The Joining Tree
The Joining Tree is the fourth and final book in Cara’s story in the Blackthorne Forest series. Each book is an important part of the years she spends growing up, learning who she is, and where she belongs, both in the human world she was born into, and the magical world she has inherited from her father.
This book begins in Cara’s senior year where unexpected heartbreak has sent her into a deep depression. None of her Elven traits are any help at all. In fact, being a Halfling makes the situation even worse.
She throws herself into her artwork as a way to deal with her broken heart, and gets through senior year with a little help from her friends, especially Sean McKay, who intends to win back the girl he’s always loved.
Her dream of attending a prestigious Art School becomes a reality, but will success in the art world allow her to forget the one man who has her heart?
In the Elven world, once you give your heart, there’s no going back.
