Now disabled and in constant pain, he came to California to photograph the giant trees of the state.Jo-Ann Mapson's deeply felt, wise and warm portrayal of broken souls finding their way back to humanity shows how these three people - along with a host of dogs, horses and goats -enter and transform each other's lives.

Recenzii

'In Solomon's Oak, we see how some things - like massive oaks, and unshakeable love - can stand the test of time. I love the way Jo-Ann Mapson writes about family - how the roots we put down are the ones that ultimately hold us together. Actually, let me correct myself: I just love the way Jo-Ann Mapson writes, period'
'Mapson [shows us] the world as we hope it is - a world in which flawed people can be basically healthy, and even pain has a richness to it ... One of the most gifted writers of the contemporary American West'
'As always, Jo-Ann Mapson creates a quirky, lovable cast of characters as real as your next door neighbors. Every woman will see someone she knows in her novels'
'Mapson creates characters so real you could recognize them coming down the road'
