Friday Flashback

from June 2003:

The Puzzle Bark Tree by Stephanie Gertler. Women's fiction.

The Puzzle Bark Tree is an intriguing puzzle. Grace's parents have always been cold and distant, and she has been plagued with nightmares of drowning and a fear of water for as long as she can remember.

Her parents' dual suicide and their bequest to Grace of an island home she'd never known they owned suggest a clue to the answers she needs.

The crisis also puts a spotlight on Grace's shaky marriage, forcing her to contrast it with her sister's happy one. When she travels to the island against her husband's wishes, she finds someone who provides her with some of her answers, as well as the compassion, comfort, friendship, and passion she'd been missing.

Beneath Grace's story of the discovery of her own past is the story of how tragedy changed and shaped the lives of her family, particularly those of her parents.

The Puzzle Bark Tree is intriguing and thought-provoking, making me wonder how different personalities would react to the same tragedy, and particularly how I would react.
