About the Book

The Witness Tree

Genre: Historical, Romance Publisher: Smitten an imprint of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas Publication date: September 16, 2019 To gain his wife, he must break her heart. Past betrayal has turned John Kliest’s passion to his work as a builder and surveyor in the Moravian town of Salem, North Carolina.

Can she learn to love this stoic man who is now her husband? Her survival hinges on being able to trust him—but they both harbor secrets.



I loved this story by Denise!! She's one to watch in the future for more outstanding books such as this! Her writing and research is truly amazing!

Have you ever felt that you left something undone because something happened or God just shut the door in your face and said no more? I have many times and this last time was a bust. Wow!! I'm up in airs about what to do now because I'm not sure how I should proceed. I've prayed and prayed but He hasn't answered yet. But when the time is right He will. Might not be what I want to hear but... So in this way I feel just like Clarissa and John did!! My heart ached for them!

God can take bad and use it for good just like in the story. We only need to be patient. Once a seed has been planted it's up to the people to see if it grows or not. God does work in mysterious ways.

As I read this book it certainly had me thinking! Especially about the what ifs.

I knew about the earthquakes of 1811-12 but I didn't know that they stretched down into Georgia!

Georgia has a fascinating history as do all the states but I was more interested in this state. The names were a little hard to pronounce but that is because they're Indian names.

I believe that on our way to Florida we even ran across the names of the river and the creeks. Of course! We had to cross over them! I can't imagine what it must've been like when there were no bridges to cross like there is now.
Georgia is a beautiful state. I think I'd like to go back and explore it more.
I applaud the missionaries. They've done remarkable works. It takes a brave soul to do what they've done. Especially back in those days. We never know what we might find.
And here's a hard truth There's good and bad in everyone. Not just certain ones! My son keeps reminding me of that. People will be people.
My thanks to the author and Singing Librarians for a copy of this book. NO compensations were received and all opinions are my own. Sorry so lengthy
