Matt had given Lisa a journal before he left, so she could write the happenings in her life while he was away...he didn't want to miss anything in his family's lives. Lisa discovered Mirabelle would also write in a diary while her husband was away, and after being given permission to read it on site, Lisa would then commit her feelings into her journal in the evening. The unicorn tree was Mirabelle's favourite place to sit and watch across the ocean for a sight of the sails, which would signify a ship coming into port. She would sit there daily, but no-one in the current day had been able to find it. But Lisa was sure she could find Mirabelle's unicorn tree, she was determined to do so.
When the Coast Guard let Lisa and her parents know that Matt's ship, the Northern Star, was missing at sea, because of a massive hurricane in the area, once again the parallels of Lisa and her family's journey, and Mirabelle's was supreme. With the worry and stress of not knowing where Matt and the crew were, if they were indeed even alive, Lisa spent as much time as she could at the Manor, feeling that Mirabelle was beside her, helping her to have the strength to keep going....
I loved this book! The characters are beautifully crafted, and the story remarkable. It was a real page turner, with me reading it in only a few hours. From the very beginning, everything about this book is wonderful. I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
