A short story, The Tree Thing was the inspiration for Earth Legend, the third and last novel in the Legends series. The Tree Thing is about one member of the Olmstead family, descendants of the goddess Ceres. The Olmsteads are esssential for life on earth because they keep the plants alive that keep humankind alive.
But don’t mess with goddesses! When one member of this family is dumped by her fiance, she’s not happy. Not at all. And when he wants to reunite with her, she’s got to think about it. And show him a thing or two.
