George and Serena Pemberton arrive in the wilds of the North Carolina mountains to build a life together in a rural logging town.
But Serena Pemberton is unlike any woman this town has ever seen: overseeing crews, hunting rattlesnakes and even saving her husband in the wilderness.
So when Serena learns that she will never bear a child, she is determined that her intensely passionate marriage will not unravel.
A course of events unfolds that will change the lives of everyone in their rural community and bring this riveting tale of love and revenge to its shocking reckoning.
