About the Book

Solomon's Oak

by Jo-Ann Mapson

Solomon's Oak is the story of three people who have suffered losses that changed their lives forever: Glory Solomon, a young widow who struggles to hold on to her Central California farm; fourteen-year-old Juniper McGuire, who arrives on Glory's doorstep, pierced, tattooed, angry, and homeless; and Joseph Vigil, a former Albuquerque police officer now disabled and in constant pain, who comes to California to fulfill his dream of photographing the state's giant trees, including the two-hundred-year-old Solomon's Oak on Glory's farm. In this deeply felt, wise, and gritty novel, these three broken souls will find in each other an unexpected comfort, and a second chance to see the miracles of everyday life.
