The Smoke Tree by Stefanie Nici
The Smoke Tree is a fantastic book, true to life, and wonderfully relatable.
Tora’s life turns upside-down, and she ends up alone, at the precipice of a new life. But things take a turn for the better as the little Yorkie Peanut enters the picture, especially when she is the reason behind Tora meeting a very… agreeable veterinarian.
Even though this sounds like a love story, The Smoke Tree is so much more than that. It is a journey of self-acceptance, where Tora must realise her own strength and carry on. She must allow herself a second chance and believe she can do it.
There is an essential and heartfelt lesson to take away from a book like this. It was brilliant to follow along on Tora’s journey and her quest for happiness. A highly recommended read!
