Jessica Knaussabout this book: Emma floats through life, unable to recognize her own talents or make her own decisions. She even marries her Shakespeare professor without being sure it's what she wants to do. When he dies, Emma is left isolated and confused. When a vagrant, Geraldine, wants to camp on her property, sleeping in trees instead of indoors, the confusion only increases. Little by little, Geraldine and Emma forge a friendship that helps Emma see her situation for what it is and start making her own choices, by no one's rules but her own.
The cover represents Emma's struggle to go from caterpillar to butterfly. The butterfly also has tiger stripes, so watch out when Emma emerges from her chrysalis!
This book was based on the myths and legends outlined in Clarissa Pinkola Estés's Women Who Run with the Wolves, so if you enjoyed that masterpiece, Tree/House will make a lot of sense to you. A quick read, perfect for the reader in your life who's looking for more.
