Usually when I write my book reviews, I write them as soon as I have finished reading. I finished the Forgetting Tree, by Tatjana Soli, over one week ago and have since been mulling over what to write.
The Forgetting Tree is a story about Claire, a woman who has been diagnosed with cancer. She hires Minna to help her with this stage in her life, a woman with a mysterious past. Claire is a Californian ranch owner and I enjoyed the descriptions of ranch life. I also enjoyed the suspense of not knowing whether Minna was a friend or a foe as the story unfolds.
What I didn’t like was the lingering question in the back of my mind … just what was the point of this story? Am I too dumb to get it? I think so. Maybe someone will read this book and enlighten me….I would truly appreciate it.
