Glory Solomon, a young widow, holds tight to her memories while she struggles to hold on to her Central California farm. She makes ends meet by hosting weddings in the chapel her husband had built under their 200-year-old white oak tree, known locally as Solomon's Oak.

Fourteen-year-old Juniper McGuire is the lone survivor of a family decimated by her sister's disappearance. She arrives on Glory's doorstep, pierced, tattooed, angry, and homeless. When Glory's husband, Dan, was alive, they took in foster children, but Juniper may be more than she can handle alone.

Joseph Vigil is a former Albuquerque police officer and crime-lab photographer who was shot during a meth lab bust that took the life of his best friend. Now disabled and in constant pain, he arrives in California to fulfill his dream of photographing the state's giant trees, including Solomon's Oak.

In Jo-Ann Mapson's deeply felt, wise, and gritty novel, these three broken souls will find in each other an unexpected comfort, the bond of friendship, and a second chance to see the miracles of everyday life.

    " I really enjoyed this story of three very different people, all grieving, but brought together and offered hope at one very special place, Solomon's Oak. Mapson is great at bringing characters to life. I loved the growing bond she develops between Glory, the recent widow, Juniper McGuire, the awkward teen whose life was shattered when her sister disappeared, and Joseph Vigil, the physically and pyschologically wounded Albuquerque cop. I would recommend Mapson to readers who like Elizabeth Berg or Anne Rivers Siddons. "

    " I stumbled across this book on Amazon and it was only $.99 for my Kindle so I thought what the heck. It turned out to be a really good story about a woman who had suddenly lost her husband, a teenage girl who needed a foster home, and a man who had been shot as a Police Crime investigator--all taking place in small mountain town in CA. The author did a great job of character development, then weaving them all together--it was a nice read. "
