As Told By A Fig Tree…
The Island of Missing Trees is undoubtedly one of my lifetime favorites. Cyprus, is an island divided, in turmoil, and people and nature alike are suffering years of unrest, escalating violence and the atrocities of an ethnic war. Cultural clashes, national identity and extremism, forbidden love, family and friendship, loss, survival and renewal as well as the connectedness of nature are themes tied together by a unique and unlikely storyteller who was witness to it all. I loved this beautifully written, lyrical novel. It will stick with me for a long time.

For those who like audiobooks, I strongly suggest the audiobook version of this novel. The narrator is exceptional, further enhancing this amazing read.
