Written with the same humour, sensitivity and compassion that won the hearts of readers of Book of Lost Threads, The Memory Tree is one familys journey of love and forgiveness.When Paulina dies mid-dance, she leaves 12-year-old Zav and 7-year-oldMoreWritten with the same humour, sensitivity and compassion that won the hearts of readers of Book of Lost Threads, The Memory Tree is one familys journey of love and forgiveness.When Paulina dies mid-dance, she leaves 12-year-old Zav and 7-year-old Sealie with their loving but unstable father, Hal.

The grieving family decides to plant a tree in her memory - a magnolia which, growing along with the children, offers a special place where secrets are whispered and feelings can be confessed.But as the memory tree grows, Hal, bereft, and increasingly suspicious of the world, turns to his own brand of salvation to make sense of the voices that bewilder and torment him. Mrs Mac, housekeeper and second mother since Paulinas death, cooks, cleans, loves and worries about her family.

She is even more concerned when Hal brings a larger-than-life stranger to the house for a beer- but Pastor Moses B. Washbourne, founder of the Church of the Divine Conflagration, ex-sergeant of the US Army, soon becomes part of the family, with surprising and far-reaching consequences.As the seasons pass, Sealie blossoms into young woman, the apple of Hals eye while Zav, having spent his childhood quietly trying to win his fathers lost attention, is conscripted for duty in Vietnam.And all the while, the voices continue to murmur poisonous words to Hal who knows he must keep them hidden . . .

until he is persuaded into the most tragic of acts.Written with humour and compassion, The Memory Tree is a poignant and compelling story of love, loyalty, grief and forgiveness.
