Karen Sommerfield has been hiding from life-immersing herself in a high-powered job-until the day the company downsizes her out of a job and the doctor tells her that she may have cancer. It's a double blow that sends Karen on a search for herself in the last place she ever thought to look: Grandma Rose's old farm.
As Karen's hectic schedule falls away, she opens up to the unexpected. In the quiet of the Missouri Ozarks, she hears the soft, secret language of the sycamore trees, and discovers answers and a joy to make her life complete.

Lisa Wingate writes both Accent novels and contemporary romances for NAL. She lives with her husband and two sons in the central Texas hill country, where she is a popular inspirational speaker, writing instructor, and magazine columnist.From Booklist:
On the same day that her doctor tells her that her cancer might have returned, Karen Sommerfield looses her high-powered job at the company that she helped build. When her sister, Kate, calls from her rural home in Missouri, she is surprised that Karen is willing to come for a family reunion. Kate's farm was originally their Grandma Rose's, and Kate left her successful job to take care of their dying grandmother while Karen and her pilot husband, James, were living their driven life in Boston. Now that everything is at risk, Karen returns home to her family and rediscovers the joy she misplaced while climbing the ladder to success. She also meets Dell, a neighbor's child, who, although impoverished and living in dire straits, connects with Karen through music. Wingate presents another of her positive and uplifting books, which include Tending Roses (2001), tales of hope in the midst of turmoil that are inspirational without being preachy. Patty Engelmann
