The life of fiftyish Jessie Dearborn takes an unexpected turn when a ruthless developer threatens to cut down century-old trees in her small northern town in order to build a condominium. Surprising even herself, she steps in front of a chainsaw to defend the trees she loves. As the fight to save the trees intensifies, a group of gutsy, quick-witted older women joins the battle and explodes the issue into the newsmedia. At this turning point in her life, a native man helps Jessie by teaching her to trust her own instincts. Passion erupts between them and Jessie discovers a middle-aged sexuality as hot as the midday sun. Like a Group of Seven painting, Tree Fever is a love affair with nature, its wisdom, raw colours and elemental beauty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very good! I didn't read all of this book as I can only take so many I's on one page. The cover is beautiful but the book is written in the first person, which I hate.I never did get to point of the story so gave it up. Some of you may like the way the book is written in the first person but I don't, even though Muskoka is mentioned. Flying.... her second book is also written in the first person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspirational Read, Made Me Feel Great I got into the book right away and couldn't put it down. When I finished it I missed the characters, they felt like they were my good friends! Lucky I bought the second in this trilogy, "Flying Lessons". Now I am eagerly anticipating the 3d book. "Tree Fever" is about environmental concerns, but the author puts together a sort of blue-print on how to go about saving the environment. I can't really explain it here, but when she puts together her rag tag team to fight the forces of "progress" it is kind of step by step instructions on how to fight for what you believe in.
