Read full description of the books The Killing Tree:I have been thinking of the words I would use to describe this book since I finished reading it late last night. For some reason, I can't seem to formulate a description. Each character kept me up for different reasons: the cold, domineering grandfather kept me up as I wondered how anyone could be that cruel to his own blood. The aloof, free spirited grandmother kept me up as I wondered how she could allow so much sadness to happen under her watch. Teenage Mercy kept me up as I thought about her journey, her life, her entrance into this world: born under an apple tree where her mother would later die as a result of childbirth complications. Mercy's mother forced to give birth outside as her father refused to open the door to their house, ashamed of his daughter. Yet, despite all of the sadness and cruelty in her world, Mercy finds her way. A fast read. Powerful overall themes about love, family, and friendship.
Read information about the authorYears ago, during an intense law class I gave up trying to make sense of civil procedure. Instead, I opened a blank page on my laptop and started writing about a girl named Mercy. By the time I graduated, that blank page had become my first novel.
Today, my law license is inactive, but my writing is not. I'm the author of The Killing Tree, The Memory Thief, and my new novel, Pearl Weaver's Epic Apology. I aspire to create books filled with characters that endure. It is my great wish that you will treasure your time with these characters as much as I have.
