Can a tree really be evil?

In a quaint English village just outside of Cambridge, a picturesque cottage on a cozy side street is for rent.  But there’s one problem: a twisted, leafless, foreboding mulberry tree dominates the back yard.  The tree exudes hatred and despair and, according to legend, is responsible for the disappearance of two girls on their eleventh birthdays.  Yet 10-year-old Immy and her parents are practical, science-minded people with no tolerance for hocus-pocus, so they rent the house anyway.  But will it turn out to be a deadly mistake?

This is a very British-flavored chiller with plenty of ominous details – a creepy schoolyard chant, a kindly though unsettling neighbor, a librarian who knows more than she’s willing to say.  Read this book and discover the truth about that disturbing mulberry tree.
