I love Jo-Ann Mapson. She writes rich and complex female characters. Solomon's Oak is no exception. We meet Glory Solomon alone on Solomon's Ranch after the death of her husband. The oak in Solomon's Oak is a gorgeous white oak that isn't suppose to grow in that part of California. To make ends meet Glory is renting out the chapel her beloved Dan built as a wedding chapel. Her first wedding party, pirates. Adding to Glory's concerns is Juniper McGuire a tattooed and face pierced fourteen year old girl who is mad at the world. Can Juniper help heal Glory's grief? Can Glory help Juniper get her anger under control?
