Theirs was an idyllic friendship; their experiences together at Penrose College the very best that life could offer. But that was then. Stained glass artist Juno McKay is forced to confront the events that shattered the intense friendship between herself, her best friend, Christine, and her husband, Neil, when she discovers, after years of absence, that Christine is to deliver a lecture at their college reunion. Despite her misgivings, Juno finds herself compelled to attend the lecture about the history of one of Penrose College’s most hallowed works of art. The stir Christine creates with her discoveries is unprecedented, but when she is discovered floating in the Hudson River after having apparently committed suicide, Juno is forced to confront the truth of their past, and the chilling emotional truths she thought she had buried forever.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An artful thriller, with rich, vivid descriptions of works of art, Hudson River Valley scenery, and the knotty inner terrain of its characters’ hearts.” Publishers Weekly
“Filled with descriptions of beautiful Hudson River scenery and references to mythology and art, this gripping novel will hold the reader’s attention until the very last page.” Library Journal
“Goodman immerses readers in a fun and quirky mystery and at the same time explores universal themes of loss and disappointment and the redeeming possibilities of creativity, friendship, and work.” Boston Globe
“Deftly plotted and certainly intriguing…Infused with the sinister aura of its setting, a rundown river town with the crenulated towers of an insane asylum rising in the background. The Drowning Tree has its twists and shudders.” New York Daily News
“It is an unalloyed pleasure to witness a writer growing into the fullness of early promise. Carol Goodman, who writes unusually rich literary suspense, hits her stride with The Drowning Tree.” Denver Post
“Christine Marshall fits herself into the role of Juno, who, as storyteller, invests herself in the outcome of the investigation. Marshall also presents distinct voices for the core group of characters, maintaining a good pace as the plot details the history and interrelations of those involved.” AudioFile
