Publisher's Summary

Planting the tree of liberty is never easy.

Abe is haunted by the sudden loss of both of his parents. Left to manage a New-Hampshire land grant and its troublesome Royal Navy mast trees with only his eccentric aunt to guide him, he finds comfort in a new friendship with Betty, a decidedly odd neighbor. Defying the Royal Governor’s crackdowns and his aunt’s commands, Abe makes choices that put him on a collision course with both. With rebellion in the air, Abe must escape detection by the Governor’s agents and solve the puzzle of Betty’s past in order to secure his future.

The Tree is Hedbor’s standalone novel set in New-Hampshire from his Tales from a Revolution series, in which he examines the American War of Independence as it unfolded in each of the colonies. If you like enthralling stories of familiar events from unfamiliar viewpoints, you’ll love The Tree.

A Series that Keeps Getting Better!

Tales of the Revolution is an extraordinary series. Life in the US leading to and sometimes including the Revolutionary War.
I had a fascinating teacher in high school who brought Ancient History alive with tidbits of stories and obscure facts that were intriguing and made the lessons fun and lead to riveting discussions - in a non-nerd like way.
Lars weaves the same magic with these historical fiction tales.
The Tree is emotional, real, and deep.
The hours flew by. Abe is a character who quickly tugs heart strings and grows stronger as he makes decisions and eventually perseveres.

I strongly encourage readers and listeners to try this. You don’t have to love - or even like - history or America to enjoy them.
I’m equally pleased Shamaan Casey narrates the books. He has a strong and mesmerizing voice that complements the series.

Amazing Book

The more I listen to this authors book with this narrator the more I enjoy their books. The author does an amazing job with historical facts combining it with stories that we all love to hear. The narrator is amazing..... his voice is so smooth and very easy to listen to. I swear I could listen to him all day and night. He brings the characters to life and brings you into their lives to live their adventures with them. The combination of these 2, author and narrator, brings us an amazing book. Great book to add to anyone's library especially if you are interested in history.

Great!

18th-century, colonial-america, historical-research, historical-places-events, historical-setting, historical-novel

Life was quite different in the mid eighteenth century and it was also in the beginning of a major upheaval. The Tree refers to the English royal edict regarding the status of tall straight trees dedicated to become masts for Royal Navy vessels. This was a practice in England and her colonies, but especially onerous to the American colonists. This book covers a year in the life of a young man in New Hampshire who loses both his parents in rapid succession and becomes the heir to a land grant which includes some of these trees. He learns a lot in this year, including how to read and scribe. An excellent immersion into life before the other events leading to the Boston Tea Party and later the Declaration of Independence.
Shamaan Casey is the fantastic narrator for the audiobook.
I entered and won this one in a giveaway without expectations.

Exciting historical fiction

This book involves a young boy whose parents die before he becomes of age. He is left in the care of his aunt who is very strict. In an effort to make the most possible money from the sale of timber they take the risk of cutting trees that had been set aside for the King. When corrupt officials decide to make an example of the people involved a series of events begin that will test the boy and those around him. These events were based on historical events prior to the American Revolution and depict the extremes people went to just to survive.

There is also the fact that the young boy meets a girl who has suffered even more than he has. He must learn to grow up into the man he is soon to become in order to survive and provide for a family.

This book was smoothly written and flowed well. It was a pleasure to listen to with the capable narration.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Yet another tale from the colonial time

Once again Lars D. H. Hedbor weaves another story taking place during the Colonial Era.

Abe lost his mother at a young age and then his father years later, leaving him manage a land grant which supplied the Royal Navy mast trees with the help of his aunt to guide him. Betty lost her parents and brother at a very tender age and been on her own since. Both lived closed to one another but did not know it until a pesty bird that belong to Betty caught Abe's attention and a friendship (and then more) forms. Abe has to make a decision on what he should and should not do regarding the land grant.

This was a great story and as usual Shamaan Casey does a fantastic job being each character to life.

History Brought To Life

On the surface this is an interesting tale of family tragedy, coming of age and love but the backdrop of British colonial America adds an additional dimension. The characters are well imagined and plot wonderfully narrated creating a very atmospheric experience for the listener. This audiobook was a very pleasant surprise.
