A town drowning in guilty secrets and the hopes of the living while haunted by the spirits of the dead. The residents of Canandaigua Lake have all experienced tragedy before but some families seem especially cursed. A melancholy tale of loss and redemption, The Language of Trees is a story of how the lives of these families are intertwined like the branches of trees grown close together and how their inseparable destinies hold sorrow and hope. Ilie Ruby blends Seneca myth and tradition with a tragic modern tale in a way that is at once haunting and beautiful. The Language of Trees is filled with vivid imagery and lyrical prose that will remain with the reader long after turning the last page.
I recommend The Language of Trees to readers of paranormal fiction, mysteries, psychological suspense, romance, ghost stories and especially to fans of paranormal suspense.
