Appreciate your help with this book I started reading, but did not finish. There is a young girl who is protecting a younger brother and I think the father dies(d). Everyday it’s a trial to go to the bakery and get bread and return home without being beaten and/or raped. Believe there is also danger from some beast or maybe a wolf. It’s not modern times but maybe medieval or a time of tribes. Feel pretty certain the author is well known. I thought it was Picoult but that doesn’t seem to work out. Maybe King?
