Book Review | Michael Phillip Cash | The Hanging Tree

The Hanging Tree: A Novella

This book was sent to me through Bostick Communications by the author Michael Phillip Cash. I received this book for free in return for an honest review. 

Author: Michael Phillip Cash
Title: The Hanging Tree - A Novella
Genre: Horror, Paranormal, Novella, Mystery, Witches, Ghosts, Young Adult, Fiction, Historical Fiction

Synopsis: Seventeen year old Arielle is at a crossroads in her life. Disenchanted with her father, she is testing the boundaries of his trust by dating someone he does not approve. Under the moonlit sky in Long Island, Arielle and her boyfriend meet under the infamous hanging tree. The couple's destiny is rooted to the five spirits in the tree whose lives and deaths are determined by an ancient curse. Will her future be determined by the past or will her choices alter the course of her life?

Review: This is an excellent read that I found myself lost in. I could not bring myself to put this book down so I spent days with my head in this book. I will be re-reading this book many times over for many years to come. I like how the story line switches between the past and the present with ease. This book has an interesting story line that follows a family and a curse on their family name through many generations. This story shows how making bad or good choices can have an impact on life. This story brings the living and the dead into close proximity and then at the end the dead and the living actually meet. The meeting of the dead and the living brings and end to the curse and the long dead went off into the afterlife. 

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
