When you climb a tree, the first thing you do is to hold on tight… Thirty-four-year-old Harry Crane works as an analyst for the US Forest Service. When his wife dies suddenly, he is unable to cope. Leaving his job and his old life behind, Harry makes his way to the remote woods of northeastern Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains, determined to lose himself. But fate intervenes in the form of a fiercely determined young girl named Oriana. She and her mother, Amanda, are struggling to pick up the pieces from their own tragedy—Amanda stoically holding it together while Oriana roams the forest searching for answers. And in Oriana’s magical, willful mind, she believes that Harry is the key to righting her world. Now it’s time for Harry to let go… After taking up residence in the woods behind Amanda’s house, Harry reluctantly agrees to help Oriana in a ludicrous scheme to escape his tragic past. In so doing, the unlikeliest of elements—a wolf, a stash of gold coins, a fairy tale called The Grum’s Ledger and a wise old librarian named Olive—come together to create a golden adventure that will fulfill Oriana’s wildest dreams and open Harry’s heart to a whole new life. Harry’s Trees is an uplifting story about the redeeming power of friendship and love and the magic to be found in life’s most surprising adventures.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Part fairy tale and, at the same time, heartbreakingly realistic, Cohen’s third novel will entrance readers from page one, and by the end, even skeptics will agree that magic can still be found in the most unlikely places and in the most surprising people if only we’re willing to look.” Library Journal (starred review)
“In Cohen’s capable hands, the unlikely teamwork between an optimistic child and a wary adult makes for a tender tale of first loves and second chances.” Booklist
“Set in rural Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains, this redemptive tale will speak to the hearts of those who’ve lost a loved one…Don’t let the term fairy tale scare you away, for, as Cohen says, ‘Enchantment is a part of everyday existence.’ Oh, and it’s also a chuckleworthy story.” Kirkus Reviews
“Written with a vivid cinematographic eye and ear for black humor…Irreverent and boisterous, a novel about loneliness, love, and the basic human needs of even the most unlikely.” Washington Times (Seattle) on The Man in the Window
“Jon Cohen conjures magic, weaving a gentle romantic fantasy of piercing and eccentric beauty.” Boston Globe on The Man in the Window
“An offbeat love story…alternately deeply moving and laugh-aloud funny.” Good Housekeeping on The Man in the Window
