These books are such a good read. Anything with little girls that remind me of my daughters and trees make my list easily. Eliot and I read them and they just warmed my heart. Eliot and Elaina love to climb the tree sized shrub in our backyard. We have planted both maple and a willow tree in our yard. It is bittersweet that the willow tree is flourishing. It is / was Annika's tree.... My lost daughter just will not leave my heart.
