The Rowan Tree Summary


The Rowan Tree - Rowan Ellway is a young college president; Easter Blue, an impassioned student leader. Upon graduation, she takes a fellowship to Africa, and they lose touch. When, decades later, they meet again, they discover that their prior bond was but a rehearsal for the world stage.

THE ROWAN TREE reaches from the tumultuous 1960s into humanity’s future, encompassing the worlds of politics, sport, ballet, presidential leadership, and world governance. An international cast of characters personifies the catalytic role of love in political change.

Replete with illicit loves, quixotic quests, and inextinguishable hope, THE ROWAN TREE foretells a dignitarian world much as the story of King Arthur and the round table sowed the seeds of democracy.

The Rowan Tree Review

    The book is very long, not particularly well written, disjointed; the story itself is grasping at straws and overreaching a realistic story line...fine for a sci-fi novel but didn’t work here. Point of view changes towards the end of the book (not to mention font changing throughout the book, which is very odd), as well as the introduction of a heavy political theme, which was unexpected and unappreciated as it didn’t improve the story at all. I just all around didn’t care for the book. Bummer.

    Maybe the first 600 pages were interesting with complex characters and plot development. The later portion of the book became pedantic with a narrative that compelled me to simply page through until something appeared interesting. Too bad the author got lost in a boring train of thought.

    An engaging story of love, wanderlust and political imagination. Finishes with a refreshing look into the world as it could be in the near future.

    One of the best books I have read in ages. The characters are ones you connect too with passion. But the plot is what drives you to turn page after page and leave you hoping that someday this could become a reality.

    This is a love story, a political study, a story of respect and dignity. Awesome read !!
  • The Rowan Tree is probably not what you hoped

    The description of The Rowan Tree gave me the impression that it was a progressive-minded or at least liberal look at the time periods described. If that’s what you hoped, too, don’t waste your time. Unfortunately, it’s simply a rehash of the old Cold War attitudes that still persist in some minds even though we are supposedly in the 21st century. I put it down before I got halfway through it.

    I hung in through most of it but I never felt any empathy with a single character. It draaaaags on and on. The author drags the reader through decades across the globe, into politics even, but there is no climax. Just awful.
