Tree Fever

Tree Fever

When a stand of 100-year-old trees is threatened, Jessie Dearborn-James, a psychotherapist in a small town, is pushed off the branch of her conventional life and gets called an “environmental tree hugger”. One of her clients, who is dying, helps her realize the importance of standing for what she believes in.

Harley Skinkeeper, a part Ojibway man, takes Jesse through some native rituals that give her the courage to withstand the powerful forces in the town that want to silence her. They become lovers and she discovers her own strong sensuality and a deep commitment to be true to her inner knowing. This helps her repair a deep rift in her relationship with her daughter, Robin, who sides with the developer who wants to take down the trees. The debate heats up and a group of feisty seniors who call themselves the Guerrilla Grannies join in the fight.

Funny, sexy, this is a book that will get you believing in good things.
