5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is a fascinating book about a woman, Elise, who has multiple personalities (DID). The story begins at the funeral of Horace, Elise’s husband, who was also her childhood guardian after both of her parents died. The chapters are cleverly written from different points of view from members of the Tribe following their escape and journey. Elise is the ‘default’ person. I couldn’t put this book down! I was intrigued by the Tribe and I cannot wait for the next book! Thank you to Ms. Frerichs and the publisher for a wonderful new series! Highly recommended. – Amazon reviewer

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An eye-opener!! I was intrigued by the into of a story about a woman with multiple personalities. The story is well planned and held my interest from the first chapter. The more I read the more I wanted to keep reading.
I was enthralled with the emotion and mistrust of the host and her tribe. The way the various personalities felt with one another is unique and very insightful. The anger and self-doubt caused by neglect and abuse came through clearly as did the Ned to unite and communicate clearly with each self. I recommend Girl From the Tree House and look forward to reading more books by Gudrun Frericks. (Amazon review)

4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A very interesting foray into the multiple personalities and perspectives of an abused child, now adult, who has to contend with the machinations of those who would have her put away to “bury” the abuse and, of course, abscond with a fortune. Though the twists and turns of the plot movement were certainly more than enough to keep me reading, the added… (read more on Amazon Review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ After Horace Reid’s death his widow Elizabeth, a woman with multiple personalities who is fighting for her freedom, escapes to the West Coast wilderness, where she meets the ghosts of her past that become very much alive and try to hunt her down, i.e. lock her up in a mental hospital. – A breath-taking novel that additionally gives a touching inside view into the workings of a dissociated mind. – I really appreciate that I had the chance to learn about the inside world of a multiple while being excellently entertained.  (Vivienne E.

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Intriguing all the way, this unique and beautiful story weaves together a tale of one woman’s many different parts as they struggle to rally their strengths in order to trust both themselves, and those that mean to help, all while tangled in a web of conspiracy where abuse and betrayal are the norm. This fascinating story gives an inspired understanding of multiple personalities living in one body, and through the magic of story, illustrates the stigma, fear, and confusion thrust upon those doing their damnedest to cope.
The many voices of the main character immediately draw you into their world, and gain your unending support as they battle for freedom and safety in a threatening world full of corruption. There is drama, mystery, murder, action, and even a little romance – all beautifully delivered through the entertaining voice of a master storyteller. What’s not to love? (Amazon review)

4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I believe this is the first book I have read that deals with multiple personalities and I didn’t really know what to expect. I guess for me there has always been some distrust with the idea of multiple personalities because…if you don’t know who you’re talking to, how can you know where you stand? I can’t say that I’m not still a little uneasy with the idea, but this book did help me understand a lot about how Dissociative Identity Disorder really works. It makes more sense to me now. It was really interesting to see how different personalities served different purposes and interacted.
For the most part the story flowed well and I found it very easy to hope that the Tribe succeeded. The fear of hospitalization came through loud and clear. There were one or two times that I checked to see which personality was telling the story, but most of the time they were distinct enough that I didn’t have any trouble knowing who was speaking. The only part of the book that didn’t really work for me was the little bit of paranormal in the story. I’m not sure if it’s meant to play a bigger role in the series, but it really didn’t seem to serve much purpose here.
This book is the first in a series but I think it works very well as a standalone. The little bit of romance was sweet and felt right for the story.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book received through NetGalley. (Amazon review)

4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Girl From the Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs was one of my favorite summer reads thus far. This book had me from the first page. Elizabeth and her multiple personalities, all of whom had their own personalities, despite sharing the same body. I wish the book came with a map/description for all of her personalities so you could keep track of them. However, Gudrun does an amazing job of describing whom (is this the play to use whom) is in control of the “body”.
There were twists and turns along with some action in this book.
I feel like if I explain any more I’ll give the book away. I must say that despite having multiple personalities, Elizabeth is a pretty bad ass character. If you are looking for a good summer/beach read you should pick this book up, you will not regret it.
Thank you to Gudrun Frerichs, BooksGoSocial and Netgalley for the advanced copy for my Kindle. I apologize that my moving has delayed this review a couple of weeks 🙁 (Amazon review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I have read and re-read this book x2. It is a fantastic and tasteful book on a life of a multiple. Many times we read from an outside perspective, or rather a disjointed ramshackle attempt at a first person view. This book is neither. Their flight, fight to cope alone is read worth, and adding in the extra elements in this story it is just outstanding. I read this as I said twice. And it was as good the second time. I had talked about it on my FB page, people wanted to read this. A tasteful fictional story with the built in psychological there before you open the book is refreshing. Read this book. I was able to read this in return for my unbiased opinion on the story, compliments of Netgalley. (Amazon review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A compelling, cleverly crafted novel about someone with multiple personalities which manifests as Dissociative Identity Disorder. I could hardly put it down. Gudrun does a fantastic job of weaving  the threads of the main characters, that could only be so tactfully and realistically told through the insight of her professional expertise.  Highly recommended read (Amazon review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Just finished reading it. At first it was a little hard to get in to, but once the story took off, it became a real page turner! It made dissociative identity disorder easier to understand and aware of, personalizing it where it felt like I was Elizabeth, signs of an exceptional author that I look forward to reading more from. (Amazon review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Girl From The Tree House is a thought provoking account of Elizabeth and her struggle with multiple personality disorder. It is very well written. It goes into details leaving you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next. Because of the subject matter this is not a book that is one you should be afraid to read. It is extremely well thought out and describes the Tribe in such a way that is easy to understand and follow. Well Done!!
This book was provided for free in exchange for my honest opinion, and I can tell you, that you will not be disappointed. It is a book you need to definitely read. (Amazon review)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was such an amazing look into DID. I like the way the character and her alters are portrayed. It’s unlike any multiple personalities story that I’ve read in the past. Makes it seem like this is what it would be like living with the disorder, not like movies portray. – M.M.Brown, Goodreads

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ What an incredible story! Stepping into the world of a person with multiple personalities was fascinating. This psychological thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. Beautifully written, hauntingly powerful, and a true testament to the power of the human spirit. Highly recommended. (BookBub)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Unbelievably good book. I wasn’t sure I would like a book about a woman with multiple personalities. But I’m happy to say I was not at all disappointed to read Girl From The Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs. This book pulled me in from the first page to the very last page. It was interesting looking into the split mind of Elise. I couldn’t imagine what life would be like having so many parts inside my brain. Being only too familiar with abuse at an early age, I can understand the mind fragmenting into different pieces in order to handle the trauma. This book is well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat and you hope and pray Elise escapes her abusers once and for all. I would highly recommend this novel to anyone. I requested a free review copy of this book through StoryOrigin and am voluntarily leaving a review. (BookBub)

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Reviewed By Tracy Young for Readers’ Favorite – When Elizabeth lost both her parents at an early age, she was taken care of by Horace Reid and his sister Helen. To the outside world, Elizabeth was cared for and kept safe by the siblings and when she married Horace at the age of 18, it seemed like a perfect match. Fast forward to Horace’s funeral and Elizabeth is now a widow who has a history of mental illness and is considered unstable. Hearing her sister-in-law planning to hospitalize her following the funeral, Elizabeth decides to escape and forge her own future. Girl From The Treehouse is the story of Elizabeth who has multiple personalities disorder and author Gudrun Frerichs tells it with aplomb. Ama, Sky, Amadeus, and Lilly are among many personas that live within the body the world knows as Elizabeth. Each one of them has a purpose and a distinct skillset and they work together to make the world a safer place for Elise, who is the host that has replaced Elizabeth following a trauma at a very early age.

Girl From The Tree House is a fascinating psychological thriller that explores the world of multiple personalities and helps the reader understand why Dissociative Identity Disorder is a coping mechanism that can follow multiple traumas. My only former experience with the concept has been through film and TV and has led to a misconception over the nature of the concept. Gudrun Frerichs has a depth of knowledge that helps to educate and inform the interested reader through the power of fiction. Girl From The Treehouse is a gripping story of the lengths certain groups will go to in order to silence their victims. It is also a touching story about a woman who has been treated appallingly learning to trust again and coming to realize that there is some good in the world. A must-read for fans of psychological thrillers and thought-provoking, dramatic novels. (Reader’s Favorite)
