Emmaline Ross was a child of the foster-care system. She had no desire to deal with the reality that was her life, so she created the story she needed. Emmaline became 'Just Em. Like in James Bond'. Em Guy is 50-something when she decides to end her life. Her death is an abrupt shock to her family; they resent her for it. Her husband, Twain, hasn't the courage to contemplate life without Em. Her adult children could not differ more. For Biz, she was a stalwart refuge; for Thea an exacting constraint. For them both, Em's death is stunning and liberating. Em's lifelong friend Queenie simply hankers for what was. Many More Trees is the stories we tell in the narrative of our own lives. It's the lies we tell, the moments we capture, the events we choose to recall; how we call these memories and give them the status of fact. It is about the danger and joy of believing in stories. It's a story about - in the end - whether our lives are fact or fiction is irrelevant. Because, in the end, your home is... your prison... your sanctuary... where your heart is... where your story lives.
