Greenwood by Michael Christie- Our Review
Greenwood by Michael Christie is a deeply moving book, like the rings in a tree the book is brilliantly and beautifully structured.
In 2038, Jake Greenwood is seeking solace on Greenwood Island from the environmental disaster that has enveloped the rest of the world.
Jake has never had a family history, and is entranced when someone from her past presents a mysterious journal holding the answers to her heritage that she so desperately seeks.
Moving backward in time to the Great Depression, a recluse finds an abandoned baby and grudgingly keeps the baby, having no idea of the chain of events that would result.
Greenwood tells the story of one family, the winding and interconnected relationships.
The drama, the complexity and the saga that are often passed on from one generation to the next in a book that moves splendidly back and forth through the lives of each character.
A book that is all encompassing, a book that demands complete attention and completely swallowed me up in the pages.
