This book starts off in medias res. You will wonder from the very first page -- what in the world is going on??? The main character will draw you in as she discovers who she is and who the man was that she married. She will also make you want to head to the kitchen and cook a five course meal! There are no really red hot love scenes but there are more than enough mysteries to keep you enthralled! I enjoyed this book until the end (which left me a little dissappointed but I still recommend this book).
Yes, I would recommend "The Mulberry Tree" to a friend. I enjoyed the book. If you enjoy Jude Deveraux this is a must read!
I hated to turn it off to go to sleep! It was spellbinding. I might even listen again, it was so good
It's all about romance. My favorite.
You have out done yourself. I think I have read all your stories but this is my favorite.

Great character development. I love the small town with everyone in everyone's business. Some strange characters and a great love story.

Love the story. I've listened to it a couple of times. The characters are very believable. I love the wit and sarcasm in the writing.
