If Tree's Could Talk

Book Description:The industries, politics, and policies of an emerging nation shape the Karlson family in both the 1800 and 1900s and set into motion a chain of events that will rewrite their history for decades to come. A novel of mystery, suspense, and revelation. Wisconsin, early 1900s. The yearning to know an absent mother sets Sunny Karlson on a path of discovery that leads to disturbing revelations. As she seeks to unravel her parents’ past, a startling tale of intersecting lives, ever circling and overlapping, leads to all the missing pieces. Past and present weave together to create a compelling story of friendship, betrayal, and love—and of sojourns to scary places. Set in the beauty of Wisconsin landscapes, the story spans generations, telling the big story that only trees can tell—heartrending, humorous, and wholly satisfying.

I fell in love with this book from the first page.  Full of beautiful and inspiring quotes, characters and settings.
