Robert Madrygin's debut novel is about a Bosnian War refugee of Muslim heritage who moves to the United States and has his world transformed (again) by 9/11. Patricia Whalen, former international judge of the War Crimes Chamber at the Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, wrote: "The Solace of Trees tells the story of a child's ability to survive the unspeakable trauma of war with grace and resilience, and how these very skills become necessary once again as an adult. It is a story of human cruelty delivered by opposite forces, and of the power of the individual to make a difference each time."
