For fans of Ruth Hogan’s The Keeper of Lost Things, Jon Cohen's Harry's Trees is a feel-good novel about friendship, love, healing and the unexpected magical connections that bind us together.


A grieving widower, a determined girl, a courageous librarian and a mysterious book come together in an uplifting tale of love, loss, friendship and redemption.

Thirty-four-year-old Harry Crane works as an analyst for the US Forest Service. When his wife dies suddenly, Harry, despairing, retreats north to lose himself in the remote woods of the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. But fate intervenes in the form of a fiercely determined young girl named Oriana. She and her mother, Amanda, are struggling to pick up the pieces from their own tragic loss of Oriana’s father. Discovering Harry while roaming the forest, Oriana believes that he holds the key to righting her world.

Harry reluctantly agrees to help Oriana carry out an astonishing scheme inspired by a book given to her by the town librarian, Olive Perkins. Together, Harry and Oriana embark on a golden adventure that will fulfill Oriana’s wild dream—and ultimately open Harry’s heart to new life.

"Harry's Trees is superbly plotted, and worth its weight in gold."-Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

"This is a story about ... the power of the human spirit to soar above tragedy and reunite with joy. Don't let the term fairy tale scare you away, for, as Cohen says, Enchantment is a part of everyday existence. Oh, and it's also a chuckleworthy story." -Kirkus Reviews

"When a young girl asks you to believe in fairy tales, sometimes you just have to obey. In Cohen's capable hands, the unlikely teamwork between an optimistic child and a wary adult makes for a tender tale of first loves and second chances."-Booklist, starred review

"Part fairy tale and, at the same time, heartbreakingly realistic, Cohen's third novel will entrance readers from page one, and by the end, even skeptics will agree that magic can still be found in the most unlikely places and in the most surprising people if only we're willing to look."-Library Journal, starred review

"Life, death, love, loneliness, and grief are the building blocks of Jon Cohen's wondrous new novel, along with nonstop action, humor and a broad cast of characters whose actions converge like a perfectly crafted jigsaw puzzle." -BookPage
