The Wishing Trees by John Shors
 
Book Club Recommended
Inspiring, Insightful, Optimistic
A beautiful story

My book club had read Mr. Shors' first novel, Beneath a Marble Sky, which we enjoyed. We actually spoke with him on a speakphone, and had a wonderful chat.

We decided to read The Wishing Trees, and are so glad that we did. This is a beautiful, hopeful novel, centered on the round-the-world travels of a widower and his ten-year-old daughter. While this novel is at times sad, it's ultimately uplifting and lovely. It's also a great book club book in that it inspires thoughtful discussion about what a parent or a child should do in certain situations. It's also revealing of other cultures. I'd highly recommend this novel to any book clubs.

We spoke to Mr. Shors again about The Wishing Trees, and talking with him is really a memorable experience.

A wonderful story of the Taj Mahal

Beneath a Marble Sky is a perfect example of why I love historical fiction. This novel brought the story of the Taj Mahal to vivid life. I recently re-read this book, which I rarely do, and enjoyed it immensely once again.
