The Faerie Tree by Jane Cable
ABOUT THE BOOK
HOW CAN A MEMORY SO VIVID BE WRONG?
In the summer of 1986 Robin and Izzie hold hands under The Faerie Tree and wish for a future together. Within hours tragedy rips their dreams apart.
In the winter of 2006, each carrying their own burden of grief, they stumble back into each other’s lives and try to create a second chance. But why are their memories of 1986 so different? And which one of them is right?
With strong themes of memory, love and grief, The Faerie Tree is a novel as gripping and unputdownable as Jane Cable’s first book, The Cheesemaker’s House, which won the Suspense & Crime category of The Alan Titchmarsh Shows Peoples Novelist competition. It is a story that will resonate with fans of romance, suspense, and folklore.
This dark second-chance romance was hard to put down even though the more I read, the more uneasy I felt about Izzie and Robin’s delicate relationship.
Robin and Izzie’s love is just beginning when tragedy strikes and they are estranged for twenty years. Soon after losing her husband, Connor, Izzie bumps into a homeless person who looks like Robin, so she tracks him down and they try to start a new life with her teenage daughter, Claire. Unfortunately, memory lapses cause confusion and doubts which threaten Robin and Izzie’s world. Can they be happy after all the heartache?
Ms. Cable tackles the very real struggles of mental illness and depression and how they impact people you love. Robin is my favorite character in this book because he grows into a grounded, kind and wise man who cares deeply for Izzie even experiencing her mood swings and nasty digs. I also loved The Faerie Tree and how Robin carried on the traditions that his friend Jennifer started.
Overall, this is a very heartbreaking and real tale about grief, mental illness, fear, and true love. The reader can’t help rooting for Izzie and Robin because they have been through so much and deserve a HEA. Recommend highly!
Thank you to Ms. Cable for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
