'Jacob is trapped in a dying village. No hope, no friends, no future.
But when Simon the Healer appears everything begins to miraculously transform. The lake, the land and even the villagers themselves blossom into what they should have been all along: beautiful, strong, vital.
Jacob learns the lost art of Tree Singing and suddenly the future opens up for him. He pursues his dream of becoming a great flute maker and Singer to the ancient Baboda trees, while Simon moves on, intent on spreading his healing to other parts of the world.
Dreams, however, are powerful things and often deliver a future in ways unexpected. For every rise there is a fall, and for every fall the path rises to meet us once again.' [from the publisher's website]
