"The Kind Darkness of Trees" is Valerie Adam Freeman's debut novel.

Frank Monro is dying all over again.

Having believed her beloved, unreliable dad died decades previously, Fran Peterson now receives a letter revealing otherwise.

Meanwhile others in Fran’s life are sustaining injury. Alec plays snooker religiously to fend off his helplessness as he desperately tries to piece his wife back together. Her young colleague, Will, chases after a hope of love that seems insubstantial as air. Muriel, efficient and isolated, finds her well-ordered world beginning to unravel.

An interior, moving novel about a woman struggling to come to terms with the fault lines in her past, "The Kind Darkness of Trees" explores themes of loss, dissociation, faith and forgiveness with a gentle intensity.
