The Father’s Tree – Crystal Jencks

The tale of the Garden of Eden is one of the most well-known and universally loved stories of all time, and Dr. Elise Harper and her team believe there’s more than a little truth to it. To prove the science books wrong and religious lore right, they trek into the Caucasus mountain ranges, amidst a world ravaged with war and apocalyptic tragedy.
But shortly into the expedition, events pivot dangerously. Nature and hidden supernatural forces interrupt their mission, and the team’s motivation transforms from finding the Tree of Life to simply maintaining life itself.
Complicating things, the group is infused with wild cards, which drive tensions even higher, keeping them guessing if the future brings a chance for new beginning, or a path leading to death.
