Mary Manners has written a refreshing, interesting story capturing and holding your interest from beginning to end in The Wisdom Tree.
Jake Samuels, a pastor, unofficially meets Carin O’Malley, a teacher, when she mistakenly thinks he is the groundskeeper for East Ridge Church.
Corey Samuels, Jake’s little brother, is “King of Chaos” in Carin’s English class, but who can blame him? His life is in total chaos after he is ripped out of his home. Having no other relatives, he moves in with his older brother, Jake, following their parents death in a car accident.
The interactions between Jake, Carin and Corey, are witty, sarcastic and very believable. It is easy to imagine and recognize parts of their lives as your own.
The Wisdom Tree is a bittersweet story of life and a charming story of love one can easily read in a single sitting.
As an added bonus and greatly appreciated is the 30-day devotional included at the end.
