The remarkable novel The Tree by Catholic author Denise Mallett (daughter of Mark Mallett) is now available on Kindle! And just in time as the sequel The Blood prepares for press this Fall. If you haven’t read The Tree, you’re missing an unforgettable experience. This is what reviewers had to say:
Mallett has penned a truly epic human and theological tale of adventure, love, intrigue, and the search for ultimate truth and meaning. If this book is ever made into a movie—and it should be—the world need only surrender to the truth of the everlasting message. —Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, author & speaker
From the first word to the last I was captivated, suspended between awe and amazement. How did one so young write such intricate plot lines, such complex characters, such compelling dialogue? How had a mere teenager mastered the craft of writing, not just with proficiency, but with depth of feeling? How could she treat profound themes so deftly without the least bit of preachiness? I am still in awe. Clearly the hand of God is in this gift. —Janet Klasson, author of The Joy of Penance blog
Exquisitely written… From the very first pages of the prologue, I could not put it down!—Janelle Reinhart, Christian recording artist
From the moment I picked up The Tree, I could not put it down… What most impressed me, however, was the depth of knowledge and understanding of the human person that Mallett shows in her characters. A great story and treasure. —Jennifer M.
This is my daughter’s first novel. I was expecting to read it, pat her on the head and say, “Good job, dear.” Instead, I found myself in utter awe that this came out of her mind, her prayer-life. It is one of the most moving novels I have read in a long time and the characters and story have never left me. Finally, Christian fare that isn’t cheesy. I can honestly say I can’t wait for the sequel. —Mark Mallett, author of TheNowWord.com and The Final Confrontation
