Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite


The Witness Tree is a work of fiction in the women’s literature
genre penned by author Terri Morrison Kaiser. It is aimed at mature
readers, owing to the presence of some violence and moderate
sexual content. The book follows two women in the Foley family
across two generations after the discovery of human remains leads
Helen Foley to confront the decisions that her mother Esther made
to find a better life for them both. The book tells the stories of both
Esther, as she commits an act of mad desperation that forever
scars the family history, and Helen, as she is forced to confront the
truth of where her family came from and what they have done.


Author Terri Morrison Kaiser has delivered a highly engaging
literary fiction novel that features family history at the forefront of
suspense in a very uniquely crafted way. One of the most enjoyable
things about this novel was Kaiser’s ability to craft well-thought-out
and relatable characters. Both Esther and Helen are a joy to follow
and I particularly loved the story being narrated by both characters
which I felt offered a deeper insight into the past and present. The
story tells a beautiful tale that demonstrates the high and lows of
life whilst still sending an overall message of hope. The Witness
Tree is a story that will appeal to a wide audience as it has
elements of romance, mystery, and history, which are tied together
masterfully. I would not hesitate to recommend The Witness Tree to
fans of books that offer an emotional and thought-provoking
journey, and those readers looking for a vivid and imaginative
story.
