Only she who holds the key will unearth the secrets of the Remembering Tree. 

Still trying to pick up the pieces after the sudden death of her husband, Gemma Clayborn takes her fifteen-year-old daughter, Opal, and heads for Beacon Shores, a tiny coastal town in the state of Washington. Her daughter is angry at the world, and Gemma is simply trying to survive. She plans to restore Moonstone House, the ancestral estate left to her by her grandmother.  

When Gemma arrives in Beacon Shores, Moonstone House immediately captures her heart. She remembers spending summers there as a child, back before her mother decided they could never go there again. Eric Johnson, the contractor restoring the home, piques Gemma’s interest as well. She feels a strange connection to him, almost as if they already know one another.  

What intrigues Gemma the most, however, is the strange and beautiful redbud tree in the front yard. The tree seems to know things, whispering to her, urging her to uncover the secrets of the past. The discovery of an old journal leads Gemma down the rabbit hole, into the pages of her great-great-grandmother’s life, one that eerily parallels her own. She begins to unravel the story of the women in her family, a history she could have never imagined.  

Will Gemma figure out the secrets of Moonstone House before it’s too late? Or are some things better left buried in the pages of the journal?

My thoughts about The Remembering Tree ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"'What's that, Mama?' The little girl scrunched up her forehead and shielded her eyes with her hand, blocking the sunlight."

This book grabbed me from the very first chapter. I knew right away that this was going to be a exciting, intriguing story. What's not to love about that mysterious, magical, somewhat eerie beginning? I was hooked!

Gemma, and her daughter Opal, have their hands full when they move back to the old family home. The place needs renovation and updating. But little did they know that some things can't be changed and what is destined to happen, will happen, whether they like it or not. Gemma's discovery of old journals take her on a journey into the past and brings it colliding with the present. 

This book was intriguing and kept me going until the exciting, intense ending. I love the direction that Mason takes her readers in her stories—directions I wasn't expecting—but ones that I love all the same. And Mason's words are so beautifully written that it so easy to get lost in the story as the words flow. 

I highly recommend The Remembering Tree, especially if you love an intense, beautifully written paranormal tale that will stick with you for a long time. 

I received a copy of The Remembering Tree from Hot Tree Promotions and this is my honest opinion of the book.
