The Year The Trees Didn't Die is the story of how author Mary J. Koral and her husband Ken managed to cope with the challenges of making an interracial adoptive family. Strangers ask their children if they speak English, know their birthparents, and realize how lucky they are to live in America. They watch as those children move from happy to confused and angry, rebel, and make terrifying choices. Laughter leaves and fear is a constant companion. How will the family survive? Will the family survive?
Equal parts heart-wrenching and uplifting, The Year The Trees Didn't Die tells of loss on every level imaginable: loss of identity, loss of control, and of a mother who promised to ''exchange loss for love...'' Unflinching in its honesty and rawness, it is a haunting and remarkable story that is unforgettable.
L'autore: Mary Koral grew up in a small town in northwestern PA. She currently lives in Ann Arbor, MI. Her writing, including parts of this book, has appeared in the Alaska Quarterly Review, Tusculum Review, Diverse Voices Quarterly and other journals.
