Virginia Arthur | 23 comments Have never had this happen editing my own books. A little irritating. Could someone please add the following update default description and let me know why I cannot edit/update the information for my own books I added myself originally? Thank you.

Virginia Arthur
Book is Treed

Eco-political 'friction'.

A consequence of getting older is current experiences inevitably get threaded to memories as Maybelline Emmons learns when she embarks on what she thinks will be a simple road trip to find an old friend that happens to be an old tree. Widowed, she doesn't have many old friends left. She gets way more than she bargained for. The easiest way out is just turn around and go back to her comfortable townhouse in Santa Barbara, sip her Pinot and watch her hummingbirds. This was always enough before except it does seem kind of providential and she is a nice person and what should the check amount be? (Has she lost her mind?) And suddenly she has a 30-something son (with a girlfriend who gets in her face about justice). Maybelline doesn't know why they put all the ugly strip malls and box stores in the poorest part of town. She never even thought of it and why would she? What, the sheriff, again? A man named, what? Tank? And what is it Tamara and Terrence's mother knows about their family's connection with the tree?

This poignant, passionate yet hilarious story revolves around efforts to save an old-growth tree but things go off the rails in such a compelling way, it's sure to keep you on the edge of your branch (likely laughing, so don't fall off). Per Virginia Arthur's two previous novels, Treed will curl the tendrils of your heart, blow your leaves off, and maybe, just maybe, motivate you to save something in your own backyard.

Virginia Arthur | 23 comments Hm. I was told I was a librarian but pretty sure this was pre-Amazon takeover.

Thank you and be well,
