by Nicole Fair
Two young lovers, Cairpen and Rulf, discover a magical “traveling tree” and find themselves immersed in a search for purpose in other worlds and other realms. Along the way, they seek to understand the unexplained disappearance of Cairpen’s parents. In poetic, vividly descriptive language that draws the reader into the humid, subtropical world of Andros, the author portrays their struggle to understand a new reality that is continually challenged.
Guided only by mysterious, unearthly beings, the characters must learn to cope with loss and draw upon their mutual strengths to forge a new place for themselves in an increasingly expanding world.
