"Julie Prince is a college student at the top of her class and seems destined for conventional success. But then she falls in love with Neil, a radical environmental activist and graduate student writing on the economics of deforestation. At his urging she abandons her privileged East Coast life to tree-sit in the forests of Oregon. Julie at first regards the journey as a romantic field trip; soon, though, she finds herself increasingly moved by the lush magnificence of the endangered forest and, like Neil, invested in its protection. As Neil veers toward militant acts of sabotage, Julie is forced to reassess her loyalties and beliefs: How much damage is done by doing nothing? When is it wrong to do good too zealously? How can she choose between the boy she loves and her own sense of righteousness and morality? Exploring this edge, The Tree-Sitter is a novel about learning the price of love and idealism."--Jacket

Uniform justice by Donna Leon( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This internationally best-selling novelist has captivated fans throughout the world with her ever adroit, big-hearted Venetian detective Commissario Guido Brunetti. The Guardian raved that Leon's Brunetti series is crime writing of the highest order: powerful, relevant, and all too full of human failings. As Uniform Justice opens Brunetti is called to investigate a parent's worst nightmare: A young cadet has been found hanged, a presumed suicide, in Venice's elite military academy. Brunetti's sorrow for the boy, so close in age to his own son, is rivaled only by his contempt for a community that is more concerned with protecting the reputation of the school, and its privileged students, than this tragedy. As Brunetti pursues his inquiry, he is faced with a wall of silence. Is the military protecting its own? And what of the other witnesses? Is this the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is Brunetti facing a conspiracy far greater than this one death?

Then a family crisis occurs, and Jerry finds he must face his disengagement in his relationships: with his deceased wife, the circumstances of whose death he has never fully accepted; with his former girlfriend, whom he still longs for; with his daughter, who refuses to address the disease that threatens her life; with his son, who is in danger of losing the family business; and with his father, whom he has placed in a nursing home."--Jacket
