One summer's day, the peaceful life of a Suffolk village is disturbed for ever by a strange visitation. Who are the two children who seem to have come from nowhere, speak no English, will eat no food and, most terrible of all, are green from head to toe? The twelfth-century monks who chronicled the incident could offer no rational explanation. Are the children something to fear, to threaten, to exploit, to lust after, to love? Are they freaks or angels, imps or imposters? Wolfpit anatomises English society faced by dreadful choices, a known world trembling on the verge of the miraculous.
