The healing tree

Blue Ridge Books will be hosting a virtual book launch with author Darryl Bollinger on Wednesday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. He will be talking about his new book "The Healing Tree."

Justin Reeve, a scientist working for a small research lab, stumbles across a unique tree while hiking in the Smokies. His Cherokee friends identify it as a sacred healing tree, thought to be extinct and the source of a powerful, ancient remedy capable of curing fatal illness.

Desperate to save his sister who is dying from breast cancer, Justin creates a medicine from the tree and secretly gives it to her. When her apparent recovery leaves doctors confounded, evidence proves the healing tree is the reason.

Unknown to him, a global pharmaceutical firm offers to buy the lab. Surrounded by lies and deception, Justin battles powerful foes willing to use any means necessary to protect their financial interests. With betrayal and death lurking in the shadows, Justin must carefully choose who to trust to save the tree—and his sister.
