Taking her inspiration from the medieval tradition of carving Jesse Trees – a method used to explain the genealogy of Jesus – McCaughrean uses all her skill as a storyteller to weave together evocative retellings of Bible stories with a contemporary tale about the creation of a modern-day Jesse Tree and the transforming power of friendship and love.
