Twenty-One Trees turned out to be a wonderful gem. These are likable, real and charming characters. The love Birdy shows for Savannah, regardless of how difficult it may be at times, is wonderful. I was engrossed in their story and I was rooting for them all the way. Birdy and Savannah’s children were absolute dolls! These were children who’ve seen their parents at their best, as well as their worst and it showed. Yet, they remained resilient and sweet throughout the story. I found them to be extremely appealing characters and I wanted to see things work out for them.
When an author makes me care about the welfare of their characters, I know they’ve gotten it right. Although this story is heartbreaking at times, Linda Cousine injects some really funny humor into her writing. I found myself giggling several times. Her writing has a natural flow that I found quite appealing.
Twenty-One Trees is a beautiful story about depression, abuse, friendship, loyalty and love. I highly recommend giving it a read!
Few people in real life are lucky enough to have this depth of love and understanding for another human being. It can happen between a mother and child, a father and child, lovers, siblings, relatives, companions, or best friends. It's precious, and no price can be placed on this type of love, as it's priceless, cherished, and usually eternal. I believe that is the type of love found between the covers of this particular book.
I cried buckets of tears from beginning to end, and I don't regret a second of reading this heartfelt story, despite however puffy, and swollen my eyes, and my face are going to look tomorrow morning. It touched my heart, mind, and soul. Thank you, Linda Cousine, for such a beautifully moving book. The stars in the Heavens must shine brightest at night for someone such as yourself, that can capture a bit of that brilliance in the pages of your book! Thanks for sharing your heart in your story!
I truly felt sorry for Birdy who was busting his butt trying to keep his family together and take care of his children, until some secrets of his own came out. I was frustrated with the secrets but also frustrated with his unwillingness to live a better lifestyle – thanks to Savannah’s trust fund. His association of money with pain drove a huge wedge between them, just as Savannah’s unwillingness to let the money go also drove a wedge between them. Luckily since Savannah still considered Birdy her best friend from childhood, she managed to keep the lines of communication open between them being direct and honest.
Twenty-One Trees was really a fantastic novel and once you realize the significance of the title, I promise that your heart will melt. Although there are numerous tissue-worthy moments, this novel left me with a warm, fuzzy feeling. Birdy and Savannah renewed my faith in love and commitment between two people and their’s is a story I won’t soon forget!
This story takes the reader through a heart wrenching rediscovery of the meaning of life, of love, of healing and overcoming abuse from years long gone by.
The book had quite a few grammatical errors and typos, but not enough that kept me from enjoying the story. The story was well thought out, but still left me with a few questions, especially in regards to the babysitter. But it did hit on mental issues, working through them, and healing. This was a big plus as it is something we need to realize is part of so many people’s lives, not something we need to ignore and sweep under the rug.
