In This Quirky First Novel, The US Forestry Department Mistakenly Delivers , 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 Wonderful characters Beautiful story. Friend at the Ellsworth City Library suggested this book and I enjoyed it, as did Andy One must suspend disbelief a bit, but it s a nice world Morse creates, one in which people s instincts are unpredictable but, on the whole, good Its humor is understated but real the main character trying to plant 10,000 little trees in the Maine woods black flies, bears, fire ensue, as well as an unusual friendship Great depiction of a long time marriage, too Not great literature, but well written and well worth reading. Maine author tells tale of a 64 year man who plants trees from the Maine Forest Service that were delivered to his house by mistake, and his artist wife They meet a young couple and everyone learns a new role for their lives. An unexpected delightful book A quirky Maine novel with great characters and story development. It starts out light and breezy, but then the story moves into a prison, becomes decidedly not light and breezy, and I had to stop reading. Sweet story, perhaps too simplistic I enjoyed the older characters and felt like I knew them I also enjoyed the sense of place Maine woods and especially Vinalhaven Island.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the An Unexpected Forest book, this is one of the most wanted Eleanor Morse author readers around the world.
