The Land Where Wisdom Speaks, Where Trees All Dance and Play is a playful allegory about the Christian life depicting the Fruit of the Spirit as personalities come alive. As each beautifully illustrated persona guides the character; Pilgrim, on his journey of life, he discovers a deeper understanding for each characteristic fruit recorded in Galatians 5:22–23. The story begins in response to Pilgrim's prayer for Wisdom, where he is miraculously translated to the father's garden path, encountering the flower of love to begin his journey. The book further includes a chapter on the armor of God, and another on Rhema in the author's unique allegoric format. The book began as a vision resulting from the author's prayer for wisdom over six years during a time of self-imposed hardships, enticing temptations, and impassioned struggles. Readers are encouraged to walk with the character; Pilgrim, through the chapters of life where Wisdom reveals her many secrets. Readers have commented on the ease with which they have found themselves in many of the situations offered and taken delight in the scriptural presentations represented that have helped them grow in their faith. It is with an enthusiastic heart I offer you, the reader, to walk with me now along the garden path, where trees all dance and play.

As the city buckles under the beat of a thousand feet, she finds herself thrust into a dangerous web of deceit and clandestine passion, but she is dancing to a dangerous tune . . . Set in an era of superstition, hysteria, and extraordinary change, and inspired by the true events of a doomed summer, The Dance Tree is an impassioned story of family secrets, forbidden love, and women pushed to the edge.
