The Language of Trees - Ilie Ruby I've thrown out a couple 5 stars for books lately. If that's the case, this is a 5 star plus, plus, plus!!! Very good story with wonderfully descriptive, poetic writing, a touch of mystery and mysticism (not sure if that's the correct word to use) and an engaging story that all adds up to....wonderful!Some parts of this book were hard to read about, but I think those parts just made the story more real to me. I look forward to reading more from this author!
