In this story of a family, a ranch and a fire, Rachel Devenish Ford has created a mesmerising work of art. Hers is a unique style which combines detailed realism with lyrical fantasy, creating a world so powerful that it left me feeling elated. If you've ever struggled with your role as a mother, a daughter or a wife then this novel is your soft place to fall. Most importantly, if you have struggled with (in Devenish Ford's own words) "the dark, slippery places of the mind" then I urge you to rush to read this novel. It will bring you through the fire safely, and prove to you that the wildflowers can still bloom.

I was so captured by this story, that I couldn't wait to find a few more minutes to keep reading. The characters seemed so REAL to me, and the author's descriptions of the locations were detailed enough to make me believe I could see what she could. I've always enjoyed reading the author's blog at various points in my own adventure, and her way with words in this amazing novel are just as beautiful as I expected!

The Eve Tree is plucked from the headlines in that it is set amidst the California wildfires. It is the story of one family - the relationships and the conflicts - as they strive to save their family land and the main character Molly. The book does a wonderful job of conveying the anticipation of the fire and disaster coming. A great read!*** Reviewed for member giveaway ***
