Magical interlinked stories about what one girl learns from talking to trees throughout Time and from around the world. A companion volume to Eight Princesses and a Magic Mirror by Costa Book Award-winning Natasha Farrant and Lydia Corry.

Trees are storykeepers, witnesses to magic and history. From far away, a girl tumbles like a leaf into our world. She makes a promise, discovers the secrets of an ancient oak, and rescues a boy from a medieval hunt. She learns how wild apple blossom is linked to three runaway brides, and hears about the revenge of an overclipped box tree. From the underground roots to the uppermost branches, from plane trees in Persia, to tulip trees in North America and underwater kelp forests, she listens to the trees telling stories for all time. And she keeps her promise.
