Irene and Nate Stanley are living a quiet and contented life with their two children, Bliss and Shep, on their family farm in southern Illinois when Nate suddenly announces he’s been offered a job as a deputy sheriff in Oregon. Irene fights her husband. She does not want to uproot her family and has deep misgivings about the move. Nevertheless, the family leaves, and they are just settling into their life in Oregon’s high desert when the unthinkable happens. Fifteen-year-old Shep is shot and killed during an apparent robbery in their home. The murderer, a young mechanic with a history of assault, robbery, and drug-related offenses, is caught and sentenced to death. Shep’s murder sends the Stanley family into a tailspin, with each member attempting to cope with the tragedy in his or her own way. Irene’s approach is to live, week after week, waiting for Daniel Robbin’s execution and the justice she feels she and her family deserve. Those weeks turn into months and then years. Ultimately, faced with a growing sense that Robbin’s death will not stop her pain, Irene takes the extraordinary and clandestine step of reaching out to her son’s killer. The two forge an unlikely connection that remains a secret from her family and friends. Years later, Irene receives the notice that she had craved for so long—Daniel Robbin has stopped his appeals and will be executed within a month. This announcement shakes the very core of the Stanley family. Irene, it turns out, isn’t the only one with a shocking secret to hide. As the execution date nears, the Stanleys must face difficult truths and find a way to come to terms with the past. Dramatic, wrenching, and ultimately uplifting, The Crying Tree is an unforgettable story of love and redemption, the unbreakable bonds of family, and the transformative power of forgiveness.

Irene Stanley thought her world had come to an end when her 15-year-old son, Shep, was murdered in a robbery at their Oregon home. Daniel Robbin, who had spent his teenage years in and out of trouble, gave himself up to the police and was imprisoned in the State Penitentiary. Now, eighteen years later, Robbin is placed on Death Row awaiting a date for his execution. Irene's husband, Nate, has demons from the past of his own which he needs to face, and Shep's sister, Bliss, quickly learns that she too has a part to play in the healing of her family shattered by the tragedy. Irene, having reached the brink of suicide, comes to the realization that to survive she needs to overcome her grief and her hate for Robbin, and that she must face the secrets that she suspects surround Shep's murder. She turns full circle, defying both her family and the church, and finds that she is not only capable of forgiveness for the man who murdered her son, but also she comes to terms with understanding much more about events that happened that fateful afternoon back in Carlton. And perhaps the most painful realization of all, how little they as a family understood Shep. 'For anyone who has ever wondered how forgiveness is possible, even when the pain is overwhelming, wonder no more. Resting Place takes you on a journey you won't soon forget' Sister Helen Prejean author of Dead Man Walking ‘If The Crying Tree doesn’t make you cry, you have better control over your blubbing than I do. This is an astonishing debut novel.’ Richard Madeley, Woman’s Own ‘If you enjoy reading Jodi Picoult, you’ll love Naseem Rakha. These are big themes for a new writer but Rakha knows what she’s doing . . . The Crying Tree is, quite simply, a terrific story.’ Judy Finnigan, Woman’s Own

The Crying Tree Diary is a cradle-to-grave diary of a battered child. It is the voice of this work that makes it so compelling. At first, the voice is inexperienced, the words raw and discordant like the beginning of a storm. The storm gathers; the voice becomes rhythmic in the daily telling of the main character’s life. Finally, the voice emerges as glimmer on the horizon, and the reader is assured the storm will pass when Julie Anna looks beyond the clouds and prays for peace.

In the summer of 1992, Christopher Morgan, a farmer, joined a pen-friend scheme whose aim was to give prisoners a window on the outside world. He was allocated Tom Shannon, a lifer, inside for murder. Their correspondence started haltingly, and was almost aborted before it had begun. The two men could hardly be more different, one an educated liberal countryman, the other a hardened con. Yet after the tentative start, a strong and honest friendship developed between them in this exchange of letters, which is as touching as it is revealing. Never intended for publication when they were written, the spontaneity and authenticity of the letters in Invisible Crying Tree is all the more powerful and convincing. Whilst portraying the grim realities of prison life in Britain today, they also reassure us that friendship and respect can prevail in the most unlikely circumstances.

The Ceremony at the Crying Tree depicts the life of a typical Sinixt Indian family living along the upper Columbia River during the last half and the first half of the nineteenth/twentieth centuries. This family traveled from Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, each summer in their sturgeon-nosed canoes to Kettle Falls on the Columbia to fish for salmon. Their way of life was ended when the US government built the Grand Coulee Dam and the backwater covered the falls. The salmon could no longer swim from the ocean up the river to spawn. That affected fourteen tribes whose high-protein diet of salmon was effectively ended.
