Carin is a young teacher trying to move forward after the deaths of her mother and her younger brother. She's making a fresh start in a new town and all is going well with the exception of one unruly student. After losing his parents in an accident less than a year ago, Jake is spread thin pastoring his church and raising his kid brother, Corey. Carin goes the extra mile to help Corey change his behavior and turn his grade around. The Wisdom Tree is a sweet romance with some mystery and suspense sprinkled in and a healthy dose of faith. I was happy to see a nice variety of ages among the characters, the inclusion of kids and seniors really made the story come to life. Carin struggled with her relationship with God and with an overbearing ex-boyfriend. Jake wanted to protect both Corey and Carin. I enjoyed the book and appreciated the elements of grief, freedom, forgiveness, faith, and family. I had the opportunity to read and review this book through NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
This is a book that I really enjoyed. The beginning really captured my interest in a fun and humorous way. While there are serious moments throughout the story I found it to be relatively light-hearted and enjoyed reading the development of the characters. A great read for a relaxing afternoon.
