Want a special gift to give someone for the holidays?

Sweet Fruit from the Bitter Tree: 61 stories of creative and compassionate ways out of conflict, is a collection of true stories from (mostly) ordinary people around the world. The book shares how these people found ways out of conflict that are surprising, touching, and sometimes hilarious!

Last year my fiancé and I bought a whole box of these books and gave them out as presents to family and friends. One person later told us that she read the whole book in one night — it was just so good she couldn’t put it down.


These stories are just plain enjoyable to read, and may even change someone’s life! A story’s setting can be anywhere from the backyard, to the school playground, to international conflicts. They range from within one person, to couples, to groups who have been at odds. The unexpected solutions can open the heart, bring a hearty laugh…and then subtly find their way into your unconscious, giving you a greater sense of possibility for connection.

It’s a meaningful gift anyone can enjoy, now at a great price.
