Book Review of River Tree by Marshall Cobb


Beginning with a tiny seed, follow a pecan tree through all the stages of its life. This thoughtful, heartfelt book teaches children to cope with endings and reflects on the beauty of new beginnings.


About the Author, Marshall Cobb


Marshall Cobb was born in Colorado, but spent much of his life in Texas before moving his family to Costa Rica in the summer of 2015.


For over twenty years he worked in the financial/retirement plan industry, opening his own practice in 2001. Much of his success in this arena was due to the articles he regularly penned for clients and their employees which took complicated, often convoluted concepts and terms and broke them down into relatable stories.


Writing, always his first love, is how Marshall spends his time in Costa Rica. In addition to authoring numerous articles for regional publications, such as The Tico Times, he regularly posts articles to his own website and he has completed four novels: Will of The Hill, Census: What Lurks Beneath, The Promise of The Orb, and River Tree.


Eve’s Review of River Tree


I am impressed with the clarity of the message on the circle of life. Mr. Cobb presents the journey through life in terms that children can grab hold of and make sense to them. The River Tree’s circle of life contains joys, struggles, and perseverance.


I enjoyed this book very much. It would make an excellent snuggle time book.

Book Reviewer Eve Culley


Eve, a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother lives on an acreage in central Texas with her hubby, grandson and all the residents of Barn Town.


One of her great joys is sharing her stories with all people but especially children.


Her earliest audiences were her children and then their children.

Storytelling is in her blood she says. It’s a gift she cherishes and loves to share.


Connect with Eve on her website, blog, or on Twitter.
