Praise for The Forgetting Tree
“Tatjana Soli’s elegant and sensuous prose will keep you spellbound.” —Maria Semple, bestselling author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
"Daring... haunting... A remote citrus ranch can be a crossroads where cultures collide, and those collisions can be life-changing for everyone involved." —Jane Smiley, New York Times Book Review
"The story here is complex and expansive, and Soli’s prose is reminiscent of Eudora Welty’s. Like that writer, Soli’s sentences are tied to the land, and the effect is that as much as this is a story about people, it is also a story about place and the imprint that each makes on the other." —The Daily Beast
"A lush, haunting novel for readers who appreciate ambiguity, this work should establish Soli as a novelist with depth and broad scope." —Library Journal
"Soli has again created characters readers will love and care about. She does so with deceptively simple grace: Their yearnings breeze right into your life... The Forgetting Tree is a journey worth taking." —Book Page
"A lush novel with two fascinating, complicated characters at its heart." —Booklist
“Soli, who made a splash with her debut, The Lotus Eaters, will captivate readers again with this twisting, intriguing tale of a grieving California woman…With her knack for beautiful prose and striking detail, this is a solid follow-up to her debut.” —Publishers Weekly
