Much to appreciate in this book but perhaps not the masterpiece which reviewers have claimed. Too long, too many characters, too didactic, in our opinion. But beautiful writing and it prompted an empassioned conversation about our love of trees and becoming ecowarriors!

One liner: 
The best novel ever written about trees, according to writer Ann Patchett. Will we agree?
