Hana is a 19-year-old student who falls in a "fairy-tale like" love with a "wolf man". Over the course of the 13-year story Hana gives birth to two children - older sister Yuki, and younger brother Ame, or "Snow and Rain". At first the family quietly lives in city trying to hide their wolf heritage, but when the "wolf man" suddenly dies Hana makes the decision to move to a rural town, far from their previous city life.
The most generous thing I can say about my parents is that I don't always know why they say the things they say or why they do the things they do. Parents are a mystery to me. I love them, I live with them, I'm being raised by them and they are kind of fun to hang around. But as they are people themselves, they are prone to the same wants, needs, problems and crises that I am. Except they have me to deal with on top of that. So Wolf Children shouldn't really be viewed as a story of a mother raising her children (though that is what happens). It should be treated as a story about a mother who is changed by and changes the destinies of her children.
