If you’re looking for a riveting tale of high society and the untamable wilderness, then look no further than Jean Zimmerman’s novel Savage Girl. The tale revolves around an 18-year-old girl named Bronwyn who was raised by wolves in the wilds of the Nevada wilderness. She is adopted by a wealthy Manhattan socialite family, the Delegates, in 1875 and is taken back to the East Coast in order to be civilized. Once they deem it’s proper for Bronwyn to go out in public, the Delegates decide to introduce her to their high society buddies. While a pack of suitors find her irresistible, they also wind up mutilated a few days later. This begs the question: is the willful Bronwyn a cold-blooded killer?
