Amazon.de

If you start your novel with a terminally ill child and a last-chance herbal remedy, chances are you've got a story. If you have the terminally ill child survive a car accident and become lost in the remote West Virginia woods you've got some stressful reading. If, for kicks, you put a psychopathic murderer in the woods, you've got Diane Chamberlain's nail-biting drama The Courage Tree. Sophie Donohue is the wise-beyond-her-years child. Janine is the mother wolf who courageously admits her child into the clinical trial of a new medicine against the advice of her ex-husband, Joe, and her cynical parents. Lucas Trowell is the literally tree-hugging love interest who supports Janine. Chamberlain knows how to place her characters in internal and external conflicts, and there are rich subplots for each character, though the abundance and timing of them can detract from the central drama. Even with its faults, The Courage Tree will lure you in and keep you reading late into the night.--Nancy R.E. O'Brien

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very readable 31. Dezember 2013
Von KrankyKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In this very readable novel, two mothers are trying to save their daughters. Very sick little Sophie doesn't return from Brownie camp one Sunday in June. Her mother Janine, divorced from the dad, will not give up the search. She trusts her daughter is alive, and knows that she needs her mother's help. Everything is more urgent because Sophie has renal disease and is in desperate need of dialysis. Another mother is trying to help her daughter in the very parts of the West Virginia woods in which Janine is searching for Sophie.

Draws you in. Good observations, credible characters, good writing.
A little too constructed in parts, just a little much of the cult of true motherhood, but very enjoyable. Couldn't put the book down.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buchbewertung und erneute Anfrage 17. Mai 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich war von dem Buch begeistert.
Für mich sind alle Bücher von Diana Chamberlain ein Garant für Spannung und Feingefühl.

Ich wollte noch anfragen ,ob beim Kauf von Kindle €49.- meine Bücher vom bereits gekauften Kindle Paperwhite
automatisch zusätzlich dort heruntergeladen würden. Im Urlaub würde ich dann den "Kindlle €49.-mitnehmen,
da dieser leichter ist.
Vielen Dank noch einmal.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't miss this one! 12. Februar 2001
Von Amy Leemon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Diane Chamberlain has written several really good books and this one certainly tops the list. It grabs you from the first chapter and is very, very hard to put down. It has all the ingredients for a fantastic read - a sick lost child, distraught family, ex husband and his new girlfriend, a hidden shack in the woods with another mother and daughter who are hiding out for their own reasons, and a mother who is determined against all odds to find her missing child.
It grabs you from the first chapter and never, ever lets up.
Great character development and people you really come to know and care about.
You won't go wrong with this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shows Why Diane Chamberlain is one of my favorite authors 12. Februar 2001
Von Maudeen Wachsmith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
With The Courage Tree Diane Chamberlain again proves she is one of the best writers contemporary women's fiction has to offer.
Despite misgivings and warnings of her parents and ex-husband, Janine Donohue has allowed her eight-year-old daughter Sophie to go off to camp with her Brownie Troup. This is the first time she's been away from home and everyone's concern is magnified by the fact that Sophie has been seriously ill suffering from renal disease. But recently experimental treatments have improved her condition so that dialysis isn't needed as often as it once was, affording Sophie the opportunity to go away for the weekend at camp.
But Sophie doesn't return. The car in which the assistant troup leader and two of the Brownies, including Sophie, were riding, is missing. Janine's ex-husband, Joe and her parents blame Janine. They were not supportive of Sophie going on the trip in the first place. In addition, they are upset that Janine has gone against medical advice to enroll Sophie in the experimental program, despite the fact that it appears to be helping.
Lending support to Janine is her friend, Lucas Trowell, a rather mysterious man who is the head gardener at the estate where Janine and her parents live - her parents in the mansion and Janine and Sophie in a small adjacent cottage. Lucas and Janine have become more than friends but have kept their relationship a secret as Janine knows her parents would not approve. In fact, they believe there is somewhat Lucas is hiding. They even think he could be a pedophile since he seems to have such an unusual interest in Sophie. When they find out Janine is actually having a relationship with this man, they become unglued.
Joe isn't happy either. He's very close to Janine's parents and side with them in nearly every instance against Janine. He also believes he is still in love with Janine and would like to see them re-marry.
Lucas is a mysterious character, that's for sure. Instead of living in his home, he prefers to live in a rather comfortable tree-house adjacent to it. It becomes clear that there is something Lucas is hiding. His comings and goings are rather mysterious, to be sure. One evening when Lucas leaves the search scene to return home, Joe follows. What he discovers only makes him more skeptical.
In the woods near the area where young Sophie is missing, another drama is unfolding. Aging movie star Zoe has faked her own death in order to help her daughter Marti escape from prison. She has found a small shanty in the woods and made her own and is waiting for Marti to join her when Sophie appears - dirty, injured, and badly in need of medical treatment. But Zoe is reluctant to get the help she knows Sophie needs, because she needs to protect her own daughter.
Diane Chamberlain is a master at creating tense drama and then revealing secrets a little at a time - just enough to keep the reader satisfied while turning the pages at a nearly frantic pace. It was all I could do not to read the end of the book - the tension was so high and I was dying to find out what happened. I am glad I read it in succession like I was supposed to because another secret, one which was very surprising, is revealed near the end of the book - one that will have the reader exclaiming, "Wow!"
The characters are so well-drawn. Janine's skeptical and devious mother is one you just want to take and shake some sense into. All the secondary characters feel as real as the main characters. I particularly liked the character of Joe's friend, Paula, who was a stabilizing force in his life. Chamberlain takes the character of Joe and instead of making him into a villain as the ex-husband, shows him as a sympathetic character who really only has the best intentions regarding his ex-wife and daughter.
This is a fabulous story, one that kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning. I absolutely could not put it down and highly recommend this story for lovers of compelling and emotional dramas. The Courage Tree is a true masterpiece of modern American fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A deep taut thriller 30. Januar 2001
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In Virginia, a desperate Janine Donahue accepts an alternative medicine to help her dying eight-year-old child Sophie with her kidney disease. Janine already feels guilty over the stillborn death of her child years ago and she believes that her role in the Arabian Peninsula caused the damage to Sophie. When the child seems to have improved by using Herbalina, Janine allows Sophie to go to an overnight Brownie camp over the objections of her parents and her ex-spouse Joe.

However, something went wrong as the scout leader, another child, and Janine never make it back to the pick-up point where Sophie waits in a state of panic. The police become involved and Sophie searches for her lost child. Her parents and Joe condemn Janine, who knows the trio plans to force her to give up custody in a court battle. Only the strange Lucas Trowell seems to be on Janine's side. Will they find the lost child in time because Sophie desperately needs her medicine and dialysis now?

THE COURAGE TREE is a powerful relationship suspense novel centering on the fear adults feel for their children, especially an ailing child. The story line pulls out all the punches, as Janine with the exception of Lucas feels alone with her parents and Joe piling on the guilt. The subplot involving the aging amazon actress adds little to an already stalwart, poignant drama. Still, Diana Chamberlain shows her abilities with this deep taut thriller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great read by Diane 31. Januar 2001
Von Ann M. Macpherson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The Courage Tree is about love, hope and trust---the kind that so few people truly experience. It's about a young girl who has a chronic illness with a very poor prognosis--end stage renal failure. She is on a non-traditional program of medication that only her mother and a friend support----the rest of the family alienated themselves from the mother because of her decision for the medication. The girl's father also is against this method of treatment. He's struggling with his own emotions. When Sophie doesn't return from a weekend camping trip with the Girl Scouts, everyone becomes part of the "discovery"------of her, of themselves, of each other------and there are several surprises along the way. Diane has a magical way of introducing the many players in the "plot" without confusing anyone. She's also able to weave their lives together, adding some mystery, some mystique and unexpected endings------allowing you to get to know all the characters, to feel their pain, to laugh with them, to smile with them and to be happy for them. I hated to see the book end. I wanted to read more. But then I feel that way every time I read one of Diane Chamberlain's books. She's a master at writing about people-----making the reader feel a part of their lives----as if they're real----making you want to meet them in person. And along the way, you are not bored. There's also a sense of drama and adventure. I truly enjoyed this story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful!! 27. Oktober 2001
Von Judith E. Pavluvcik - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am quickly becoming a Diane Chamberlain fan and her latest book is absolutely wonderful! I found that I could not put down the book and needed to finish it before anything else got done! Chamberlain weaves her story with such precision, that one thinks that they know the ending, but WHAM - a surprise is in store for the reader. The suspense skillfully draws the reader in and does not let go until the very end.
I am finding that "secrets" prevail in her books, and they are not revealed until the end, but the reader is kept in suspense until the very last possible moment! Chamberlain combines romance, mystery, thrills and issues of family all interwoven and cleverly revealing.
The main character, Janine, is incredibly strong, a maverick, who comes into her own despite her overbearing ex-husband and equally over-bearing and controlling parents. Janine meets Lucas, who shows her how to blossom and to become her own person, and to stop the "puppet" like behavior she has come to know. Lucas believes in her decision to start an alternative treatment for her daughter, against the wishes of both her ex-husband and her parents.

The story will appeal to both men and women, and the suspense of not knowing if Sophie, Janine's critically ill 8-year old daughter, will be found, will have the reader hanging onto every page!
The story was every endearing, courageous and filled with the miracle of love conquering all.
I highly recommend this book and am most anxious to read all of her previous books!
