EMPIRE OF THE TREES is set in India in 1963.  When Deborah, a young American woman living in New Delhi, strikes up a literary and romantic bond with a traveling Indian bookseller, she discovers she has a mysterious connection to ancient Indian myth.  She tries to share her new awareness with her husband, an ambitious journalist, but clashes with his inter-cultural suspicions, and cruel facts of class and history.  She seeks spiritual solace with the bookseller, and from the wise old Banyan tree in her yard – which causes her household to explode, and myth to spill into reality.
