A must read. Written from a viewpoint not often explored by authors. A wonderful book!

  6. Marie-Hélène Fasquel

    This is the second book whose narrator is not a human being I’ve read and I absolutely loved it. The narrator seems to be a third person omniscient woolf. This children’s book is packed with adventures, action, love, suspense, and feelings. We’re seeing the story through the eyes of the wolves and their stance is more often than not much healthier than that of many human beings! However, we are faced with feelings which ring a bell: treason, fighting for power (and the dangers of power), fighting for one’s family and loving one’s own.
    Everything about this book is perfect: the plotline, the characters (the bad and the good!), the setting, the fabulous mountains and forest…
    If you want to make a child happy (or their parents), you can give this book without worrying about it! It personally reminded me of Call of the wild by Jack London, to some extent.

  7. Autrement by Alexia A

    I think this book was really one of my favorite books for 2019. There’s adventure, friendship and the desire to change things.

    The type of writing and the detail of nature reminded me of the books of the incomparable Jack London even if here, the story is even more percussive and realistic.

    I really loved this story that I think is open to everyone even if some details can be better understood by adults. In addition, a legend is created around GoldenEars with his eyes and coat.

    I have added this British author, Jane H. Wood, to my favorite authors, and I am pleased to recommend her to friends and family. She writes a smooth story with a great deal of heart… An excellent book for reading aloud to youngsters. And it warmed my old heart, as well.
