the Eden Tree
by Peter Worthington

PRESS RELEASE
An ancient relic opens a family up to new beginnings, and dangerous forces, in this captivating new fiction inspired by the author?s own experiences with losing a child to cancer.

Mark Twain said, ?The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.? John James Morgan knew the day he was born. Two days before his sixty-first birthday he found out why.

John is a happily married businessman, father and grandfather, living in Cheshire, in the heart of England. Happy, that is, until his family face a crisis. His grandson Wesley, son of his daughter Becky, is terminally ill. Darkness has come to Kirmingsham Hall. At the local market, a flower-seller tells John a story of a mysterious box that will change his life and those around him. Assured his destiny is in his own hands, John crosses the globe in pursuit of a religious artefact which has remained hidden for two thousand years. Finally in Tel Aviv he is presented with an antique box containing maps, parchments and a bag of leaves. On his return to the UK John witnesses a miracle. With the box in his possession, John and his family find new friends and enemies; lives are threatened and people die, although some will be healed. With the help of many different people, from all walks of life -from a Mossad Colonel, a group of cyber buffs, and his son James? John?s journey will finally lead him to the discovery of an extraordinary and mysterious tree. But what will this Eden tree mean to John, his family, their faith and their future?

The Eden Tree is author Peter Worthington's first novel and is inspired by his own experiences with his son, John Wesley, who underwent treatment for cancer but sadly passed away shortly after his seventh birthday. Although a difficult time, Peter has never lost his faith, or exuberance for life, and The Eden Tree is his way of giving his much-loved son a happier ending. He hopes it will give comfort, and escapism, to others who have gone or are going through similar difficult situations in their own lives.

Enlightening and adventurous with touches of comedy, and a World of Warcraft tournament, makes The Eden Tree an engrossing and heartwarming story that can, and will, be enjoyed again and again.
