Time and the Tree is a modern fable about the nature of time and the quest for happiness. It's darkly funny, deceptively simple, and a necessary read for testing times.

“A genre-busting masterpiece, full of pacy storytelling, wry dialogue and philosophical challenge…”
- Declan Kiberd – Author, Professor Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame, and leading authority on modern Irish literature

"Time and the Tree by Roisin Sorahan is truly a masterpiece...A fable of thought provoking metaphors, knowledge and an awareness of the bigger picture...I would recommend it for all who relish beautiful literature..."
- San Francisco Book Review (5/5 star rating)

“You know when you read the first page of a book and a tingle of excitement envelopes you and you KNOW it is going to be something different and a great read."
- Patricia Scanlan - Author

“Time and the Tree is unlike anything I’ve read in contemporary literature – a beautiful fable fit for difficult and confusing days.”
- Luke Gerwe - Associate Editor, PBS NewsHour

In this gripping philosophical novel, an unlikely cast grapple with choices and grope towards self-knowledge in a world where compassion is interwoven with menace. Lyrical, honest and heart-breaking, Time and the Tree confronts readers with a unique perspective on the challenges life presents.

A cross between Samuel Beckett and Aesop’s Fables, this wise and hopeful book is uplifting and unsettling by turns.
