Publisher's Summary

The year is 1929, and newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton arrive in the North Carolina mountains to create a timber empire, vowing to let no one stand in their way, especially those newly rallying around Teddy Roosevelt's nascent environmental movement. Yet when Serena begins to suspect that George's allegiances may lie elsewhere, she unleashes her full fury on the young mountain woman who bore his illegitimate child the year before. Rash's masterful balance of violence and beauty yields a powerfully riveting story that, at its core, tells of love both honored and betrayed.

I wanted it to be better

This is one of the best narrations I've listened to so far. Phil Gigante is superb! I don't think I'd have enjoyed this as much had it not been for him.
I had high hopes for the story but it fell a little short. It is worth sticking with it to the end but I wished it had hurried up and gotten to the point a little faster.
