Overview

A fast and fascinating read that will leave you wondering about the pink kitchen sponge!
Emma isn't sure what to do with her life. She isn't sure what her Shakespeare professor wants from her,
even after they get married. Even after he dies. Their country estate becomes a kind of prison. Then Geraldine appears. She kills the cat, aims for thestable boy, sleeps in the trees, and brags about sleeping with her boss. But she's the best thing that ever happened to Emma. With a help of a ghostly apparition, Emma understands that the only prison is in her mind. Does she have the courage and the strength to move on and create her own life, by her own rules? This edition also contains haunting black and white photographs of the Pennsylvania wilderness where most of the story takes place.
The perfect gift for the reader in your life.

Editorial Reviews

Unruly Guides - Roxanne McHenry
Unexpectedly Loved This Book - Quirky, intriguing
Jessica's book delighted me. Tree/House has a smart, intellectual appeal that other fiction I've read recently completely lacks. I knew this would be a great read. Events immediately take a turn for the unexpected, and I loved seeing the world through the protagonist's eyes. Jessica is a writer with a story to unfold (not necessarily to craft for sales), but I think other readers will enjoy this book, too. A whole-hearted five stars.
