The Wishing Trees

by John Shors

Master storyteller John Shors is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sales of his new book to the Arbor Day Foundation, and hopes his novel “inspires readers to go out and plant their own ‘wish tree.’”

“The Wishing Trees” Book Cover

Called “an affecting and sensitively rendered study of grief and loss, the healing power of artistic expression, and the life-altering rewards of travel to distant lands,”* The Wishing Trees tells the tale of Ian, a former high-tech executive. A year after the death of his wife, Kate, Ian travels with their ten-year–old daughter, Mattie, across Asia.

Along the way, they leave paper “wishes” in ancient trees as symbols of their connection to Kate and their dreams for the future.

We appreciate Shors’s dedication to trees and nature, and thank him for his generous donation to the earth.

The Wishing Trees is on sale now.
