Praise for No Clock in the Forest, Book I of The Alpine Tales


"This is a romance in the best sense of that old word: a tale of strange adventures and a struggle between good and evil in a world where we are never very far from beauty or terror. It invites comparison with both Lewis and Tolkien because they are all drawing water from the same deep spring."

Loren Wilkinson, Earthkeeping

"No Clock in the Forest takes its place in the long tradition of fantasy writing—but with a difference. Willis weds to the world of faerie a precise and intimate knowledge of the wilderness and perhaps has invented a new and timely sub-genre: the eco-fantasy."

Daniel Taylor, Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories

"This is a work of both careful craftsmanship and rich imagination. Willis takes his readers into a wilderness where nothing is predictable. He leads them to wisdom and joy. Then he returns them to their everyday world renewed and changed."

John Leax, Grace Is Where I Live

"No Clock in the Forest makes the Pacific Northwest feel a little like Narnia. Willis has produced moral fiction that doesn't moralize, touching issues both timeless and timely."

David C. Downing, Looking for the King: An Inklings Novel
