well-written character driven novel- great read!

Solomon's Oak was a a surprisingly enjoyable read, wtih an unexpected depth to the characters. I was delighted by this tale of widowed Glory, orphaned Juniper, and injured Joseph as they try to build connected lives despite the tragic events in their pasts. There were some laugh out loud moments as well as episodes of heart-wrenching sadness, all deftly handled and none overplayed. Once I picked up the book and got started, I read through cover to cover. This lovely novel is a great way to spend a winter afternoon and will definitely have me looking for more works by this talented author.
