The Men in the Trees centers around a teen mother, Meryl Panagos, who’s barely out of high school, living on her own and struggling to raise a young son in a small Oregon town. Although Meryl has a good job at a friend’s comic book store, it’s still difficult to make ends meet or even find time to talk to the handsome university student who keeps hanging around. Then Rose Washington answers her ad for a roommate and it’s like a wish come true. A retired school teacher, Rose is happy to help cook, clean and even babysit when needed. But Rose has secrets — including a preoccupation with the surrounding wilderness and a century-old legend which may be more ominous than it first appears. Be careful what you wish for.

** Spoilers!!** The Men in the Trees is a novel about a young woman who's a mother of a young boy and trying to make her life into something in the town of Corvallis, OR. Meryl is a very smart person and very clever too. She's made it on her own for a year but she longs to go to college but doesn't have the money so she gets a roommate who has a strange fascination with an old book. The roommate (Rose) is a school teacher who came to OR to find a long lost gold mine and make her fortune, but what she's not telling Meryl is that theres another side to the gold mine legend which include a sinister race of monster who live in the forest. The 2 women, Meryl's young son, her ex-BF and her new BF all decide to search for the gold together and as you can imagine all kinds of problems await them! Thi s is a book which will keep your hair standing on end and wondering who really has secrets and who doesn't. I highly recommend it.
