What happens when you reach your lowest point and find yourself alone, with only your own thoughts to guide you—where do you turn, when even those, turn against you? Born with a deformity in a community as small and isolated in place, as mind—Aron Walden has always been an outcast. His well-meaning parents attempt to help him fit in, but do far more to shield him from his harsh reality. Yet, lost in his love of literature and woodwork, Aron manages a fragile happiness. But when even that sheltered existence is shattered by their deaths, he’s left facing his biggest fear—surviving the unwelcoming world on his own. Determined to carry on, he goes through the motions of living, clinging to his slipping routine on the family dairy, like a dangling lifeline. Until a powerful dream immerses him in pure love, making him acutely aware that he’s a man out of place—out of time. ‘It turned out he was right to worry. People need people in the end.’ Crumbling beneath his loneliness, he decides to kill himself. But when his perfectly choreographed death—rushing past his shocked neighbors in the turbulent river before plummeting the impressive fall—is interrupted by the cries of a young girl, Aron’s fate is altered. He throws himself to the mercy of the river, instead, to save her life. One man's odyssey to find himself and realize his destiny—Beneath the Tree takes us on a journey of unbearable pain and deep, enduring love—filled with breath-taking flashes of self-discovery that reveal the best and worst choices made in desperate moments, the beauty and darkness of life and death—and the profound difference made by how we face each.
