The Treehouse by Randi Triant is a gripping novel that explores the themes of love lost, and one woman’s journey to reconquer the very essence of her motherhood — or womanhood. Camilla Thompson has been apart from Nico, her son, for two years now. Now when Nico and his mother go on a week’s vacation, Camilla takes the opportunity to make a gift to her son. She drives to the house where her son is living and starts building a tree house for him.
But things quickly change as she understands that wanting to build a tree house is quite different from actually building one, especially if one isn’t a builder. But help comes from unexpected places and readers are introduced to interesting characters as the project comes along. But the arrival of her Department Chair could change everything, and what started as a promising adventure could end with Camilla losing her career.
This story is so well-written that the reader can’t help but be gripped by the voice of the narrator. Randi Triant has a unique gift for exploring the heart of a woman and leading readers into the deep emotions of the characters. It’s hard not to like Camilla and it’s even harder not to notice the connection between Camilla and Audrey. The author weaves powerful themes like love and family and parenting into the narrative in a seamless manner, conveying powerful lessons without missing anything on the narrative. The Treehouse is fast-paced, emotionally intense, and utterly captivating. You’ll love this story, but you’ll love the characters even more.
