"Do I have a child?" Julia DeSmit knew she would face the question eventually, but she didn't expect it now. At twenty-four, she is finally content with the way her life has unfolded. A single mother to her son and young brother, she works at the local grocery store while chipping away at a two-year degree. All her free time is spent with her unorthodox family-her boys, her grandmother, and her boyfriend of five years. It's not perfect, but Julia is happier than ever. So when she receives the cryptic e-mail from her son's father, Julia's world is turned upside down.
Beneath the Night Tree by Nicole Baart is one of those books that draws the readers into its world to the point that they don't notice the passage of time. It's a drama for the undramatic, a romance for the unromantic, and realistic fiction for those who prefer fantasy. It's a book anyone past age 15 could pick up and relate to. It's about living in the present while facing the future and dealing with the past.
Beneath the Night Tree tells the story of Julia DeSmit, a single mom in her mid-twenties who has many choices to make but a crippling fear of making a bad decision. She's in turmoil over whether or not to follow Michael her Prince Charming-type boyfriend to Iowa City with her five-year-old, and leave her grandmother and half-brother behind at the farm. To further complicate things, her son's father reenters Julia's life with a sudden email. Julia must learn not to lean on herself, but to, as Proverbs 3:5-6 directs, lean on God.
Baart tells Julia's story in a convincing way, causing the reader to see every character from Julia to her ex as a real person. Baart writes with imagery and a poetic flare uncommon in modern novels. Though several character interactions walk the line between believable and unbelievable, the story is overall a strong one, its message is sound, and Baart's writing is solid. Beneath the Night Tree is an enjoyable story with an encouraging ending. Meredith Sell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
