    Loved it!

    18th-century, colonial-america, historical-research, historical-places-events, historical-setting, historical-novel Life was quite different in the mid eighteenth century and it was also in the beginning of a major upheaval. The Tree refers to the English royal edict regarding the status of tall straight trees dedicated to become masts for Royal Navy vessels. This was a practice in England and her colonies, but especially onerous to the American colonists. This book covers a year in the life of a young man in New Hampshire who loses both his parents in rapid succession and becomes the heir to a land grant which includes some of these trees. He learns a lot in this year, including how to read and scribe. An excellent immersion into life before the other events leading to the Boston Tea Party and later the Declaration of Independence. Shamaan Casey is the fantastic narrator for the audiobook. I entered and won this one in a giveaway without expectations.
