Harriet Norton won't stop crying. Her parents, Ann and Thomas,are being driven close to insanity and only one thing will help. Mysteriously, their infant daughter will only calm when she's under the ancient trees of Bleasdale forest.
The Nortons sell their town-house and set up home in an isolated barn. Secluded deep in the forest, they are finally approaching peace - until one night a group of men comes through the trees, ready to upend their lives and threaten everything they've built. 

Into the Trees is the story of four dispossessed people, drawn to the forest in search of something they lack and finding their lives intertwining in ways they could never have imagined. In hugely evocative and lyrical writing, Robert Williams lays bare their emotional lives, set against the intense and mysterious backdrop of the forest. Compelling and haunting, Into the Trees is a magisterial novel.

Now and then I encounter a novel that carries me so completely inside its own world that I wake the next day expecting to find myself there. Into the Trees, by Robert Williams, is exactly that sort of novel—lyrical, sharply observed, with the punch of myth and plenty of drive.

There’s something magnetic about Into the Trees that pulls you firmly into the narrative’s embrace and haunts you long after you’ve turned the final page.

Into the Trees is a wonderful novel. Beautifully crafted, sharply observed and told with a heartbreaking sense of foreboding, Robert Williams’ exploration of the seductive power and terrible potential of rural isolation will lure you deep into Bleasdale forest and leave you reeling once this apparent sanctuary is shattered.
