The Courage Tree – by Diane Chamberlain (2001)

The Courage Tree

“The Courage Tree” is the story of two mothers and two daughters whose lives intersect. Janine has an 8-year-old daughter, Sophie, who has gone to summer camp for the first time, despite having kidney failure. On the way home from camp, Sophie goes missing. The other mother is Zoe, who has a grown daughter, Marti, who is a prison convict. Zoe has orchestrated an elaborate scheme to free her daughter, who she is certain is innocent.

Both mothers love their daughters unconditionally and would do anything for them. But the actions of one mother may mean death for the other mother’s daughter. Throughout the story, the question is: how far would you go for your child? To say more about the story-line would give away too much of the plot. Suffice it to say this was a book I had a hard time putting down.
