Publisher's Summary

As Arthurian myth sowed the seeds of democracy, The Rowan Tree foretells a world of founded upon dignity. Anchored by a pair of interlocking love stories, this unflinching novel of ideas brims with passionate quests, revelatory failures, and inextinguishable hope.
The Rowan Tree is an inspirational tour de force that reaches from the rebellious American '60s into humanity's global future. Soul-searching treks around the world intersect with campus revolution, basketball, math, ballet, and a destined rise to the White House. Love runs ahead of politics and lights the way for nations to follow.

Read this book, don't listen!

I couldn't not finish this one, but I truly wish that I had read, rather than listened to it. I have read reviews where people have suggested that authors should never read their books for the audio version. This is definitely one of them. I had to speed up the narration just to be able to continue to listen to his voice!
The story was certainly interesting, as were the characters. Although the book was long, the characters were never completely fleshed out and neither were their stories. I was intrigued with the concept of dignity and governance, and wondered where the author was taking this. Yet again this was another concept that was never fully fleshed out, and which was left hanging.
I am left with ideas & concepts which I will continue to mull over & see where they take me personally. Was this the author's intent?
I could not give it a better rating, and I cannot recommend it to anyone else to listen to.

Don't like it

Not good as audible because the author read it. He does not know how to change or alter his voice. So you don't know who is talking.
The story started real good , Rowan a professor who fall in love with his student who is black. Until it came to his daughter falling in love with his half brother. And the story just went on and on and on.
