Always a treat for me to read a book set locally for me. The Language of Trees by Ilie Ruby is set in Canadaigua, NY and includes local haudenosaunee traditions of the Seneca tribe. A small town setting, well developed characters, and some historical context are included in Ruby's novel. There was a little bit of predictability, but over all was well written. The several small subplots were well connected, and I kept finding myself wanting to pick up the book to finish it. I would definitely read more by Ilie Ruby
