(88) The Courage Tree by Diane Chamberlain

What would you do to save your daughter? To what lengths would you go? Would you break your daughter out of prison? Would you agree to a radical treatment that might cause her to live with her terminal kidney disease?

Those are the questions at the heart of this book, The Courage Tree. The Courage Tree is a book about two mothers and two daughters. Janine took a risk with Sophie's life and let her go to Girl Scout camp. When she doesn't return to the designated pick up spot with the rest of the girls, Janine & her ex-husband, Joe fear that their daughter will not be found in time for her next treatment & dialysis.

On the other end of this story is Zoe & Marti. They were living a charmed, privileged life when Marti was convicted of murder. Zoe is so convinced that she was wrongly convicted and sets a plan into motion that will free them both from the prisons of their lives.

It is here where the worlds of the two mothers collide. But is it in time to save the daughters that mean so much to them?

I really like Diane Chamberlain's books. I have read several of them now, they are very reminiscent of Jodi Picoult books, but the difference being you don't want to smack the author when you are finished reading. They are well written, thought provoking stories that will leave you feeling happy & satisfied with the end. Whether it be a "happy ending" or not. Her books also usually have Readers Guide questions for book clubs.

"you don't want to smack the author when you are finished reading"

That's EXACTLY how I feel about Jodi Picoult books! (I did like both Second Glance and Nineteen Minutes though.) I'm going to have to try some Diane Chamberlain now. :)

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
