Publisher's Summary

When you climb a tree, the first thing you do is to hold on tight....

Thirty-four-year-old Harry Crane works as an analyst for the US Forest Service. When his wife dies suddenly, he is unable to cope. Leaving his job and his old life behind, Harry makes his way to the remote woods of northeastern Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains, determined to lose himself. But fate intervenes in the form of a fiercely determined young girl named Oriana. She and her mother, Amanda, are struggling to pick up the pieces from their own tragedy - Amanda stoically holding it together while Oriana roams the forest searching for answers. And in Oriana’s magical, willful mind, she believes that Harry is the key to righting her world.

Now it’s time for Harry to let go....

After taking up residence in the woods behind Amanda’s house, Harry reluctantly agrees to help Oriana in a ludicrous scheme to escape his tragic past. In so doing, the unlikeliest of elements - a wolf, a stash of gold coins, a fairy tale called The Grum’s Ledger and a wise old librarian named Olive - come together to create a golden adventure that will fulfill Oriana’s wildest dreams and open Harry’s heart to a whole new life.

Harry’s Trees is an uplifting story about the redeeming power of friendship and love and the magic to be found in life’s most surprising adventures.

"Josh Bloomberg narrates this charming story with a balance of heart, humor, and hope.... Bloomberg energetically portrays the large cast of eccentric characters." (AudioFile)

Fabulous performance!

Narrator did a wonderfully convincing job of many different characters and accents —everything from an old lady to a middle aged rural guy to a 10 year old girl. He made the story come alive and kept me interested in what was going to happen next. Because the voices were so real it was like watching a movie since I could imagine the characters in my head. Makes all the difference . Story had some nice messages for all age readers as well.

A Wonderful Audiobook (and a GREAT read)

I loved this audiobook and as I had the story in book form, loved reading it as well. The story involves the unexpected deaths of spouses, grief, guilt, redemption, magic, and trees, magnificent trees. The characters are very well developed and the setting magnificent. The listener or reader is transported to the world of a forest which includes a many windowed treehouse. I stopped in the middle of listening to call my daughter and text my brother to get both the book and audio version! The narrator does a superb job of reading. I am left with the wish that I, too, an old lady like Olive, could sit at her feet and listen to HER read.....

A good story with lots of elements!

I listened to this story as one of our selections in my book club! I enjoyed it, but there were a few slow parts where I had a hard time continuing. Even though this happened, I was able to get into it and really enjoyed the rest of the book.

It had many different elements of fiction! There was some magic, some sadness, some love, and so much more. I really enjoyed the characters - some more than others! I hope you enjoy the book too!

Boring, fairy tale.

The “twists and turns” of this story were cliche convolutions. The epilogue made me smile, but the rest of the story was too long and too lame. Don’t waste your time.
