The Red Tree by Caitlin R. Kiernan


I loved this book. I highly recommend it. You can view my review here.

From the Amazon product description:

Sarah Crowe left Atlanta, and the remnants of a tumultuous relationship, to live alone in an old house in rural Rhode Island. Within its walls she discovers an unfinished manuscript written by the house's former tenant-a parapsychologist obsessed with the ancient oak growing on a desolate corner of the property. And as the gnarled tree takes root in her imagination, Sarah risks her health and her sanity to unearth a revelation planted centuries ago...

I also suggest you check out more of her work.

I don't often share my reviews with this community. However, in this case I think that the author's list of books that helped shape this story based on her lifetime of reading makes it relevant.
