An Unexpected Forest
A NovelBook - 2007
In this quirky first novel, the U.S. Forestry Department mistakenly delivers 1,000 spruce tree seedlings to former attorney Horace, who decides to plant the tiny trees in the wild. Horace's wife begins to think he's gone mad. Into the mix come an ex-convict, who helps Horace plant the trees, and his girlfriend. Four souls adrift finally come together on a Maine island, where they discover unexpected joy in each other's company and ultimately come together as a family.
