Shade of the Raintree is a son's search for an understanding of his father's baffling act. It is also the moving story of what it is like to grow up in the wake of a family tragedy, and to grow up with a novel instead of a father. Raintree County does not displace Melville's masterpiece, but it definitely comes in with the silver med I hadn't until Jared Carter handed me a copy of the book a few months ago. I very much wish I had found this book earlier, though, perhaps, I may not have enjoyed it as much (I did not really appreciate Moby-Dick until well after college).4/5(77).
