The Father’s Tree
Crystal Jencks sends us on a wild and dangerous adventure with The Father’s Tree! Bent on proving the tale of the Garden of Eden correct, Dr. Elise Harper leads a team on an expedition through the Caucasus mountains. But the team soon finds that this is no simple fact-finding mission, and that the dangers to them are not only of this world. Jencks kept me guessing all the way through this exciting and deep journey! There are more twists in this one than the Caucasus have switchbacks, and it was exciting to flip through all the way to the end.
