The Unicorn Tree by Cynthia Collins

A teenage girl whose brother is lost at sea…the diary of a nineteenth-century woman…and the special place that binds them.
Lisa Duncan, a seventeen-year-old high school senior, has an assignment to tour historic Mirabelle Manor, a large estate built in 1850 by a sea captain for his wife. During the tour, she begins to suspect that Mirabelle’s ghost is watching her. One of the items on display is a diary, open to a passage about going to a place called the unicorn tree to watch for ships. This appeals to Lisa whose brother is currently sailing across the Atlantic on a commemorative voyage. When news arrives that his ship is lost at sea, her interest in the diary deepens as the past and present lead her to discover what happened.

Five Star Review on Amazon by Kindle Customer 49

Cynthia Collins’ The Unicorn Tree is not your typical Young Adult book fare. Very well-written, it combines history, teenage angst, family crisis, and the occult in a wonderful blend that keeps the pages turning. An added plus is you will learn a lot about nautical terms and how old ships work. In short, I highly recommend it!
