Tree Magic by Harriet Springbett
About The Book
Thirteen-year-old Rainbow discovers she can communicate with trees.
But that’s just the beginning. Her magic hands can shape trees at her will, but her gift is dangerous and has fatal consequences. An accident that leaves Rainbow unconscious leads her mother to make a confession that will change Rainbow’s life forever. Are her abilities a gift or a curse? Can Rainbow really trust her mother? From England to France, through secrets, fears and parallel worlds, Rainbow’s journey to understand her powers takes her beyond everything she’s ever known.
To find the truth, she must also find herself
Can you imagine being able to control the trees and heal them?
This is the “power” Rainbow has, but she is still too young to understand and use fully this power. This book is the path of learning through love, pain, loss, happiness… Because even if you have magic in your life, there will always be some setbacks in your path.
This had been a slow paced story, with a very special character that will melt your heart. As you can imagine Rainbow’s life will not be easy, but we will see her grow and the inner fight between younghood and adulthood; magic or reality. I really liked how the author, Harriet Springbett, has portrayed the inner fight we all have during our teenage years, in this case there will be some magic included, but the core of the story will be familiar to any reader.
This is a young adult read, but as a new reader of this fiction books, I think it helps any reader to understand the struggle we all had and never understood. A very helpful way to show to the teenagers/young adults that they are not alone and that the problems they have are not unique.
I would highly recommend this story to any reader, it has reality and magic, because sometimes is better to think that magic exists than focus on the dark side of our life, don’t you think?
