Strong as the Tree Stand: A Family After All


Our family is the home we always want to be with. Through thick and thin, we can all do all things because of their unconditional support and love. "You can never get away with your roots," as they say. It is believed that no matter what happens to you or changes occur in your life, you still belong to an indelible mark of the family you belong to. That is something you can't deny from anyone.


Adversities in life are inevitable. What if one day all the things you shared together with your family are gone? We can reflect on such challenges most families faced like this time of the pandemic. There are job retrenchment, consistent paying of bills, anxiety attacks, and even health problems at home. Imagine how strong and grounded a tree must be for a family to withstand this unexpected storm.

We can reflect this trial to the beautiful story of a family that happened in the past from the book "The Eucalypt Tree" by Maggie Taylor - Saville. It is a fictional story based on the real-life lives of two German brothers and three English sisters. It sheds light on a family's life during the 1800s, who, through circumstances, find themselves living on the Victorian goldfield in Australia. From a prosperous life, Samuel's household was suddenly brought to the verge of poverty. Their family is already helpless about regaining their comfortable life; it seems already impossible with what they are now. Like other inspiring stories, Samuel's daughters - Jessica, Annabelle, and Emma, find their way to take the extra mile to rise above and conquer this life adversity. They learn to appreciate each other amidst suffering throughout the journey and realize what true love is. It is a kind of narrative that shows the beauty beyond something tragic; we can stand strong like a tree.


Maggie Taylor-Saville brings life to the characters in "The Eucalypt Tree" through her creativity in words while reflecting a world relatable to our current society. The story covered themes linked to dark secrets, personal struggles, loss of faith, and the turmoil of poverty. The author allowed the characters to shine as it features tenacity amidst trials and compassion to one another as a family. Indeed, the storyline is overall inspiring!
