Part eco fiction, part family saga, Greenwood by Michael Christie follows the story of the ill-fated Greenwood family through several generations. It starts in a dystopian future where fires and infestations have ravaged the land leaving only a few trees surviving, then rewinds back to the early 20th century to tease out the family history and secrets. 

Along with environmental themes, this book also delves into the question of family; who we are and how important are family roots and legacies? 

The suspenseful plot will draw you in and the beautiful writing will make you want to stay.

For readers who enjoyed The Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and The Overstory by Richard Powers
