The Trees Remember is a trilogy of historical novels about a young woman, Rebecca Wagner, in the virgin timber mountains of 1890's central Pennsylvania who aspires to become something more than a farm girl. Her talent, passion, and the mentorship of a Native American healer led Rebecca to attend the new Johns Hopkins Training School for Nurses. After her training, she returns home to care for her neighbors and the "wood hicks" who work in nearby lumber camps where her beloved forests are being stripped to meet the country's insatiable demand for lumber. It’s a coming-of-age story of courage, duty, family, love and loss--with a few long-held secrets revealed along the way.
