My Wise Eyed Linden Tree

In the heart of the Salzburg Fortress, stands one lone 500 year old Linden Tree who overlooks the royal quarters, the kitchen, the prison and the church.  No matter what the day brings, she focuses on the positive aspects of life and unites people of different ideas, religions, languages and races and helps us all focus on our similarities rather than our differences.



“Hoadley’s My Wise Eyed Linden Tree is very pertinent on many levels.  I see this as a compliment to Black History Month, I see this as something that I would promote in my childrens’ schools, I even see this as something politicians should be paraphrasing.

This tale is truly a masterpiece not only in its ability to be perfectly in verse, but more importantly, it speaks to the values and beliefs that we all should have.  I am sure it will hit a core with both adults and children.”


Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of PBSociety Magazine,


“Hoadley’s ‘My Wise Eyed Linden Tree’ is a touching and beautifully illustrated story which reminds us that in every new project or chapter in our lives, we need hope, faith, love and to focus on growth no matter what may come our way.  I hope schools start adopting this book as part of their curriculum.
