    One thought on “The Unicorn Tree”

    1. The Unicorn Tree takes place on the East Coast of the United States where it is common to see large estates that have been restored and are now open to the public. These places exude history that includes customs, styles, furniture, way of life, jobs, as well as the politics of the day. Just like the main character of 17-year-old Lisa Duncan, many schools assign a class to tour these homes and write reports about them. Just like the book's fictional estate of Mirabelle Manor, many house museums [...]

    2. On task to complete a high school assignment of a historical site, Lisa Duncan tours ocean-front Mirabelle Manor. Built by a sea captain, Lisa is drawn to the portrait of the wife he adored, beautiful Mirabelle. It's no wonder, in the painting, Mirabelle is watching her and somehow draws Lisa to look at a diary on display. Lisa reads the page that's open about THE UNICORN TREE, believed to protect ships. Lisa thinks immediately to her brother who is now on a commemorative voyage across the Atlan [...]

    3. It is fascinating to me how Cynthia Collins has managed to intertwine a teenager's avid curiosity, family trauma, true life historical characters, and old ships together with such finesse. Drawing the reader immediately into the developing parallel issues of her modern day family and two ancient characters, the author's extremely well-written language also keeps the pages turning. Billed as a young adult book, this is actually a work that ALL ages will enjoy. I highly recommend it.

    4. An old manor, a curious journal, family crisis and suspense - a great plot. A book for teenagers and adults alike. A recommended read.

    5. This story is perfect for the middle grade set, nothing offensive or graphic. That being said, this novel is great for when you need a hug. It's a very uplifting story. * giveaway*

    6. Lisa Duncan was with her three friends at Mirabelle Manor. The high school students were deciding on an assignment and had chosen the historic site for their report. They each chose different aspects for their topics, and as seventeen-year-old Lisa’s older brother, Matt had just left in a recently rebuilt clipper for a commemorative journey across the Atlantic; and Mirabelle, over one hundred years earlier would wait for her husband, Captain Hutchings to return from his voyages, the relevance [...]

Four friends including Lisa decide to write about different aspects of the Manor.The rebuilt clipper North Star with Lisa's brother Matt on board is sailing across the Atlantic and back during the same months the captain's [...]

    8. “She could see in the library from the stairs and realized she was looking directly at Mirabelle’s portrait. It wasn’t her imagination. Mirabelle was watching her.“She stopped suddenly, her legs unable to continue up the stairs. Her hand tightened around the banister as she tried to steady herself. She wanted to turn away, but Mirabelle’s eyes silently held her gaze with an insistence impossible to ignore.”This is a fascinating book, for high schoolers as well as adults! Cynthia Coll [...]

    9. I received this Young Adult book as a winner and am thrilled to recommend it for any age group.
