A delightfully enchanting mountain story Written by Carol Wright Krause

dry·ad ˈdrīˌad,-əd/ (in folklore and Greek mythology) a nymph inhabiting a forest or a tree, esp. an oak tree; legend holds that if you free a dryad, you will be rewarded with a kiss...  

The Great Depression has hit the Appalachian Mountains pretty hard, and things are looking bleak when Lena finally leaves her no-good husband and goes home to her daddy’s farm. To make matters worse, the chestnut trees that locals have always depended on are dying off, one by one. When a mysterious young girl appears, Lena and her family’s lives are changed forever. But where did the girl come from, and what does she want?
